The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief

Finally!

Finally!

A few weeks ago I knit The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief.  I bit the bullet and joined Ravelry just for this pattern.  After I saw Pinko Knitter’s version of this scarf, I had to have it.

Luckily I had some lovely yarn in my stash to use!  My Mom bought three balls of this yarn for me two Christmas’s ago…it started out as a sweater but I didn’t like it so I ripped it out.

One ball worked up perfectly for this project which was wonderful.  This scarf worked up super-quick.  I mean like a week, week and a half, tops.  This pattern was also really portable, which helped me finish it.  I have quite a few projects on needles that are just too big for me to lug around, so I’ve lost interest in them, being able to stuff this project in a small bag was really convenient for me.  I will definitely knit this pattern again, it was so fun!

Street Art #2

So this was an awesome street to walk on...just saying.

Yes this has the same picture from my last post, but since it’s all from the same piece/street I had to keep them together…also can we just look at the fact that…

I made a collage!

And sure this is nothing to some people, but sometimes I literally astound myself with the sheer lack of computer literacy I possess.  Astound.  But anyways, I made this schmancy little collage with picmonkey, and it was wonderfully easy.  Drag and drop editing, apparently I can do!

This mural was on Dauphin Street in Downtown Mobile, AL.  I was there last week for SETC (South Eastern Theatre Conference) and I had a wonderful time.  My friend and I wandered all the way down this road and found a few nice shops.  But as I can’t buy clothes (oh New Year’s Resolution, why did I pick you?!) I didn’t get anything but lovely pictures.  And food, delicious food…oh and we seemed to bring the nice weather back with us for a time, let’s pray it lasts but I hear snowfall is on the radar.  Oh well I still have tea 🙂

Street Art from Mobile, Alabama.  I was going through my pictures from last week at SETC and this quote jumped right out…if it was a dog it would have bit me.
