Off To A Better Start

My fingers are glad to be back in familiar territory.  This Linen scarf is being knit, not crocheted.
Still not much to show, but off to a better start than the torquing, crocheted scarf.  And thanks to
Needles & Pins who left a great tip in my comments - and if it works for me, I will explain once the scarf is finished -  it's knitting up faster and easier than expected.

There was no post yesterday as I was off to Toronto to meet up with  son Peter in the morning, then          Sel&Poivre   for the afternoon shift at  the One Of A Kind show.  I practised great restraint coming home with just a single item.   There have been years when I felt I should stop in for some consumer debt counselling on my way home from the OOAK show.  But yesterday all I brought home with me was a  Linen tea towel.
 
A lovely piece, woven by a fellow originally from France but living now in Montreal.

After a day of shopping and hours of driving in relentless rain, the Linen Stitch was the perfect evening companion.   How do non-knitters cope?
