Crawling for yarn

Yesterday a flock of knitters from the rainy north descended to Portland to partake of the riches our yarn shops contain. A number of us from the PDX Knitbloggers acted as guides for the group who arrived by Amtrak and visited Knit/Purl, Knit Knot Studio, and Dublin Bay. Bobbie, Melissa, Judy, and others met them at Union Station and maps in hand the Seattle knitters spread out over the Pearl District with visions of yarn and Powell's Books in their heads. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so I have no pictures. The others haven't posted yet but trust me there are some great shots.

I didn't intend on purchasing any yarn as I have more than enough. But one never knows what you'll find when you just poke around. I certainly didn't expect to find this.

It made my day. So happy!

sorry I couldn't have been there, I was really looking forward to seeing everyone. :( But on the positive side, you have received an award, visit my blog for details! :)

You're so lucky that I didn't look at the books in Dublin Bay, since I was there before you. :-)

Tried to find your email but either I'm blind or drunk. Or both :)

If you would like some of that roving that is currently hanging from my shower rail, drop me a line at teh dot bunnei at gmail dot com.

The dot and the at should be replaced with the obvious, the misspellings are actually correct. I'm just like that.

Ha, I was thinking of you last night, Duffy, Mister and I were playing Scrabble and I had the Q forever, with no U of course. I kept thinking, qat, qat, like Fiberqat. I had to eat the Q eventually.

I've awarded you the You Make My Day Award, details at my blog, have a great day.

No way Sharon, I awarded Duffy. She can only make one person's day, hahaha.
