More From Portland....

There was a fashion show after the dinner on Saturday night in Portland but since I forgot to take my camera I've had to rely on Pirk to share some of her photos....she took tons of photos! The following ones are hers....

This was absolutely gorgeous in person! A one-sleeved shawl, so lightweight and flowy....I just loved it. Done is very light gray and cream. Very elegant.

This was one of my favorites, done by a woman named Beth (sorry I don't know her last name) know I love the color!

And speaking of "that" color!! This freeform sweater was made by Margaret Hubert and was another of my favorites.

Last here is a gorgeous freeform shawl done by Bonnie Pierce....

Margaret Hubert was kind enough to let me copy this photo from her blog....I'm in the bottom right corner! And that's Pirk in the green tee shirt snapping photos!!

I also got to meet Drew Emborsky, The Crochet Dude and here's proof!

And speaking of Drew, he lives in Houston!! Crazy Aunt Purl mentioned on her blog that he is without electricity right now as are so many others. I wasn't even aware of what Ike was doing because Pirk and I didn't turn on the TV except one morning to get the local weather.

I think that's just about all I'm going to post about my trip to Portland. The rest of my photos are on my flickr page if you're interested.


  1. Oh this is so cool Janet. Way to go!
    Yes, the purple knits are the best.
    You know, purple is fall's IT colour this year. Paired with charcoal and metallics.
    Fall never looked so good! Glad you enjoyed yourself.

  3. I am still cracking up over your glowing boob! You must've had fun!!!!

  4. You're back! And you met CAP's Drew - how cool is that! Looks like you had a great trip - well, except for that whole glowing boob thing ;) Thanks for the laugh!

  5. What a great time you had and it looks like you met a lot of
    Fun and wonderful people.

    I love the colors of the sweater and colorful shawl.

    If I did free crocheting, it would look like a tangled web.


  6. The shawls are beautiful. I wish I had been the Beth that made that purple one cause I would be wearing it all the time! All the pictures were great. I am so glad you had such a fun time! Is it cooling down there now?

  11. How fun to see a fashion show and view all the various knitted wonders people create. I don't knit but I sure do appreciate the work that goes in to it. I can just see your eyes light up over that purple one!
