Ten Thousand Stitches

A 90 minute ride from New York to Philly on Amtrak was more than doubled when we lost electrical power last night.  I wonder if the problem was due to what SEPTA calls “Slippery Leaf Season”.  It was a blustery day yesterday … could fallen leaves have contributed to the train’s difficulty getting electrical power?  I never knew about this issue and how significant it is until I started riding on trains a lot in recent times.  Thank goodness I had my knitting with me!  I got some good stitches in while we sat on the tracks just outside of Newark.  This picture celebrates 10,000 stitches.   (204 stitches per row, about 6 rows per inch, about 8.5 inches)
