big blog break

Whoah, I haven’t posted for a long time! I’ve been alternately sick and busy (or busy being sick?). Peter arrived at midnight on Wednesday, Carolyn came Thursday/Thanksgiving late morning, and it’s been all go since then. It was really great to meet Carolyn, and we had a lot of fun running around and exploring Portland. We seemed to spend a lot of time (and money) at REI. Here are Peter and Carolyn changing into their new threads in the REI parking garage:

In addition to shopping and eating constantly, we were able to pull off a little knitblogger gathering at a great little cafe/dessert shop called Pix Patisserie. Here we are trying not to freeze to death:

That’s Melanie and her daughter Eleanor (and yes, her sweater is incredible), Melissa wearing her cute Rowan sweater vest that you can’t see, me, and Carolyn. Thanks to Melanie’s husband for being the photographer!

    Mariko,
    Did I miss it when you told us more about these “marshmallows filled with green tea goo,” mentioned in your sidebar? Sounds yummy and weird.

    mmm, Pix. We took the in-laws there on Saturday. I had the menage a trois. I thought the crust was a bit too tough but delicious!
