In past years I went by myself but this year I was with the PDX Knitbloggers. A rendezvous camp was set up on the green outside the main exhibition hall and near the spinners circle so while you were out checking vendors and animals you had a place to stash your things to be watched over. It was nice to have a place to go to knit and rest and chat with friends (not to mention share finds) then leave your purchases while you went to check out other vendors.
I was also there to receive the Kidnapped Can Opener. It was good that I was with a group because after a half hour had passed from our rendezvous time I was itching to go. I had a wheel to swap and vendors to peruse. While I was gone the KCO arrived and endured the photo taking of my fellow bloggers until I arrived to take it on its own journey of OFFF.
