filling in the blanks

We got back very late yesterday night and I'm slowly sifting through all my pictures and my loot. I am still on a Sock Summit high :)

Here are the pictures that I wanted to include with Friday's post.

Crazy line up for the marketplace Fri morning:

That's a lot of people wanting to buy yarn!!!

The famous Powell's bookstore:

I bought 9 paperbacks - 4 for hubby and 5 for myself.

Skidmore fountain in downtown Portland:

In the background, you can see a group of cyclists taking a Portland tour.

And this is what the ballroom looked like just before we started the world record attempt:

I still can't believe that I was really there.

I finally tracked down Gladys and got her picture with her Sock Museum socks.

My brain is mush so you'll excuse me if I can't string together more than one or two sentences today.
