About the Author

the marilyn jacket i get tons of compliments on. i used burly spun yarn for it, and it came out beatiful, but is prob a bit more scratchy than twinkle yarn would have been.
i gave the pilot hat away as a gift. i used the baby pink to knit it and white buttons. (the large twinkle buttons don't come in all colors, so make sure you check before starting your pattern). And the large twinkle buttons are quite pricey, i think they were like at least $5-$7 ea.
also, finding the large gauge needles isn't always that easy. luckily i have built a pretty good collection. but it wasn't easy. for the circular ones i have some of the turbo metal ones with the plastic tubing, and also have the cheapo susan bates ones. for non circular, i have both the cheapo plastic susan bates and also some nice wood ones i won from the twinkle contest. the susan bates circular needles are nice and light, however, the plastic connector seems to come unglued. i guess you can't ask for more since they ARE inexpensive.
i like how chia indicated clearly that sizes should be taken based on measured size, not finished size of project. it makes the sizing much clearer.
one comment that they could work on would be to have more pictures of the finished product, from more angles on and off the models. and it would be nicer if the picture alongside the pattern was blown up a bit larger.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that there were many designs that I want to make. Most of them call for chunky yarn so hopefully they will be quick to do up.
The only reason I have given this book 4 stars and not 5 is because I actually haven't made anything out of it yet so I can't say how easy the patterns are to follow.
