Chicago Memories

I really enjoyed getting to walk around a tiny bit of Chicago while I was visiting for Vogue Knitting Live a few weeks ago. It seemed that every surface was embellished with some sweet detail, and the city felt like a very unique and special place. Here are a few of my favourite Chicago memories.

If you're ever in Chicago, I recommend visiting the Art Institute and taking a slow stroll around the city so as not to miss the wonderful little details everywhere!
