Hi,

Yesterday I received Big Girl Knits and realised I'm not as big as I thought, but its an excellent book.

The lady is from KR and she is one of the most beautiful people I have ever come across.

Thank you Mari.

Knit in peace and harmony.

What a lovely gift! I have borrowed this book from the library (I, too, am not quite that big ) and I found the beginning sections on what shape of clothing looks better on larger bodies and measuring the body to be excellent. I am sure that you will learn heaps from the book. Sadly there were only one or two actual patterns that I liked.

Hi Kathy,

I am already measuring myself up for a ballet top and went out and bought a good fitting bra today, for years I have been wearing a size 14B and found out I am actually a 16B, so no wonder everything looked terrible on me, making me look like I had 3 boobs.

Hopefully this ballet top which is supposed to be the most flattering thing a woman can wear will turn out well, I will even do a tension square.

Knit in peace and harmony.
