Thrilled Skinny?

Two Thursday Thrills today – both come to us via other blogs.

My first thrill comes via Romi’s post on Tuesday – Perfectly Plus, a knitting book especially for the generously proportioned knitter such as myself:

Perfectly Plus offers nine knit-to-fit garments stylized to accentuate the positive parts of you while emphasizing proper proportion in all those key areas that every plus size woman cares about most.

As a plus size woman and knitter, questions can often arise such as: Can I adjust the measurements to fit my special body type? Will the sleeves be too long? Will my sweater come out too short? Before you embark on your project, you’ll feel confident, and reassured that your time and money will be well spent.

I confess to being a bit reticent about knitting garments for the new larger me, knowing that I am disproportionately large about the bust — and not being clear about how to make the best of my attributes without drowning the rest of me. I need some instruction on sizing and this book seems just perfect for me, and I like several of the patterns quite a lot. There is a downloadable PDF version available from Annie’s Attic at just $15.95

I’ll probably buy it soon.

My second thrill came via the Knitty Blog, where I found this Make The Bunny Talk page… well, I had to explore it and… well, I WANT ONE! No, I have no idea why. I just like them.

I’ll most likely never have one, though. But learning about them certainly made me smile.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
