Chicago! We are in you!

We arrived in Schaumberg on Monday afternoon after a short three and a half hour drive, which was kind of nice for a change. We had a leisurely breakfast, then packed and got on the road.

We spent Monday afternoon just hanging out in the hotel. I think the girls went for a swim, and I washed diapers and read. Tuesday we had a few errands to run; we needed to make a bank deposit and replenish our food for lunches and snacks. We took care of that in the morning and stayed in for the afternoon while some thunderstorms rolled through. The wi-fi went out briefly a couple times, but other than that it was not a big deal.

Today was set up for us at the Schaumberg Convention Center for Stitches Midwest 2011. We headed over about 9:00 am and were done by lunch time. Want to see?

Getting set up

Here’s what it looked like while we were still unpacking. Getting set up

I planned to take a picture of us unloading the trailer and moving stuff in, but I forgot until we got this far along. Oops!

Knitting Notions yarn and shawls

Here we are all finished. This is the left side of the booth.

Here’s another view from near the center front.

Here’s from the right corner. I think it’s a pretty nice set up.

baby slept through the setup

Yes, he did sleep about an hour like that. We had no where to lay him down so we went out and got the car seat and it actually worked. He woke up right after this when we were leaving.

I have not been doing much knitting during my down time this week. I have been in more of a reading mood so I have almost finished Crush and am half way through The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo audiobook. Actually I think I will get out my iPod and listen to that while I go check on my laundry.

Bye for now!

  1. I just read Dragon Tattoo a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. It’s grim but fascinating. I enjoyed The Girl Who Played with Fire even more! It’s fascinating how people interact and judge a woman with a disability in these books.
