Now the sweater’s slowly drying in the breakfast nook. I’m hoping it has shunk up a bit because it’s a little loose on top. (Yes, I know, I’m saying this Twinkle sweater is a little too big! Ms. Chia is right – do not pay too much attention to garment measurements. Body measurements are much more important.)br /br /I’ll get a picture of myself modeling it after it’s blocked. I took one photo of me wearing it before blocking and, well, I just look all lumpy and cartoonish. Not a good look. Gosh, wading through my pile of WIPs is at times a struggle as I am always thinking of new projects to start. I need to work on some more patterns and also branch out into new things for the shop. Ack, if only there were more hours in the day! It doesn’t help that a coldish-flu-y cloud is lingering over the household. Second time this season. I’m so over being sick. OVER it. Not very convenient.br /br /Back to knitting. I’ll also post my mods for this sweater as I made a lot of them. All in all, though, I really enjoyed this project. So very fast and the super chunky yarn makes me feel like a doll. (As far as proportions are concerned.)

    I can’t wait to see it! Do you want me to send you that Weekend Knits galley? It’s black and white, but I got two if you want one (just e-mail me). What kind of yarn did you use? That Twinkle yarn is NOT cheap, but it’s sooo soft feeling.BR/BR/Nice name by the way!BR/P.S. Your shop is on my links page, and thanks for the encouraging words. I would have e-mailed you but I don’t know how.
