Episode 125 – My own private Oregon

by Brenda Dayne on February 1, 2013


In this episode: A travel and teaching round up but, mostly, I have just missed talking with you.

Visiting one’s old home town as a tourist is bitter sweet. I’ve been hanging out in the West Hills, shopping at Stroheckers, walking at Council Crest, and shopping as if there is no tomorrow.

Oregon has funny place names.

Between the Folds, a documentary about origami, is one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time.

Ennui: I’ve been struggling. I busted out a Rikke Hat, with the slipped stitch mod. And then I lost the hat.

On the needles: Kalajoki (aka River Socks), in Artisan Yarns


Clearly, something needed to be done.

Fortunately, Cottage Grove Yarn Shop came to my rescue. Here’s what I bought: Amazing Colors Spinning Stripes; Debbie Macomber’s Petals sock yarn; and a single 50g ball of socks with which to darn my father’s Corgi socks.

My audible pick this week is Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief.

Music by Karine Polwart, I’m Gonna Do It All, from the cd Scribbled in Chalk.
