Tackling The Twinkle

After much apprehension, I finally purchased one of the Twinkle books. Don't get me wrong, I think her designs are super cute, I just don't appreciate pattern books riddled with mistakes. However, I figured her publications have been in the marketplace for quite some time at this point, therefore corrections should be easily obtained. So with that, I took the plunge and purchased her Weekend Knits book and tried my needles at the little bralet adorning the cover.



Here's my version in more LadyLinoleum appropriate colors...



I'm happy to report that I found only one mistake in the pattern and it was easy to figure out a work around. All in all, I knit this little top up in a matter of hours and was able to bust a bit of my stash in the process. Another win/win!

Makes for a nice winter warmer, for sure. And with our blast of a cold front coming into Kansas tonight, that might be a nice thing to have. I like the way yours looks over the black shirt.

See. I wouldn't even know there was a mistake. I'd just get done with the project, assume the wrongness was of my own doing and then berate myself into a depression.

Meanwhile, your orange tank top is vurrry nice. I'd wear it.

What better way to "bust" some stash than with a bra?

I'm terrible, I know...

Looks good, I'm not a fan of Twinkle, at all so I'm surprised at how lovely it looks on you. Must be your mad knitting skills.
