Misc knitting + wanderlust ...

It is fun for me to see how these two balls of yarn ..

 Starting from the 'toe'

 ... are starting to look like socks?   Still have a few more classes to go ....

I had an e-mail from friend who said she missed my day trip photos - I forget to post on the blog - so much quicker to do on Facebook.   So ... here is yesterday's day trip into Chicago:

 I visited the Driehaus Museum for the Maker and Muse exhibit -- it is located at 40 E Erie St, Chicago, IL.   The next exhibit will be Downton Abbey costumes.

 Stopped in to Macy's on State Street - the tree will light on Saturday.   The ceiling is spectacular with the stars hanging.   And, enjoyed seeing the Tiffany mosaics on the 5th floor ceiling.   More about the ceiling on this link:

 The glass window is in the Pedestrian Way - basement of Macy's [walk thru the candy department to the Ped Way].

As the weather, yesterday, was so nice, I walked to the Marquette Building to see more mosaic - by Tiffany.   The Marquette Building is at 140 So. Dearborn St in Chicago.

 It was double discount days for members of the AIC - so, I did some exhibit viewing, some shopping, and then -- I waited until sunset to take the elevator up to the terrace.   This is Bronze Bowl with Lace by Ursula von Rydingsvard.   It is spectacular at night - only a little drizzle!
 It lights up from the center and also has small lights on the ground to illuminate the cedar / bronze surface.
