Taking the train

A year ago we were in Baltimore for our daughter’s graduation from Johns Hopkins.

Karida Collins of Neighborhood Fiber Co names her colorways after parts of Baltimore and my hometown of Washington DC, and this is her Charles Village colorway, which I adore.

Trust a knitter to think of yarn when seeing what happened in Charles Village after all the rains this week. The train tracks are below. At 1:15 you suddenly wonder why anyone is brave enough to still be holding that camera there–so glad no one was hurt. But wow. That’s going to take some work.

That is sooooo frightening! I can’t believe they stood there continuing to film the disaster!

And I’m thinking, hey, they can pull those cars away from the edge, right?

Nope, I guess not!

Beautiful yarn. It’s amazing that THAT incident wasn’t more of a disaster than it was.
