Portland_dayWe – and a 20 foot truck stuffed with our belongings – arrived in Portland yesterday. We drove carefully, taking two days to drive from San Francisco to Portland.

Today I will do a maintenance check on my loom and wheel and figure out where my yarn stash is going to go.

Portland_nightOnce everything is in its place, then I can start exploring yarn stores and (hopefully) connecting with  local fiber artists and crafters!

MultnomahThor and I want to visit the Multnomah Falls along the Historic Columbia River Highway.  (I lived in Oregon for seven years and my daughter lived in Portland for a while, but I never saw these falls.)

Any fiber artists in the Portland area?!
