The seaberry shell looks fantastic! I especially love it in bright red, and it is gonna look fab paired with a pencil skirt.

Thanks for all the super nice comments! Kiss

modernjanis: The pictures were taken on the deck outside of my apartment in San Francisco. In a couple of months, I will be trading in that gorgeous space for a shoe box in New York. Sigh.

Soon, Kitschkween and I can be homesick together.

The dress and your daughter are the cuteness. It looks like she loves it!

The design for this dress had been bouncing around my head for weeks, but this challenge gave me the incentive to finally knit her up! I crocheted the bobbled neckband, picked up some of those stitches, and then knit the rest of the dress in the round from the top down.

I used Cascade "Sierra" which is an 80 cotton, 20 wool blend. Once the dress got long, the weight of the cotton yarn made the armholes droop down to a pretty obscene degree, so I added crochet around the armholes to correct this. This addition wasn't my original intention, but I think it looks nice.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the link zarafa!

I have to admit that I am a bit disappointed by the styles shown on knitpicks. With the title "Runway Knits," I was expecting more adventurous designs, maybe even concept pieces, but they seem a bit on the conservative side. Not what I expected.

I like a couple, the last sweater and also the swing coat with big buttons (maybe because I'm a sucker for big buttons), but don't feel strongly enough to buy the book.

Landy, you are a week ahead of me- I second your request! I just spent about 20 minutes trying to find pics of patterns, but no luck. I found a couple of reviews on blogs that generally praised the book, still no pattern pics, not even on flickr.

Oatmeal: I had the same problems with my twiggy tunic, but unfortunately, I can't exactly remember how I modified it. I think I may have eliminated one of the short rows and replaced it with another pattern row in order to get the flowers to fit. I know that I ripped back a couple of times to get it right. Good luck!

So lovely! The urchin color looks gorgeous on you.

MandyLikesPie: I have a wimpy, boobless 29" bust measurement and have knitted 3 Twinkle patterns so far. In each case, I knitted the smallest sizes, and all have fit fine, except one that needed a little adjustment. In the back of the book, Wenlan explains what body measurements her knits correspond to, and that many are designed to fit with negative ease. I was really nervous about the sizes at first, but that section helped clear my confusion.

I have been taking a Twinkle break. I am halfway done with the vogue minidress and then I want to try to do the craftster summer knitting challenge. I know I'll return to Twinkle when I need a quick fix.

I love to do a felted join any time I use 100% wool, so that's what I did. It  worked great for me with the soft chunky. No ends to weave in!
