Good News and Bad News

Meandering shawl 
The good news is I've finished my Meandering Shawl.  The bad news is that it's pouring rain this morning so my pictures are just utter rubbish.  I tried to do some color correction and that helped, but they're still bad.  Sorry about that!
Meandering shawl
This was my first two color brioche project.  I had a little bit of brioche in the WestKnits MKAL earlier this spring, but that was one color brioche.  By the time I finished this project, I was feeling pretty comfortable with the brioche stitches.
Meandering shawl
I knit it in Rowan Kidsilk Night (color 607, which is British for Cool Creamy White with Silver Sparkles) and Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Undergrowth.  I had to skip two rows of the border because I was running out of the TML and I wouldn't have had enough left to finish it with the i-cord bind off.
Meandering shawl
The finished shawl is nice and fluffy and it's reversible!  I really enjoyed knitting it and as soon as I get my yarn wound, I'm going to cast on for another two color brioche wrap.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

That is really beautiful. I have been admiring this as it grew and it is even prettier than I imagined. I took a class in brioche at the Hill Country Weavers Knitting in the Hills Retreat this spring and it seemed extremely slow and difficult, but you have tempted me to try some more. (Have you ever come to this retreat? It's wonderful.) Do you think the pattern you chose is a good one for a brioche beginner? Do you have any suggestions for books or videos to help with the learning process? Thanks for any tips and for the inspiration!
