The TueReview: Twinkle’s Town and Country Knits

www.randomhouse.com 1Ahem. This book is subtitled “30 Designs for Sumptuous Knitting”. After double checking that this particular book was really for me, since I am about as far from what I presume to be sumptuous living as it is possible to get and still live, I cracked it open. And inside, I discovered lots of stuff that even plainer Janes like me can enjoy knitting and wearing. I do have to tell you that Twinkle loves her some chunky knits. It is her signature. Now, you know me, and you know I am just not that in to chunky. It’s ok now and again, but not for my every day, all the time knitting. Nonetheless, I have teenage daughters who knit/might knit if they could find cool projects to make, and ya’ll, Twinkle’s Town and Country Knits fits the bill easily.

And after all that, I did find something I’d like to make. It’s the BookBrowser’s Sweater. Three guesses what color it is! And also, maybe the Stockholm Sweater, even though it’s not that same color ;) All jests aside, this book is full of trendy designs that quick to knit and intricate at the same time. That’s a difficult combination to pull off, but Wenlan Chia does it, and she does it well. Again!
