Bread and cheese with mushrooms

I tripped over this as an image on facebook, and its in bulgarian LOL .. so gotta love google translator :)  Some of the wording is a bit awkward, but no worse than listening to my grandmother speak her English when i was growing up ... Never thought of it, but I guess us children and grandchildren of immigrants could prolly consider our elders language skills as a second language.. no this isn't a slam, more a fond memory of of have my grandmother switch from English to Ukranian in mid-sentence LOL .. and it only got worse as she got older. Brings up some awesome memories :)

Brioche .. Bagged

Finally, I got back to my scarf ... took the threat of snow to get me moving tho .. but its finally done .. This was such an easy pattern to do, least it was once I found a pattern that make sense to me! I shared my 'adventures' with you in this blog post

Now I'm digging round for a slouchy beret pattern  that uses a cable like this .. Think I need to do a combination of two patterns that I found on Ravelry ..the band from this pattern ... (I can do the brioche stitch for it if I want)  Having an issue deciding between Star Crossed Slouchy Berry or Spring Beret. I'm leaning towards the Star Crossed one as its a more slouchy version and I dont have to fuss with the pattern
