End of Days

So it's nearly end of semester and I'm already getting ahead of myself. It's so easy to lose myself in the list I make for my holidays. I do it every time. The last few semester breaks have not gone according to plan so I'm hoping this time I'll get to achieve at least some of the things on my list.

So this magical list I keep mentioning...well pretty much whenever I see something interesting or think of something I'd like to do, it goes on my mental wait list. I basically just add it to the list to so I can get to it when I have time. It's a very long list!

The latest thing to hit my list is brioche knitting.

I've heard and seen examples of it before but I've never considered learning the technique. Until now. I've had this idea to create a two tone scarf. I've started and undone it several times because it doesn't look quite right. The issue is that I'm using two different kinds of yarn; a standard 8 ply acrylic and a feather novelty yarn.

Obsessed with the Dress

My mind is completely stuck on ruffles right now. It's all I can think about. I can't focus on my assignments because it's far too tempting to Google "how tos" on how to knit and crochet ruffles. Damn my lack of willpower.
