Arty Knitting at the Ford Building

A couple of weeks ago I went down to the Ford Building to visit my super talented friend David Lewin at his new studio digs for his company Janitor. The amazing custom suit clothier Duchess is also in the building.
Also on the first floor is an art exhibit space with these very imaginative knitted creations:

Who would have thought to combine taxidermy and knitting?!?!?

Coming out of the fog of illness... again!

I have been sick off and on since Thanksgiving... which puts a serious damper on productivity and creativity. My darling son gifted me with some other cold/flu bug that lasted from New Years until last week. The spouse (who also got in on the gift) is still recovering.
So consequently, Christmas decorations are still up. Here are a few images from Christmas in Portland this year.

Peacock Lane... an amazing tradition here in Portland.
