Mistake Rib Scarf, FO

This turned out to be the perfect project for my bus ride. The ride from Nuuanu to Waikiki normally would take 20 minutes to drive and 15 to park. The bus took 1.5 hours each way. My son rode with me as far as University of Hawaii (one hour) and he explained all the intricacies of riding the bus in the 21st century to me. This is one of the newer buses, with air conditioning. It also talked and explained all the stops along the way. Two feet of this scarf was knit on the bus. The newer bus is lower then the old buses as the wheel covers are actually in the bus now and take up seat space. I'm not sure if that is such a good idea. It was still high enough for me to observe how different the world looked from a different vantage point. The people watching was fun and educational.
