The yarn is from a stupendous store in Portland called Dublin Bay. I had no room in my bag so didn't buy all I wanted. The blue is Fleece Artist "Suri Blue" 50/50 alpaca/ BFL. 600m, 100g. The other 2 are HandMaiden Angel Hair. 70/30 mohair/nylon. 400m/50g. also obtained a cone of cotton blend at Yarntopia in Portland, some Tiur at Canvasworks in Olympia and 2 Japanese stitch dictionaries at the Japanese bookstore in Seattle. Finished 3 sock cuffs and 1 spindled 220 yard skein of laceweight Falkland. Not used to the spindle anymore, very hard on my hands. The rest will be done on the wheel and hopefully come out similar.
This was the first time I'd been out there when the rhododendrons peaked. Everywhere giant pink puffballs. Not much else in the way of flowers where I was staying but did walk by a few nice gardens in Olympia. A few poppies waited for me at home. They'll be gone with the 100 degree heat we're expecting.
