Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival knitting Oregon

Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival – Day One

It has been a great first day of the Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival!  This morning I picked up my good friend, fellow designer M.E. Greene, Olive Knits, and we road tripped it to The Dalles, Oregon.  This is just a quick post to let you in on the fun, and then I’ll post a full report sometime later.  I hope you’ll enjoy this peek at this wonderful event!

Here is the beautiful venue as we arrived:

Right away we found a place to knit.  This is Marie working on her newest design:

The fabulous Marketplace, which I can’t wait to explore more tomorrow:

Lovely grounds:


And finally, a Burgerville for dinner.  I was thrilled when we drove into town and saw this. Burgerville, a Northwest classic!

Sweet potato fries.  Perfection!

Tomorrow, two classes with Norah Gaughan, shopping in the Marketplace, a banquet featuring Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, and time to visit with new and old friends!

In this blog, you will find not only an exploration of all that is good in our knitterly lives, but also a variety of posts tying together my passions for writing, photography, and my home state of Oregon.
