Twinkle Soft Chunky

Arrived the other day and it's oh so soooft but oh so expensive too.. I bought 4 from ebay and cost $100 including shipping, $25 a skein!! I've heard Rowan Big Wool is a great sub which I can get cheaper online from the UK at

I'm thinking of making this shopping tunic (I'd probably wear this more)

or maybe this cardy, but I think it may 'cut' me off at the middle if that makes any sense?

I've got my Addi Turbo 15mm circs and rarin' to go!

Just for the record: Yes, I am a knitter-aholic and damn proud! I have way too many projects on the go, but, hey, that's the way I like it!

nope it's knit entirely in the round (thank goodness!) and you just wear it with the reverse stockinette side showing, I've cast on for the tunic, I figure I'll wear that more with jeans

ooooo! ive been lusting after a bit of Soft Chunky, but couldnt justify it after my Knit Happens spree.
nundle woolen mills (Australian) have a suitable sub that's SOOOO cheap, but i think it may be scratchy (its pure new wool). if that doesn't bother you, google them.
i thought big wool works out at the same price, given that its only 100g balls? or did i do the maths wrong?

yeah not sure about the nundle yarns I thought the same thing (about it being scratchy) so decided not to go for that after having felt the twinkle, it's so so soft...I've just bought 7 balls of rowan big wool from the UK for GBP51.49 incl. shipping which is around $125AUD, so around $17.45/ball. Better value than the twinkle.
