Our family went to Portland to celebrate my in-law’s 50th anniversary, it was a blissful 3 days. Why is it so hard to get my brain and sleep back in sync traveling west to east? I’m still a little blurry, but here’s a quickie recap.
We drank, we ate, I bought books at Powell’s, we stayed at the Kennedy School , I even spun at the Japanese Garden.
I squeezed in a trip to Twisted! A super fast the-husband-and-kids-are-in-the-car-outside trip.
Mer helped me pick out some Knitted Wit yarn for a little fair isle. I saw Quince yarns in the wild. I visited a wall of Blue Moon Fiber Arts and petted a whole bunch of fibers from new to me dyers. I wish this store was in my neighborhood!
But what did I buy?
Fiber from Knitted Wit and Wonderland Dyeworks, Knitted Wit Rambouillete yarn, Hazel Yarn sock, Swans Island fingering weight yarn, Socks That Rock – I didn’t have time to meet up with Tina, so I worshiped her yarn instead. And some Madeline Tosh Unicorn Tails for stitching.
I’ve been home a couple of days and am already trying to figure out how soon I can get back to Portland.
Now for another cup of coffee!
