It's not often that knitters experience (relatively) instant gratification, but if that's what you're after, the Twinkle Shopping Tunic fits the bill! It felt like it took no time at all, and I wasn't even working on it very consistently. I used 3 skeins of Twinkle Soft Chunky in "urchin," which is sometimes purple, sometimes blue, and sometimes gray, depending on what kind of light (and mood) you're in. The color is gorgeous, but very difficult to capture on camera. I knit the small even though I am NOT a size small, because I had heard that the pattern was very stretchy, and it fits just fine. I ran out of yarn before doing all 13.5" of the collar, but I don't really mind. It's still cowl-y enough for me. The only modification I made was to switch up the reverse stockinette stitch part of the way through the collar so that the reverse stockinette would still show it's reverse side when the collar was folded down...if that makes any sense. Overall, this was a very satisfying knit. It was quick and fun and I think I'll actually wear it!
