The trip back from the island yesterday wasn't a typical one, although a testament to island life. Our ferry was cancelled, they brought in another one for us, and we left 1 1/2 hours late. Because we were out of schedule by that time, we had to wait to dock in Anacortes. Of course that put us in the middle of rush hour traffic, so we had further delays. I got home after 6:30 p.m. - a 6 hour jaunt rather than the usual 3 hours.
Finally finished the scarf in the pattern that I was teaching my friend. (She now has the hang of it and is zooming right along!) I made it out of sugar cane fiber - a lovely, soft and silky yarn that feels like a combination of bamboo, silk, and tencel. Love the feel of it, although it does tend to want to split a bit.
