Yarn Train

Way overdue on my posting.... The Yarn Train was fabulous this year. Charisa is the driving force behind it with the Snohomish Knitters Guild, another brainchild of hers, sponsoring it. Thank you Charisa and volunteers !

Carol, her faithful companion.
Morgen and Debbie The ever smiling Kitty, a Knit Cafe' alum.

Linda and Jane
Kristin and her mom.

Waiting outside Voodoo Donut's with Debbie and Kitty. It was an hour in line before we could get inside to buy some of their tasty and trademark confections. Number one on the list was an actual "Voodoo" donut complete with a stickpin pretzel to curse some unlucky "b-----d" ! To think that donuts could inspire such devotion from fans around the world ! I was twice as lucky as Charisa had arranged to have their famous Bacon and Maple Bars delivered to the train station. Pretty good for how it sounds !
