Back on Track

My recent 6 hours and 50 minutes on Amtrak produced more knitting than I’ve been able to accomplish in a month.

Tinked back a row of the Forest Canopy Shawl:

It’s still looking like a pile of bleccch

After the successful tink and re-knit, I wanted to shout and sing “Alleluia!”

But, since I was in the Quiet Car and the conductor had warned us if anyone violated the Quiet Car rules he’d call the cops and have us arrested at the next stop, I decided I better not.

Though I think the “Successfully Tinking Lace On a Moving Train Defense” would have kept me out of Quiet Car jail.

Worked on the first Tabloid Sock

And to avoid the Dreaded Second Sock Syndrome, I also started the second Tabloid Sock

Plus I finally finished the Wearing O’the Green / Limerick / Camo Socks

I may be going to DC in a few days--6 more hours of train-knitting! YAY!

You have been a busy, busy lady! Nice stuff.

Quiet car by choice or by accident? I wound up in one by accident, which wasn't a problem ... until my cell phone rang. *g*

We accidentally ended up in a Quiet Car too. My fiance was trying to come up with stuff to make me laugh and when it was starting to work, he would whisper, "Quiet Car!"

Love that color green.

Just popping in to post a comment. The Forest Canopy Shawl is looking great! It's going to be fabulous in that colorway.

I can't knit to safe my life.....your items are lovely, especially the Forest Canopy Shawl!

Why so many long train rides? I would have trouble with that too....LOL

I agree about the colors of the shawl, and they generally look pretty sad until they're blocked. Can't wait to see it "up close and personal", but I won't be there this week (got something else to do). Take care, and see you in a couple of weeks. Pat F.
