It is one of the cutest towns ever. After spending the afternoon hanging out at her house and shopping at The Wool Pack, I attended her guild meeting. I was able to present my book to knitters who had helped me with some of the pieces from Closely Knit.
I also got to meet Ellen, who started Ellie's Reclaimed Cashmere. She finds "abandoned" cashmere sweaters and recycles the yarn. If you are in Portland, Anna carries it at Knitwit. Ellen is sending me some to play with, I will write about it once it arrives!
