Finished Project: The Age of Brass and Steam

Over the summer I decided it would be nice to have a smaller project after finishing my sweater.  I had some Wolle’s Yarn Creations color changing yarn in my stash that I was really wanting to knit up and The Age of Brass and Steam seamed to be the perfect pattern to show off the beautiful color transitions.

Age of Brass and SteAMI added one extra repeat of the pattern and then knit the garter stitch edge until I finished up the skein to be sure to make the most of all the wonderful color.

Afternoon at Good Intent’s New Cidery and Tasting Room

Last year I posted about a great meal that we had that was made better with Good Intent Cider.

Good Intent Cider got even better because this weekend they opened their tasting room at 167 South Potter Street in Bellefonte, Pa.

And of course I got a sweatshirt before I left because I love a good hoodie and I’m sure it won’t hurt if there’s another person out there wearing their gear.
