The Age of Brass and Steam... kerchief/shawlette... in...Steam Trunk

This was a project I started in February so I could have something simple as take-a-long-knitting while Miss M was in her yoga class. I had been wanting to cast on for it anyhow, and this was the perfect reason to get started on it.

Overall, the pattern is really easy to follow and you can easily knit it while watching TV or doing any number of other activities since the pattern is quick to memorize.  I made it to pattern, which gives it a nice neck scarf, shawlette size, but if you want it bigger, just keep knitting more repeats!

I had seen this pattern on Ravelry and I had this sudden inspiration for a purple, black, and goldish toned colorway that should complete it. The colorway is called Steam Trunk, but the yarn base was a sample I was trying out from my supplier, so I'm not sure if it's one I'll be carrying in the future or not. Either way, I love how both the colorway and the project came out! I'm really wishing now that I had dyed up more of this colorway so I could have made a hat and mitts to match. It's lovely....
