Work in progress...



Here's my Twiggy so far. It's one rep of the center panel on the body.

Are you sure these knits are stretchy? I'm looking at this thing and I'm like, How the heck am I going to fit in there???

You ladies are so inspiring.

Check this out:  there's a sale on chunky/bulky yarns here:

I'm going to follow Skwirel's example & get some of this Wool East T& Q for that frock-coat like cardigan.  I can't remember the name of it now (at work & the book is at home.)

Hi everyone,
Has anyone tried to make the Skating Sweater?  The notes warn that the completed sweater looks super tiny but that becasue of all the ribs and cables it stretches out to size when you put it on.  Well, I just finshed it in the small size, which I thought would work out becasue I am really tiny (I usually wear a size 0), but when i went to put it on it was way way way too small!  The cables and ribs do expand but because of the huge needles it just looks really stretched out.  I was so dissapointed!  I think i am just going to take it out and try it again in a larger size becasue the Twinkle yarn is way too expensive to waste!

Yeah, I didn't want to commit to buying yarn yet (plus, pay day is on Monday), so I just used what I had, and hoped for the best Smiley I have to say, it definitely goes quickly. I finished both sleeves in one day, and I am NOT even a moderately fast knitter.

Roxybritain:  It looks really pretty! 
  The Twinkle is pricey,  it is great to see so many other options. I love the patterns but cannot start anything yet.

Well, after seeing all those cute cowl necks that are in the Holiday VK issue I happen to have (what's the pattern name again?), I really want to try it. I loved it when I got the magazine (though not in those colors), but thought "nah, I could never pull that off." But now that I've seen how great it looks on yall I am interested again. Is there a cheap yarn I could use to make it in case I don't like it in the end? I read a couple of yall mentioned Wool Ease T&Q, how is that? Any other inexpensive suggestions?
