New FO: The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief

Hello lovelies! It's now looking like spring, feels bitingly cold, but the ground was dry enough that I got to take outfit photos outside! Yay! Today I wanted to share my newly finished object (that's what FO stands for by the way), the Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief by Orange Flower Yarn. I bought this blue yarn on impulse because I loved the bright blue color and had no idea what I wanted to make with it so I went on Ravelry and browsed around. I am slightly sweatered-out, I started another sweater that was going to be a cardigan, but when I finished the body I realized that I lost a LOT of stitches along the way so it fits more like a bolero than a sweater :( So I've put it aside for a while so I can decide whether to just make it a bolero, or if I want to rip it out and start over.

This little scarf was perfect for my bright blue yarn, it's nice because the color goes with the coming spring, yet it keeps me warm. Bonus: it was super quick to knit! I actually started and finished this last night, I started around 7 or 8pm and finished up around 2am. I could have made it a two day project but I was so close to being done as it got later that I just kept going.

My next project will be a hat to donate to children in need as part of a knitting convention I'm going to in a few weeks called Knitter's Fantasy. I'm really excited, I'm taking classes on stranded knitting which means I'll be a pro and be able to make fair isle knits (in my dreams!).
