Age of Brass & Steam Kerchief

I'm not sure why this project took me so long to finish, (okay, it might have something to do with all the purling involved in this pattern - but that's just a guess) because it has quickly become my new favorite scarf.  I wear it everywhere now, even though the weather has been in the 70's, I can't help but wear it.  I cast on for this scarf on 8/22/10 and finally finished it a year later (9/9/11), but hey, at least I finished.

This yarn was amazing to work with. Very soft and squishy and drapes very nicely.  I opted to change up the pattern and use a fingering weight yarn instead.  As a result, I ended up using size 4 needles and I did two extra repeats before completing the final section.
