Here we go again!
You’re cordially invited to join us next Monday, July 18, at 4 p.m. Central time, for another Brioche Encouragement ZoomTM. This star-studded event will feature the world premiere of our latest little how-to video: How to Make the Honeycomb Scarf.
Our brioche-knitting film franchise is shaping up to be another Fast and Furious. Or maybe it’s Slow and Sumptuous, but you get the idea. Fans can’t get enough of those tight shots on the lovely hands of Allison Volek Shelton, who will demonstrate the four sublimely simple rows that make up broken rib brioche stitch, just the way we learned it from Nancy Marchant, the world’s foremost brioche teacher and designer. The voice—or should I say, The Voice—will once again be the plummy, slightly school-marmy stylings of Miss Kay Gardiner. I hear she’s trying real hard, bless.
Seriously though, if you’ve been waiting to jump in to Nancy Marchant’s glorious Honeycomb Scarf, this video could change your life. It’s a quick, helpful demonstration of the delightfully flat, reversible fabric that appears in Field Guide No. 21: Brioche. After the Zoom, the video will be available to you anytime on MDK’s trusty Vimeo channel.
Have your Field Guide No. 21 handy during the Zoom so you can follow along with the written instructions and the pattern. Better yet: if you have two Freia Shawl Balls, or a Honeycomb Scarf Bundle, bring them with you on Monday, and you’ll be off to a roaring start, in the company of like-minded (brioche-minded) friends. And remember: two shades of cotton yarn will give you a swatch in the form of a Honeycomb dishcloth! Just add a circular needle and you’re all set. We’ve found that we learn new techniques more easily when we have needles in our hands.
While the numbers we expect will not permit individual instruction, if you’ve got a Burning Brioche Question, we encourage you to type it into the Zoom chat window during the event. We’ll answer as many as we can, as well as we can. And remember that your fellow knitters in the MDK Lounge are an ever-present trove of trouble-shooting and support.
Sign up for the Zoom here, and we’ll send you an email reminder and the Zoom link on Monday. And if you can’t make it on Monday, fear not: we’ve learned how to record these Zooms, and we will be posting a link to the recording after the event.
