As with so many crafty type things, I’ve become obsessed with brioche knitting. Why can’t I become obsessed with cleaning the house or getting rid of clutter? That’s probably never going to happen.
I have not succeeded at any brioche but I’ve tried it several times. I love the feel of the fabric made by brioche knitting. It’s lofty and cushy and snuggly, without feeling heavy.
I have a What the Fade started, or, I think I HAD a What the Fade started. I believe I ripped it all back. I kinda was doing brioche on there and then messed up (several times and gave up.
And here’s a Fluffy Brioche Hat that doesn’t look too difficult. It’s a free pattern. Maybe I should try that first.
Peace of Mind is in my library. Maybe I should start there. The last time we moved, I started and finished two quilts named “Bloom Where You’re Planted”. That helped me get through the move and I even gave one to the lady whose house we bought in Nevada. She was not happy that they were being transferred so I hope my quilt made her happy. Maybe Peace of Mind would bring peace to my frazzled mind but doing brioche right now does not sound very peace inducing!
Briochealuscious is another one I started but never got as far as the brioche.
That’s exactly how far I’ve gotten and I started it in 2016. May be time to pull it out but I’d have to knit a whole lot before I get to the brioche and then I might screw it up and then all is lost. A hat . . I’ll start with a hat.
But first, I will finish some projects. Really, Judy? Finish projects? That doesn’t seem to happen much. New techniques, new projects, new yarn, new patterns – so much more fun than finishing the old stuff.
I started to say . . I’ll finish this, this and that before starting something new but . . I can’t fool myself and I probably can’t fool you either!
