I just returned from a short paddling trip in Johnstone Strait, about 6 hours north of home. I was in my element, dressed head to toe in wool and watching for whales. My toque of choice this time around was my newly knitted Tick Tock Toque from Knot Canadian. It’s her first pattern and its free! It was a dream to knit up. I had most of it knit over a pot of tea one Sunday morning. I used a super bulky, yet unevenly bulky, wool from Humming Bee Farm that I bought earlier this summer at Fibrations here in Victoria.
While we failed to spot any whales up close, we spent a night listening to them out on the water. We also lucked out and spent an afternoon paddling alongside a couple hundred pacific white sided dolphins.
More photos of the trip are posted here.
