Anyone want to knit some Twinkle patterns with me?



If you have peeked inside this book, you may have noticed that the gauges and sizes are totally wacky! I really want to knit these, but a knitting a sweater with a 22" bust measurement may require the support of my fellow craftsters. Any takers?

I haven't actually seen the book, but one of her patterns is in the Spring 06 issue of IK, does that count? Because I totally want to knit that pattern.

I have a couple of projects to finish up before I begin anything else. I am really anticipating knitting something from this book though...

I think I'll be getting the book soon, but I probably wouldn't start a project for a month or so.  But I am looking forward to seeing everyone else's projects!

hey all!
i'm going to be spying on your knitalong so i can see what you're making, adjustments you're making, and what you think of the patterns you're working with...i'm debating buying the book just to have some guidance in working with chunky yarn which i don't do very often...on verra!

I'm in!  I plan to make the karate sweater, pilot hat, chelsea sweater and those are just in the first section...

I know a lot of people are complaining about sizes but I'm a 38 in bust and I think I'll be able to make most of these work...  I hope to cast on soon, but I'd like to spin some yarns for a few.

I can't wait to see what everyone else decides to do!

I bought the book and think it looks great. There is some errata posted on the Classic Elite Yarns website. From looking at the designs, they are very stretchy... so you do not need to have a 22 inch bust!
