Sometimes people get offended when they hear a freakishly skinny person say "plus-sized". I didn't want to offend anyone.

Honey, I am an obese woman and anyone who finds someplace that has patterns that might fit me is sure not rude in my opinion. I think you are kind and sweet to have shared it for those of us who either have to try and adjust regular size patterns and have poor results a lot of the times or not find a pattern at all. Thank you for your contribution!:hug:

Look at it this way sweety, to me you aren't a freakily skinny person, the most I can say about you to pidgeonhole you is you are a voracious knitter! :rofl: Maybe if more of this world would take my suggestion and use our hobbies to describe us and not by our race, size, religion or such, we wouldn't have so many people killing each other or themselves, right???:cheering:

PS: I too bookmarked it!

You are so sweet to be senstive to this, but "plus sized" if fine. Now, if you said, "hey all you fatties", that might have been a problem :rofl: You are so generous to provide us "plus sizers" with this link, and we all give you a great big :hug: for it! (And we'll be gentle since you're freakishly skinny!:) ) I think the only jealously over your body size around here, is that you probably can make the same sweater but only spend 1/2 as much on the yarn:) .

Thanks for the site! I'm a plus sized lady (I like big girl) and appreciate patterns that fit! I wish I were smaller, but it ain't gonna happen anytime soon... So, I wasn't offended, just appreciative. :)

Thanks for sharing, I'll have to check that site out. I have never knit clothes for myself because I figured it would take forever. LOL

But like that song "I'm so much cooler on-line" For you ladies and gentelmen I could be whatever sz and who'd know.

I liked the idea of talking about people by their hobbies and hten we wouldn't be souch a prejudice society. But we are fooling ourselves if we were all physical carbon copies then it's be the knitters ve the crocheters vs the scrapbookers vs the gardeners etc etc. :wink:

Thanks for the link!!! I am in that size group and have friends who are also. If you ever find a crochet link like that please let me know as I have some friends who only crochet and don't want to knit.:cheering:

Hi all you delightful plus sizers. I have just found some darling patterns in Big Girl Knits #2. some of the knitters on Ravelry have already started them so you even get to see them started or finished.

there are 3 at least to die for.

Try your library to see if they have a copy. I did and they do.:muah:
