I know I haven’t talked (typed?) much about knitting here recently, which isn’t to say I haven’t been knitting. I have, just due to high humidity and clammy hands, I haven’t been knitted as much.

Prior to this year, I was a cold-weather only knitter. But the ladies of SnB Norhtside have made make the habit year-round, if only to share in their company one night a week.

Me

For my first year in Chicago I went to my knitting circle on and off as my theatre scheduled permited, this year was a little more flexible and they had moved the lovely Kopi cafe, which is nice walk from my apartment.

As Mr. Cleaver can attest, Tuesday nights are often a highlight of my week and even if I screw up on a project, I always come home in a good mood.

This past Tuesday was a farewell party at SnB, with three members (myself included) leaving in the upcoming weeks.  I decided to bring along the camera to capture it all before I go away. So I’m just going to let the photos speak for themselves, with a caption or two (and if I misspell anyone’s name I’m sorry!)
