Today, however, I'm thinking about upcoming fun. I am going to offer a mini skills class on Brioche Knitting at the Norwood Naughty Knitter Fibre Frolic on Sunday, January 15th. I love brioche. I probably don't brioche enough. I could brioche more. I did brioche knit the edging of a recent scarf/shawlette instead of the (less interesting) stitch called for. I've also knit my way through many of Katrin Schuber's hats. I only own one of the hats, but I've knit a few.
For myself I started with Liguria
Beezee for one of the preschool teachers.
Then a fellow twins-momma / dance-family friend requested a similar hat, so I made her the Frost on Roses.
I think another hat is in order soon. Or perhaps one of the brioche stitch sweaters in my queue.
Just look at how squishy it is (best seen in the bulky version) and those beautiful lines. Curves? Easy-peasy.
Sure, you can do single-colour brioche, but I like 2 colours. In particular, I like that this is float-less colourwork.
The edging of this scarf in single-yarn brioche, but not a ribbed stitch.
I know I should have some older brioche projects somewhere, but I can't recall what they are. Scarves I suspect. Simpler basic brioche. Or maybe just some stitch samplers.
I look forward to demystifying this technique for folks next weekend.
