Crochet Brioche

One down, two to go. Ok, who am I kidding? Lots to go is much more like it. My WIP* list on Ravelry is almost embarrassing. Done is the Pashmina Brioche Cowl - made with two colors of super soft, luscious madelinetosh pashmina in 'fig' and 'posy'. The pattern is from the Winter 2011 edition of the online magazine "Tangled". I love that they have both knit and crochet patterns and that they 'cross-pattern' - designing the same item in both fiber mediums. I added a row of picots to the top and bottom edges and didn't make it as wide as the pattern called for. This is So. California, after all. Don't need a thick cowl that's likely to give me heat stroke.

Leanne's christening dress in under way once again, with the ceremony scheduled for July 2.
I tried it on her before I got to the skirt - good thing since, just like Addy's dress, I needed to add 2 rows to the bodice to accommodate my long-waisted baby grands.

And while I should have been working on the above (or the sample I still owe the shop for an upcoming class), I just had to start this last night with my handspun yarn.
It's Colleen's fault, talking about how much fun she had making her Helix scarf. Love the yarn, love the pattern, not sure I love them together. Opinions??

that is why I have taken to only posting things on Rav when they are finished.;) (always making a good show for company)

Can't wait to fondle that cowl when it arrives!
