Trip down memory lane

My knit group, the Monroe Bitch and Bitch knitting group, went on an excursion last year (train trip to Portland to visit, what else, yarn shops). I realized I never gave a trip report. So, here you have it - pictures worth much more than words
(click pictures for big):

Lots of time to knit on the way down, work in progress

No shortage of inspiration at Portland Knitting Stores within walking distance of the train station.

habu packages are so much fun

And, it's always good to know where you are (lunch)
before you can get there, you should know where here is

Everyone could use a little therapy:

As the beautiful Winter day closes, we make our way to Dublin Bay Knitting:

We head to the train station at night fall. When we are all re-assembled we view the stash.

It was so much fun, we are going to do it again. Let me know if you are interested in joining us for our 2nd annual all-day knit trip to Portland in January.
