He found a BEFORE picture!

Chicago knitting art

I was in Chicago for a few days this past weekend, and I managed to make it downtown. As we were looking for parking, we passed something called the "Stitching Salon"- which I thought was a new yarn store. I was wrong. When I finally made it back there, it turned out that the Chicago tourism board has put together an exhibition of knit artwork, coupled with an interactive project, and free lessons.

I added to the interactive project... which was organized by the Windy City Knitting Guild. Basically, it was a sewing form set on top of a table, and the Guild had put a sweater on the form, and attached a "skirt" made up of swatches of every size, and people sitting around the table were encouraged to add to the skirt. There were vases of knitting needles, crochet hooks, needles and a wall of yarn, ribbon and beads to pick from. I wish I had a camera- but I'll be heading back to Chicago in about 3 weeks- right when the Stitching Salon will be closing. Maybe I'll get my picture then, and see what someone added after me!

Here's a picture of it that I found
