For many people, Chicago is known as the “Windy City. But, because we visit in the fall every year, to the Yarn Doodler it brings a feeling of Christmas, holiday shopping, seasonal urban flower beds, brisk strolls, rumbling loop sounds, coffee break refuge, museums and the wonders of Michigan Avenue.
You can look high and low and make new discoveries every time you visit this thriving town.
So, while in Chicago recently, I knew I must absolutely give a yarn doodle gift to this vital, vivacious city. In my pounding the pavement research for the optimum place I came to the perfect location in a cozy park with bustling activity near the historic water tower, built in 1869 and survivor of the great Chicago fire of 1871.
There are lovely boxwood shrubs outlining the paths and walkways and Merry Christmas Chicago is now nesting among them. Hopefully an occasional passerby will glance downward to spy my little heartfelt holiday gift to this high energy place in the Windy City.
