A couple of FO's - Age of Brass and Steam and Pettine

A couple I've finished recently.
Today I finished this Age of Brass and Steam. This is knit in 10 ply cotton so I upped the needle size to 6mm. only managed 7 repeats in the last stockinette section (used about 125g I think, got away with 4g leftover, I judged well) but it's not noticeable. Just love this one, had this yarn (dyed by me, Zanz) and always knew it would be something for me, though dd1 is also a purple fan and so in love with it.

Finished this Pettine a couple of weeks ago but haven't had a chance to block it. But thought I'd photograph it today as no idea when I will get around to the blocking (mostly too wet at the moment or if it is a fine day too busy).
Wasn't sure about this one all through the knitting, loved the yarn when I'd first tried it as a sock but wasn't sure how it went for a shawl but seeing it finished and even more trying it on it really works.

Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief

Absolutely love this. Finished it last week and have worn it loads already.
The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief is a free download pattern on Ravelry.
It's a super easy knit and makes a lovely mini shawlette. It fits perfectly with the v at the front and the ends tie back around at the front. Perfect for keeping your neck warm without any bulk.

This one I knitted using hand dyed 8 ply cotton (by me, Zanz available at ArtEZan) and it is supersoft and comfortable.
I will definitely be knitting a few more of these. Next one planned is in bamboo.

This weeks handspun

This weeks hand spun yarn. Faux cashmere. An interesting fibre to spin but produces the most amazingly soft yarn.
