Brioche

Yesterday being the last day of the unraveling 2007, I unraveled a wip of mine, the silk scarf based on the Ogee Lace Skirt by Gryphon Perkins from Interweave Knits of Summer 2007. Ogee Lace Skirt by Perkins I had used the central part of the pattern, but it didn’t look well. The silk was too ‘fluffy’ to look good in this pattern. Now I’ve started a two color brioche scarf, inspired by the workshop I took with Nancy Marchant. I took the technical instruction from the pattern found at Run and Not Grow Weary (who refers to Borealis Yarns for copyright. I’m surprised they could copyright it, it’s so generic 😉 ).

It’s the first of January 2008. Beginning of a new year, beginning a new blog.

I’ve decided to leave my blog at Hyves, and continue here, due to the feature free nature of Hyves 😉

At first, I decided that this blog should be about knitting and all those things. But I’ve realised, that I end up blogging mostly about the cats and school + work. So beware, this is going to be a rather diary-like blog… about what keeps me occupied, what I decide to to drag and drop from the ‘real’ world into this private domain of my blog. Could be all sorts of things: endangerd mice, knitting and frogging, cats throwing up, grades obtained, etc. etc.
