I like that. I miss wearing scarves and bandanas! The coolest it ever gets here is really just hoodie weather.

I love purlbee! I've wanted to make the brioche stitch cowl forever, but all the projects on ravelry are some version of "this was annoying and tricky to knit".

I agree, that's awesome! Makes me wish I could understand knitting patterns. Maybe I'll make my mum teach me when I go to visit her over Easter.

I have been fighting with brioche stitch for about five years and it always ends with me in tears and starting fights with family members.

I'm going to try a swatch tonight with yarn I already have. If it's terrible I'll squash my dreams of brioche stitch cowls.

Well, I knit like two inches of two-color brioche, and while I think I could definitely *do* a cowl (long tube==easier than hat. No decreases!), it would take a long goddang time and would probably be confusing. I might tackle it this summer.

Oh my! I love this. Makes me wish I could knit or knew someone who I could convince to knit for me on demand.

Don't even know where I would wear this too, but I've been ogling it for months now:
