kiss me i'm twinkle!
just snagged myself two bags o' twinkle soft chunky in a st. patrick-approved shade of green. managed to score them as they were being unloaded here. magically delicious!
addendum: just knit up a little swatch for the shopping tunic. so far, so good on US19s. along with the super-saturated emerald green, one thing i really like about the twinkle soft bulky already: the edges lay flat and don't curl. also, the swatch feels as light as a feather. as for ease, it appears to have quite a bit of soft stretchiness widthwise; not so much lengthwise.
also, i found this reassuring note about twinkle sizing on the classic elite website:
"some designs have a seemingly small bust measurement but they are designed to be fitted in that way. a woman will find in her closet that a boxy jacket will have a different measurement than a lycra sexy dress although they both fit her. throughout the book, sizing is consistent: XS=31"-33" bust, S=33"-35", M=35"-37", L=37"-39". twinkle sweater design is less about fancy stitches but more about creating a modern shape in a sweater."
