Well...I'm a new member here, but not new to knitting on the Amtrak
train to Portland! One of my daughters lives there (now in Gresham)
and my favorite thing to do is to go down and back by train, and knit
the whole way. My birthday is in January and I told my daughters that
what I want for my birthday is to go to Portland on the train so I can
sit and knit for hours. And that's what I'm doing! For Christmas my
husband gave me 2 round trip tickets to Portland and back, for what he
calls a "knitting break".
You girls all have a good time!! I'll have a great time when I do it
by myself next week.
May your bobbin always be full
Well, it looks like everyone had a good time! I hope you do when you head down too!
Here is where people are writing about the Portland Yarn Crawl:
You'll see from the posts on the blogs, we have a very diverse group of people!!
