So many pretty patterns I'd like to work on, but I cannot seem to get this one out of my head. I cast on last night with KP's WOTA in Lake Ice Heather. Loving it! So far I have completed the back and will start the front sections tomorrow!!!
I too purchased this book, but I didn't pay full price as I pre-ordered it through Amazon. I think Twinkle's work is beautiful, but being a busty gal and all, I don't think I'd be making many of these for myself. I think Z hit the nail on the head about being comfortable resizing patterns to make some of these work for you. I don't feel like it is a complete bust (pardon the pun!) because I have a little sister who has already made requests, so at least someone will benefit. I have noticed that when her patterns are published in VK and IK there are extended sizes and the suggested yarn subs are the same ones she suggests in the back of the book.
Hi, I am trying to create a sweater that has been in my head for a while and I imagine it to be sort of sheer. I don't particularly LOVE mohair, but I wanted to know, are there any yarns out there that will give me the sheer effect that mohair does?
