I wish I could tell you that when I feel this way, I give myself a spoonful of sugar, fly my magic umbrella to a Mary Poppins kind of place. But I'm not, and I don't. I just sort of trudge through and do what I have to do, and yesterday, I had to get to the shop.

It was a slow day, which means I can do paperwork or write the newsletter, but continue

Brioche 3 1

Brioche is huge for fall. A lovely stretchy fabric, it's especially striking worked in two colors. It's not hard, but it is a little fiddly, especially when you throw in those increases and decreases that make brioche patterns so appealing. In this class, Ginni will show you how to do shaping in your brioche fabric as you make this lovely two color cowl. Click here for more info or to register
