Lorna's Laces Celebrates Chicago.

...with nine new colorways, each named for an iconic Chicago landmark. Lorna's Laces blogged about the new colorways (three posts - here, here and here), sharing photos that inspired the colors, and finished projects in different bases. We have all nine colorways in both Shepherd Sock (the "big" 435 yard skeins) and Shepherd Worsted. (and really good news, the prices didn't go up this year!) These are both superwash wools and work great for a variety of projects - socks, shawls, sweaters, accessories and afghans. (pictured at left, top to bottom - Buckingham Fountain, The Bean, Navy Pier, Grant Park, The Skyway and The L)

I love the yellow, pink and blue colorways (Magnificent Mile, Lincoln Park Zoo, The Outer Loop) for baby projects. A sweater, or a blanket, perhaps?

But the one I couldn't resist was The L (it's the bottom skein in the first photo above). If you've ever ridden that elevated train, trust me, this yarn is the prettiest thing ever to come from it!

Amy Christoffers of Savory Knitting used it for a sweater.

I'm going to use it for Damson.
