Reminder: My Sister's Knits Public Shoot on October 26

Thank you so much to the forty knitters who sat for the project at Yarn Con on October 13. The total count is now 198...two portraits shy of twenty percent complete.

The event was a delight; notes and photographs are here. I owe a debt of gratitude to organizers Sarah and Natalia (who have now both worked on the scarf) for inviting me to be a part of the action.

If you haven't yet taken part, remember that another public shoot (and probably the final Chicago-area shoot until after the start of the new year) will be happening on Friday, October 26 at My Sister's Knits from 5–8 p.m. See you there!

Public Shoots: 13 and 26 October

I'm pleased as punch to announce not one but two more public shoots. I simply can't get enough.

October 13: Yarn Con Chicago

I'm delighted to have been asked to participate in Yarn Con, a gathering in Pulaski Park for yarn and those who love it. There will be workshops, demonstrations, and of course a vendor's market. The vendor list is interesting; it seems that this will be a chance for a lot of smaller and/or local producers and retailers to get their stuff out there.

For more information about the event, you can visit the Yarn Con Web site.

October 26: My Sister's Knits, Chicago

And then I'll be spending a very cozy Friday evening on October 26 from 5–8 p.m. at My Sister's Knits on the South Side. I'm a north sider, so this will be a great adventure for me. (I consider Hyde Park to be downstate.)These aren't all the shoots in the works, just the two confirmed. I'm hoping take advantage of several offers to travel outside the borders of Illinois soon.
