I live in Springfield, it's about 2 hours from Bend but my daughter and her family are moving to Bend soon. It's nice to have a knitter in the same state since you are the first person I've seen here from Oregon.
My daughter really likes it in Bend too. She also had lived there afew years back and moved back in Dec of 07. I've visited her 4 times this year. It definitely changed. The new parkway confuses me. Guess I'm showing my age.
I'm Knittingmary at Ravelry
If I live to be 200 I will never get all those patterns that I have knitted!
just North of you in Madras. Must confess I have crocheted since I was 9, but was unsuccessful knitting until now and I'm 43. My Gramma is beaming from heaven I'm sure, but she probably won't be a complete success because I refuse to tat. So a newbie at knitting but super familiar with yarns and crochet even with beads.
