Train Departed: 7:34 (2 minutes late!)
Train Arrived: 8:36 (due 8:26 – 10 minutes late!)
Notable Train Events: Knitting!
Knitting: Voyager Lace Stole – another respectable 11 rows of my pattern!
I’m not entirely sure about what happened today.
For the first 6 or so stations, the train was much less crowded than usual. So much so I thought perhaps it was a public holiday or something that I had forgotten! But after the first 6 stations – it got more crowded than usual…go figure.
Listening today to Iris Dement. *sigh* I love her oldfashioned-ness.
Anyway I managed a very respectable amount of knitting due to the lateness of the train, and I actually spied another knitter further down the carriage. As hard as I tried, I couldn’t spot what she was knitting. Bummer. But I am enthused that train-knitters are seemingly growing in numbers. I’ve spotted a few in the past few weeks!
I have a great dream for a special craft carriage where knitters and needleworkers can craft in peace 😉 Ha ha ha!
Once I finish my Christmas knitting, I plan during the summer months to knit hats and scarves for the homeless. I’m also going to enlist the help of my work colleagues (some of them I have to teach to knit – but it’s ok – anyone can knit a scarf!!!) The kids will help too!
This should keep my knitty hands busy during the summer months!
