Area yarn shop.......yea!
Fort Dodge once again has a yarn shop........yea! It is in the same place as Wild Abandonment was but is named The Yarn Basket (that's the name I had for my in-home shop back in the 80's). The lady that owns the shop also owns one in Carroll, about 55 miles southwest of Fort Dodge. Her sister-in-law had the previous shop, but relocated to Colorado. I plan a visit in the near future, so will have more on what is available.
Knitting is coming along.....I should be able to start the heel on my second Monkey sock tonight....want to finish it by month's end. Then I'll have to decide on which UFO I'll complete....probably just the purse that I need to kitchener stitch the i-cord handle and then felt it.....that won't take too long.
