One Sleeve To Go

Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while. I couldn’t find my camera for the last few weeks. I eventually realized that maybe I left it on a bus. I took the bus back from the airport in Boston after a recent trip to Chicago for a plasma physics conference. I called the bus company yesterday, and found out I was right. They’ve had the camera behind the counter at the bus station all this time. Hooray for not losing the camera forever! Here are a few pictures of Chicago that I downloaded from the camera on the way home before forgetting it on the bus:

I saw ‘Cloudgate’ or ‘The Bean’, a sculpture by Anish Kapoor in Millenium Park, just a few blocks from my hotel. I’d seen pictures of the bean before, but I had no idea how big it was. You can easily walk under it. The vaulted, mirrored ‘ceiling’ is actually pretty high underneath. This picture is a composite of three exposures, each taken 2 stops apart.

The hotel was also close to the Wrigley building, which is indeed named for the chewing gum company.

I have finished up one sleeve on my orange Rogers-esque cardigan, but haven’t been to the bus station get to get the camera, so here is very low quality picture taken with the tiny built-in iSight camera in my laptop. Sleeves account for a much larger fraction of the surface area of a sweater than I’d thought about. I’ll mass the sleeves and other parts and report on the percentages accounted for by each part before I finish it up. I’ll also post better pics after blocking, seaming, and getting my Canon back:

What kind of buttons do you think would look best on this sweater?

    That’s pretty lucky about your camera being found. It’s always nice when things work out.

    I’d vote for some sort of large leather button. Might not be what you were thinking about at all, but it might look snazzy.
