T minus 8 days ’til Portland, Oregon

How can one town have so many shops for a knitter? Wow. Charlottesville has three.

The Button Emporium

Knit Purl

Powell’s City of Books (Hint: The craft section is on the first floor near the corner of NW 11th and Couch. If you go in that entrance, down the stairs and turn left, you’re right in the thick of all the craft stuff. 🙂

Urban Fiber Arts

Dublin Bay Knitting Company

Twisted

Also, how did I not know that Knitmap exhisted? Years ago while in Paris, my mom and I searched the phone books for laine (french for wool) and that’s how we found a bunch of places. Now, it just gets easier and easier with the internet, but I kind of miss the days of searching because when you actually found a place, it was so satisfying.

Oh, and this is what I will be doing by day while in Portland…http://corp.collegenet.com/2011UserConference/sessions.html

Bring it on, IT people.
