Just before we got to the Brooking's exit, The Hub decided that we might as well go on to Sioux Falls, since it was only 50 more miles. Sioux Falls boasts not only a Lowe's, but also a Home Depot (plus Sam's Club, and of course, *Schmenards*). Sioux Falls also boasts a Granite City, which justifiably boasts about its prosciutto olive flatbread pizza, which was even better than it looks in the photo.
Unfortunately for The Hub, he didn't find the info he needed, but we ate a good lunch, stocked up at Sam's and headed back home in some of the worst wind I've seen in a long time. The flooded fields had whitecaps and waves.
Forest Canopy Shawl, worked with the handspun Romney that Voracious Reader and I dyed with marigolds over the summer. I started with the most pale yellow hank, and I'll work my way through the darker shades, though since I'm knitting this on size 8 needles, I suspect I won't get to the darkest yarn before I finish the shawl, even though I intend to make it larger than the pattern calls for.
P.S. It's not that The Hub dislikes *Schmenards*- I think he was mostly in the mood for a road trip
P.S.S. I ate the leftovers for lunch today, and the pizza was just as good reheated.
