i have so much to blab about. just got back from a knitting roadtrip to nyc. but more on that later. right now i have to show you my first twinkle FO, the shopping tunic. my biggest, bulkiest fear was that i would look ridiculous with a big bulky cowl in front of my big bulky boobies. but i think it's gonna be okay. the heels seem to hoist everything up and i'm hoping the narrow jeans slenderize the line a bit. i refuse to believe twinkle is just for girls with model-sized boobies! (not that there's anything wrong with that.) i also kinda like it with the belt. still have to block, but overall, i'm pretty excited about this.
random notes: the pattern called for seven hanks of the twinkle soft chunky for all of the sizes; i used just three for the small... i made the cowl two inches shorter... i knit with the sweater in my lap for three hours and ended up with kelly green twinkle dust all over me... the fabric created with size US19s is very stretchy... on the needles, the tunic seemed to be impossibly long, but the length was fine when i actually put it on.
