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