I know this isn't knitting specific, but I thought people in Iowa would appreciate a heads up. There's an Ashford Traditional spinning wheel with accessories at Houseworks in Iowa City, I'm thinking the tag on it said 200 bucks. Looks to be in excellent condition.

Ok, so hubby is driving to his job in DSM every day and because there is nothing here in Ottumwa (especially my favorite coffee shop, which is in DSM) he said I should come up with him and spend a day. Ok, I can live with sitting in Caribou all day (he says the one in clive is on his way)
Anyone want to spend some, part, or all the day with me? I will be without the car, it will be at his job, but public transportation doesnt bother this displaced Chicagoan) I was thinking sometime after the 24th (spring break is next week, i should stay home since we also are expecting out of town company)

Ok, so put away the winter knitting for 4 days... We are supposed to have highs in the 68-70 range for the next three days, then a drop back to the 50s and 40s...

I know the store in Roosevelt Shopping Center closed. Is there anywhere else to get "better" yarns around here? Specifically, I'm looking for Rowan Calmer to make Twinkletoes, and it seems silly to pay shipping for a single skein. My sister is in Waverly, and I have a good friend in Ames, as well, if there's somewhere that would carry it in either of those places.

EDIT: I just called Purls (which, for some reason, I thought had closed, as well), and they do have it. Just for future reference, however, are there any other stores in the area?

Ok, so I am in Ottumwa, and we have ice rain at the moment ( lunch hour , Tuesday )
So as I put on a pot roast, knit on Insanity Norwegian, I am anticipating no school for the kids tomorrow, which means they will be here, so sometime, between rows of diamonds and skulls, Im gonna make death by chocolate cookies.
