Upcoming craft events in Chicago

There are two events coming up that knitters and crafters in Chicago may want to check out.

The first is the Renegade Craft Fair on September 15 & 16 on Division Street.

The second is Yarncon, which is being held on October 13 at Pulaski Park Fieldhouse.

I'll probably be going to both. Anyone else going?
