Book Review: Twinkle's Weekend Knits

Twinkle's Weekend Knits Twinkle is Chunky Chunky Chunky! (And I mean that in a good way!)

I love Wenlan Chia's Twinkle Designs, they are always the pattern i am drawn to in knitting magazines and it is great to have this book of well-thought out items. It is truly astonishing how cool a giant striped garter stitch can be but from the zippy Arbor Row Scarf to the super striped Borealis sweater the designs are interesting and fresh. She also spends some time with fit and structure to make sure that your chunky Oceania super sailor sweater is flattering and not transforming you into a big blue whale! (And that's comforting!) I am torn between jumping into the Horizon Tunic or just spending the rest of my life making the Sand Dune Hanger Covers - Awesome!
