Oh, it’s Loose Ends Friday [when I’d hoped it’d be New Threads Friday!]

My silly day job [40+ hrs a week toiling in photojournalist land] has been eating into my knitting time lately…

Consolation Prize: an assignment where I not only got to climb scaffolding and be up high but one that allowed over 700 boxers to wave and make smileys at me as they passed my position. They were part of the AIBA Boxing Championships Parade that went down State St from the Palmer House to the Chicago Theatre. Imagine my delight when the rather, or should I say, really, handsome Italian team went by and blew me kisses…

Most foxified: the Argentian Team. Most We Mean Business, We’re Boxers: a tie

    Moldova – my grandfather left there in 1905 when that territory was still part of the AustroHungarian Empire…
