That third one is so beautiful! The pattern on the back is amazing.

Do you like the Twinkle book? I bought it, but I just can't get myself to work on a project. I've heard such negative things about the patterns. What was it like when you used it?

I think they all look great on you.  You chose great colours too.  The karate sweater is especially striking on you.  I like it!

I love the book, but the instructions are often bad... not necessarily wrong, but very, very vague.  I always look up the project I'm going to knit on Craftster or Ravelry (or blogs) to see what comments/complaints there are about each one befoer I start...

That karate sweater is SO FAB! Too bad it wouldn't look as wonderful on me. Great job.

Two things:

1) Nillakitty, how many hours do you spend per day/week knitting and how do you find all of the time to make these fabulous garments? I have thought for a while that you either do this full-time or are very good with managing your time.

2) The alpine shrug can be found here for free:

Just click on the link that says "Creative knits from Rowan and Patons". It is in that gallery along with other patterns from Rowan 42. I always check this site for free Rowan and Debbie Bliss patterns before buying any of their books and they usually have the patterns that I am looking for, LOL!  Grin

Well, super bulky knits are very fast... I've only been knitting for a year so it's not like I'm a pro or anything... I am very obsessive, though, so when I start a project I spend every spare moment on it.  And I only work 20 hours a week, so that is most of the reason- I WISH I could knit full time!  That would be the bees knees.  Awww... bees knees.
