Come ride the little train that is rolling down the tracks.
To the junction.....(Cmon, sing it) PETTICOAT JUNCTION!
Today's guest bloggers are Heidi with her incredible fairisle sweater and her current knitting, a lovely cabled hat AND
Clarina our train sterward who is a knitter. I rode the train from Chicago to St Paul Minnesota to visit my sister for the weekend. My own knitting for the trip is a new blanket. You know I'll bre showing it to you soon on the blog. Clarina is holding it in its infancy.
I was going on a trip and this is what I saw:
21 Eagles perched on naked trees on the Mississippi River
The backs of doggy day cares, with happy dogs playing in the snow.
Beautiful barns and beautiful farmhouses.
Homes within a few yards of the tracks, and in their homes, after dark I saw: lots of mounted deer heads
Deer running in a line down a snowy path they made on farmland
Church steeples, lovely and rural
Couples hugging before boarding
Hunters dressed in oranges with black dogs in the snow
the faces of people waiting in their cars, for our train to move on.
Great trip knitting. I'll do it again. Have you knitted on a train?
