fridaying.

...portland style. starts out dark-early (my early rising eastern time translates to very very early rising pacific time!) but then a fabulous sunrise.
more mad men before shopping at the adidas company store (one of francie's neighbors got us passes). stocking up on running and workout gear. the best part was not realizing there would be a 50% discount at the register!
lunch at st honore in NW portland.
more shopping. first twisted. they have a wonderful selection of yarns I haven't seen in person, plus a colorway of silk garden that was new-to-me, too. bought socks that rock silkie in a green on green colorway called jade to knit clapotis for francie (she must have that scarf for paris!), three balls of the silk garden for another knit round scarf (that makes four of them - yes, I'm creating a whole wardrobe from that pattern!) and louet merlin in eggplant to knit this (they had a shop sample on display and I tried it on - too cute!)

and then ink+peat. the store absolutely lived up to the photos I'd seen before. and it was so cool to meet pam!
an unsuccessful attempt to find mad men series one on dvd.

and finally, a lovely dinner on the patio.
