We stayed at the RedStone Inn Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights.  What a charming B&B, victorian charming and quaint.  This was the office season so we had it all to ourself.  The owner was wonderful, accommodating, great conversationalist and a pleasure all around.

Although Dubuque may not be everyone’s cup of tea we found much to do!  The Mississippi River Boat Museum and Aquarium, 3 thrift stores, a quilt shop and a local yarn store!  The yarn store, Yarn Soup was refreshing.

It was the peferct size for Dubuque and carried a few yarns I had not heard of…so I had to bring it home:).  Introducing Vice on the Paradigm Base..I am seeing a crochet shawl in my future.

I also picked us some two Skeins of Cascade Paints @45% off as I wanted to make something in fall like colors.

I then grabbed to chocolate Alpaca blends

Small bottle of Euclan-I have only used soak and I am not very impressed.  The Jasmine smells sooooo good!

Locking stitch marks

Gauage O knit.

I am a sucker for tools!

By the time we left the yarn shop the quilt store was closed…we said to each other…Next time for sure!

Merry Craftmas!

Toodles!
