I wasn’t exactly planning on knitting another shawl/scarf/kerchief at the moment but then I needed something for a long car ride. Something that wouldn’t require lots of thought, something that I could easily memorize and something that’s not fiddly.
So Age of Brass and Steam it is.
A wee bit more colorful then the first one huh?
I’ll be honest the yarn I chose freaked me out a bit when I started it but as I kept knitting (encouraged by my enabler aka: husband), I came to really like how the colors are working out.
But I have something else on my plate too. Something that requires actual gauge as in it must fit a real human and I don’t mean flung over the shoulders but that’s another post. 😉
Oh, and I completed my Brickless it just needs blocking. LOVE! I’ll post pix soon.

Okay so I bet ya’ll have been wondering what’s been on my needles since I finished that wonderful Giggles Blanket. Well, here you go:
Sorry the photo isn’t great but that was the best I could do at the time. It was constantly raining and I got tired of waiting for sunshine. Anyway, it’s Age of Brass and Steam by Orange Flower. I used Malabrigo Merino Worsted in colorway Marron Oscuro 181. I know it’s heavier than the yarn called for but that’s what I wanted and I’m happy with it. It was such a quick knit, before I knew it I was done! I will definitely be making another one real soon. I already have color ideas.
Ok and hey, if you are going to be at RHINEBECK next Saturday this is what I plan on wearing…unless of course we have a heat wave at which point I will have to rethink my options.
Oh and by the way, the recipient of the blanket absolutely loved it! Made my day. I announced the winner of the pattern giveaway on Monday on my last Giggles post, in case you missed it. You can still get the patter at a 25% off discount until October 15th, so check it out!
