These Aren't the Hell Your Whales!
First, a quick FO! This is Vertex, a scarf design by Galia Lael of Galia's Spindle Designs. I was lucky enough to get the pattern in my Phat Fiber contributor's box. I used Malabrigo sock in the Persia colorway. I can't even begin to express how much I love this yarn!
I started knitting this scarf the Saturday before our Wednesday trip to Monterey. I had a vision of myself wearing it on our whale watching trip. I finished the body of the scarf just in time, and did the edging when I got back home.
We saw a female humpback whale with her calf! It was pretty awesome.
At dinner that evening I had a bread bowl of clam chowder with a "garlic cheese lid." That was pretty awesome, too.
