Wow, you all have done such a beautiful job with these!  I just discovered this book the other day at Barnes and Noble, and I'm so geeked to go back and get it.  I love chunky knits!!  Erm, I'm not a super advanced knitter, but have completed several different projects successfully.  Are there any other beginners/intermediates out there that have found some of these sweaters manageable enough to do?

I just got this book from the library! Yay!  (Almost jumped up and down when I got it!!  Cheesy)

Anyways, I love the book!  Especially the tuxedo sweater.  I'm a little nervous about what the back look likes on though.  Has anyone made this sweater yet, or know of any pics on the web that I could see what it looks like on.  Thanks.
I am also curious about the  back of the Tuxedo sweater. I just can't wrap my mind around that funky piece at the neck.

I have to finish a hat, start and finish a toddler sweater and then I think I'll start the Groovy Sweater dress.

This is third on my list of things to make.  From what I've gathered, it seems that it would lie like a collar on the back of the jacket.  I don't know if that helps at all.


knittinkitten, I love the colour you are using!!!

knittinkitten, what kind of yarn are you using?  it looks really soft and pill free.

It's Rowan Big Wool.  I think the color is Lucky, I'm not sure.

Before I got this book, I had just learned how to knit and had almost finished a few scarves.  I say go for it.  There are some mistakes in the patterns, but you can figure out what to do or go online for help.

Pay no attention when I laugh.  I'm a notorious pervert in that respect.

ANOTHER gorgeous Twinkle sweater pattern in the new Vogue Knitting.  Page 158, pattern 43.  Probably my favorite, so far.  It is very, very wearable for all sizes.  I am definitely going to have to make this one very soon.  I have so many projects going, but this one is a definite.

Shorter evening shell, using triple-stranded Caron Simply Soft Brites in Blue Mint. Sorry, you'll get no action shot from me - I tried it on, and I guess I'm so big that the seed stitch stretches a LOT and starts to resemble some god awful 80's mesh tank top. It fits, but it doesn't look so great on me. Maybe someday.

(I'm sorry the picture is, like, ginormous.)

That looks great! Love the big cable down the middle. Too bad about the fit.

That looks great!  It's good to know you can use Simply Soft tripled.  I love the Soft Chunky, but it's not always readily available and it's lots more expensive.  Plus, having the garment machine-washable is a big deal, since I these patterns are great for my teens.  They're cute, but they are still not overy careful when taking care of their clothes.
