    No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just had one.
    -Elbert Hubbard

    Re-entry is tough! Here's the brief version of my vacation, in some photos.

    We did, in fact, go to Madison, Wisconsin, for those of you who wondered. We went from the state capitol to the outlying farms. And everywhere we went, there was yarn. Yarn at a sheep shearing. Yarn in yarn shops. And even yarn in the University of Wisconsin Bookstore. Imagine if I'd been able to buy yarn with my textbooks!

    We went to a Norwegian town full of trolls. There were also sweaters, but this photo is for my accordian-playing dad.

    And speaking of family . . . Happy Birthday, Mom!

    Photos of actual knitting - and there was much - to follow. Not to mention the yarn acquisition . . .

    glad you had a fun trip - I love Madison. And Lakeside Fibers is great. (And they carry my patterns...) Hard to get back to work, I know.

    That is my kind of University ;-)

    Happy Birthday, Mrs. R.!

    Wow, yarn at the bookstore would have been awesome. We had "send home" where you could have the bill sent to your account (and then on to your parents) - imagine the damage I could have done buying "textbooks!"
    Happy Birthday to your momma!

    There IS a little bit of yarn in the Brown Bookstore now -- mostly just kits, but still, knitting! In the bookstore!

    Glad you had such a fun and yarn-filled trip. We'll look forward to the full stash report!

    Many Happy Returns, Mrs. R! T, my birthday gift to your mom is to spare her some agitation and tell you to call the church already to set up the wedding :)

    I love the yarn in a bookstore concept! That acordion guy is too cute!

    I'm very surprised by the yarn in the university bookstore. I wonder if they offer knitting for credit? Wouldn't that be fun! The university my daughter attended offered fly fishing as a physical education course.

    I'm from Wisconsin and it was still cool to see these photos. I clearly grew up in a much less interesting part of Wisconsin!

    What a fun-looking trip! I think I've seen some knitting kits in the Brown bookstore too.

    By the way, did you see the chuppah pattern in the summer issue preview of Interweave Knits?

    What a fun trip, even if there are no socks! Wow knitting your own chuppah, what an undertaking. I think it's great.

    Yarn in the bookstore, I'm all over that.

    There is yarn in the bookstore. Unfortunately (as we found when one of my TA coordinatees went there to procure supplies) the only needles are plastic! However, we got her hooked then took her to lakeside fibers for better quality supplies and she is officially a yarnaholic now.
