welcome to portland

This was the view from my desk yesterday:

rainy day portland.JPG
It POURED. I found out later that it was the rainiest day on record or something, so that made me feel a bit better.
I made it out to Kinokuniya with my mother, so I will be reporting on a couple of book acquisitions soon. I am still completely unorganized and not unpacked, and I haven’t knit a thing in WEEKS. Oy!

    We had rain like the world was coming to an end late last night and then again this evening. There was a huge thunder and lightning storm complete with hail. Not at all typical not matter what people like to say about the PNWet.

    It’s rainy here too at the moment. Today I made some wristbands from wool. I’m going to sell them and donate the cash to my local school.

    Welcome home! I can’t wait to see pictures of the new house. If Billy ever manages to get me to leave Brooklyn, it will be to move to Portland.

    ahh portland. a great city! i am just north of you up in seattle. we got some crazy rain and thunder yesterday up here too.
    so i just thought i would let you know that after reading amy’s blog (knitting sushi) and your blog, i had to go to the kinokuniya store here in seattle. oh man. my friend and i poured over the books forever. unfortunately, i didn’t buy a thing because i was afraid that even with the illustrated instructions i wouldn’t be able to figure it out. i stared at the crocheted animal books forever. there was the cutest chihuahua. anyhoo, i’ll keep going back, even if it is only to browse! the books themselves are so beautifully designed.
    say hi to coffee people for me, i love that place! 🙂

    Welcome to your new home!

    I too love rain … now that I’m retired, and need not go out in it … but, we really do need some, here in SoCal, to chase away those bloomin’ fires.
    Each time I return to L.A. from places to the north, I’m struck by our olive-drab trees versus their green trees … but hey, SoCal’s hot weather is the reason I left London, and you can’t have everything.
    Is your house like your neighbours? Beautiful.
    God bless,Christine

    BTW is that a two-person (or two-shoulder) back-scratcher, on the window ledge?? intriguing (sp??)
    God bless, Christine

    What a pretty view, despite the rain!

  16. Marg says:

    Glad to see you got moved in ok. The boxes can wait (some of mine are still). Love the view! Send some of that rain east, would ya?

  17. Welcome to Portland! I was born and raised there and lived there the first 27 years of my life before moving to Montana. I MISS Portland so much, so I’m jealous. I love the view out of your front window and I’m going to guess that’s the southeast side OR Sellwood area. I am right?
    Also – when you get settled and need to visit and VERY COOL YARN SHOP – go to The Yarn Garden in southeast Portland. I visited there this summer and LOVED it. Keep us posted on your new discoveries as you explore your new digs.

    Welcome to Portland! I moved here a few months ago and just love it. The yarn garden is the best yarn store round. It’s enormous!

    Ooh, Portland as in Portland Oregon? Puddletown? There is the most fabulous place you have to visit! I discovered Posie on line, living here in England, but have had some wonderful bits from her, and wish I could visit in person. Here is the link should you wish to peruse vintage gorgeousness! She does some boutonierres that would look wonderful with that green dress….www.rosielittlethings.com
    love Mimi x
