Weather in Portland

It's PISSING RAIN and I have a shawl for finish for a client, and a hat to knit for a new beau. Life is good.


a shawl for a client? are you saying that you knit professionally?

I do finishing, repair and tailoring on knit garments.

a new beau? are you saying that some lucky guy caught you?

I did the catching...I had to go across the country to do it, but he's got a job in the PNW so he'll be closer by now...

Rain? Are you saying it's raining? ;-)

I couldn't resist, trends have to run their full course.

Raining here as well! Is it raining all over the US? Ridiculous hard rain here in the FingerLakes.

Not here. Not right now. In fact we've got smog today. It's a "spare the air" day in the Bay Area. If you go to you can see exactly how smoggy it is. It's a web cam in the Berkeley hills looking west from the Lawrence Hall of Science on the UC campus.

No rain here, but we had quite a lot of snow yesterday and today it's ca -20 Celsius (-4 Fahrenheit). It's a good thing I'm a wool junkie!

Look forward to seeing photos of your projects!

Raining in Portland? Are you saying it rains in Portland in Dec? : ) Been there. We had 8" of snow here in Walla Walla, but last nights wind and rain washed that all away. After over a week of slipping and sliding, it's good to feel pavement under our feet and vehicles again.

Congrats on the new beau!
