What I Did over Christmas Vacation

Lynne Kiesling

Woman does not live by economics alone (although sometimes I come pretty close!). I made this sweater:


This is the popular Rogue hoodie, which lots of folks have been knitting over the past two years. I started this in October, and finished it on New Year’s Day.

Yes, it was a lot of work, and for you economist non-knitters, this is a good pattern to illustrate the extent to which knitting truly is a mathematics hobby. Lots of axial and radial symmetry, and spatial logic.

Plus it’s beautiful and comfortable!

Note the gorgeous Victorian buildings in the background; this is Armitage Avenue, one of the nicest streets in Chicago for strolling, boutique shopping, café-ing, etc.

Just to make sure it’s clear that we are in my fabulous hometown!

  1. Lynne — it’s gorgeous!! Great work. I love the detail on the side, neck and hood. 🙂

  2. No time for some arty shots at Chicago Avenue? (for readers outside Chicago, the station is built on an S-curve with all sorts of possibilities for lighting angles.)

    Good work on the hoodie.

  3. As the taker of these particular shots of le hoodie, let me say that they don’t do it justice. It rocks, as of course does its lovely model.

  4. Thank you all for your lovely comments! Stephen, we were on the southbound platform, which doesn’t lend itself quite so much to arty light shots. And our train was coming.
