Fall Trends part 1

I have started restocking the shelves at Yarntopia, and I see a trend emerging - bulky knits. I'm thrilled because there is nothing like knitting a sweater in a weekend. Bulky yarns make that dream a reality.

First on my radar is a new sweater by Twinkle. She is one of a small number of runway designers that actually publishes her designs to the hand knitter. I wish more would! I saw this last fall in the pages of Marie Claire, and knew I had to have it.

Twinkle is using her new yarn, Baby Chunky, which is an fabulous yarn. Not quite as bulky as her Soft Chunky.

Can't wait to cast-on! We have the pattern available at the store if anyone is interested in a knit-a-long.

Happy knitting!
