I'll post more later, but we just got back from a wedding outside of Madison, WI - flew from Providence, RI to Chicago and then the "lady in the car" (aka Magellen and I SO need one of these!) took us up to Madison, Cross Plains and Mt. Horeb.
One of my favorite places that I visited was http://www.knittingtree.com/ in Madison - what a terrific little store. Funniest thing was meeting a woman in there who was working a new bright red dishcloth who had moved out there from Arlington, MA.
I'll post more later... have to figure out what to knit at SnB tonight!
