The name of this blog was inspired by the tremendous amount of formative knitting and sewing experiences that have occurred for me on the banks of Lake Michigan. The shores of this great lake were where I found both my craft and myself many times over. I can think of very few things I love better than looking out at the water with a cup of coffee in my hand and a project in my lap, so when Nick and I found this coop unit right on the beach in the northern part of Chicago I knew it was the place I wanted to live.
Though the snow was coming down hard and fast last week, I was still eager to get out to the water. I grabbed my newly finished Star Mittens (though the many loose ends were still…well…loose) and our new camera and walked out the front door.
I still can’t believe I get to live this close to the water!
