Good day. The past week/weekend was fun filled and packed full of knitting. First, I went a visited a dear friend in Chicago this past week. My son and I took a 3 day vacation and went to the aquarium, had a Chicago style pizza, Chicago style hot dog and tons of fun. Thank you Suzie for making this visit possible. Nolan and I were in heaven. Here are some photos, okay a lot of photos....

Here is Suzie and Nolan. We are just about to get our first real Chicago style hot dog.
It was delicious!! Here is Nolan at the Shedd aquarium. He was such a good boy and was so happy to see all the different fish.

While I was in Chicago, I wanted to see a few knitting stores. Well, that did not work out quite as I expected. First, I as able to see one store, Knot Just Knits. The store was adorable.

I purchased some sock yarn for a friend. She will love it!

However, my little tike was not in such a good mood and threw the worst fit in the store. That ended the first day of checking out the knitting stores. Since the next day was my last, we really needed to hit the road, I decided to only check out one more store. The store was Knitche in Downer Grove, IL. Downer Grove has the cutest downtown. It was a relaxing to walk around. However,  when we found the place, we realized the Knitche has recently relocated. 
They were closed until July. Oh well. I guess we just have to come back another day. Maybe for Vogue Knitting in the fall?!?!? On the way back to the car I spotted a cute store.

I got a couple of cute beads to make stitch markers. Once they are done I will post pictures :)

Once we got back from Chicago, the weekend was starting in full swing. It was my husband's birthday and we decided to go to a Brewer game. It was a great time with family and friends!!! I love brewer games. We tailgated for hours and just relaxed and chatted. It was a awesome.

Well, what have I been knitting.... I finished my two at a time socks. I love them. They yarn is beautiful.
 I also started another couple of pairs of socks... The badger socks are now just a plain sock and the stripping looks great. Here is a pair I started last weekend. The first sock is complete.

 The color is hard to see but they are blue, green and purple. I think I have found my calling. I love knitting socks. All of you out there reading my blog, what did you do this weekend? I hope it was fun filled. Until next time, Keep Knitting.
