I took along my sewing & needlework, a few hundred books on my tablet, and my smart phone. I had intentions of getting work done, and I did. Traveling on the train is slow, relaxing and for the most part peaceful. I love the little rooms that turn into your bedroom at night. The attendant comes in and makes up the bed at night, and makes sure all is well. The food is pretty good, almost too much for passengers sitting all day. There is even a little shop that sells papers, soda, coffee, etc... I absolutely loved riding the train.
While traveling I worked on perfecting a pattern I worked on all of last year in my spare time. It started out
I've always loved top down sweaters, as there are usually no seams to sew when finished. And I love knitting patterns that don't require reading the pattern after every row. This pattern is like that. You can literally try the sweater on your child as you knit! I'm still tweaking the instructions and layout, but hope to have it ready soon. Until then, I thought I'd show you the sweaters I've made so far.

I tried to get my 2 year old grandson to be my model because he's so pretty he could be a girl, but that didn't work out so well. The 6 year old grandson began saying, "it's for a girl gramma," and the 2 year old totally understood that.... so my idea was shut down quickly!
You would think one of my 4 kids would know how badly I need a granddaughter and get busy on it! :)
