I know it's been a few weeks, but I just got my internet connected today. I have hours of blog reading to catch up on.
Let's begin! The move was a success! Well I guess that as long as I left there and I'm here now, like most moves, I was successful. I'm freaking in love with my new digs and my surrounding area. Let's take a walking tour of my neighborhood, shall we?
Closest and possibly most important, there is yarn.
The closest yarn shop is a grueling walk across the street and 20 feet up the sidewalk. No lie. It's a small shop but it's filled with really nice yarn. More on that later.
Next up we have this:
Right outside the door of the tattoo shop is some public art.
That is some genuine crocheted graffiti.
A few blocks up on the left is Boystown, home of some of the best leather shops in the country.
A long haul over to Lincoln Park and we find my bretheren.
I have a thing about giraffes. They're tall, I'm tall etc. Like I said, it's a thing. And this fella lives in a free zoo 2 miles from my house. It's kismet.
While it not exactly within walking distance, there's a botanica a short bus ride away.
Sigh. It feels like home already.
I have been knitting. When I went to the yarn shop I bought some Alpaca on mad sale.
I'm knitting a scarf for a friend.
I'm so glad to be settled and can't wait to get some intense pre-autumn knitting.
