...that there's a new yarn shop in downtown Iowa City? It's called Home Ec Workshop (website not up yet), and carries yarn and fabric, and also serves coffee, muffins, cookies, and other yummies. It's got a nice little sitting area as well as a classroom equipped with sewing machines. I was there last Saturday morning, and although their target audience is definitely college students (downtown Iowa City is right next to campus), I felt very welcome there. I'll definitely be back!
They carry a nice selection of yarn, including some not carried by the other two LYSes in town. I was thrilled to see a variety Lorna's Laces -- not just Shepherd Sock, although that is what I bought. Oh, and a couple skeins of Malabrigo Worsted.
That's 2 skeins of LLSS in Douglas Fir and 2 skeins of Malabrigo Kettled-Dyed Worsted in Cactus Flower.
Speaking of yarn, I finally got the extra skein of RPM Pink Lamb's Pride yesterday, and finished the second Very Cabley Mitten. They're going for a little Soak right now -- pictures to come.
And finally -- Sissy, be watching your mail!
