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

Just what does an already good pair of boots need this Fall?


Colored tights; textured tights; yes, even black tights.

When it came time to shoot the new Beryl sweater pictures for the pattern, it only seemed natural to find some color to go down the runway with it! The dramatic blue of the sweater (called *Blue Velvet* by the yarn co.) seemed to want a little fun of its own…

In front you see the first thing I found: a pair of turquoise leggings. Now, I’m not really on the leggings bandwagon but I felt with a little cropping they might work.

I’d already visited WOLFORD & WeLoveColor and had been inflamed with the possibilities of leg-to-go but I had to find something in town, that very afternoon.

The leggings were from Express on Mich Ave. Then I wandered up to Bloomingdale’s and even though they had a wall of Wolford, they did not have any colors
