It was a dark and stormy day........

On Friday, we took off for OFF. (Oregon flock and fiber). We took our time getting down there, stopping at Twisted in Portland (awesome yarn store if you're ever there), and fabric depot (also in Portland).

Fabric depot is a HUGE fabric store, like, if they don't have it, you don't need it kinda huge. I didn't succumb, I mean, buy anything......this time.

After the depot, we went off to our hotel, only to find the weather report had declined into "crazed weatherman, sky is falling" mode. Seems there was a bit of a typhoon, left over from hitting japan, coming right towards OUR fiber festival. Being the hardy northwesterners we are (and not minding a bit of wet wool), we decided to go the next day and make the best of it.

Well, it WAS windy and rainy, and some of the vendors gave up before they started, but the tents outside were dry and there were plenty of inside folks and critters to look at.

I only came home with one thing......It's a miss babs "kit" to make leftie, a cute little project I've been wanting to do for a while.....

I won't start on it right away (Christmas knitting, ya know), but it's nice to know it will be there when I'm ready.
We also made some new friends.....
Pam's new bestie, mr poofy pants

These guys wanted to come home with us, they really did.
We were good, though, and left the critters where they belonged, although I think I want a Siamese angora bunny, just sayin'.
We managed to get out of there before the weather got REALLY bad, and a good time was had by all.
What more could you ask for?
Next week....more blankie and some Christmas knitting....wahoo!!
