Attention Plus-Sizers!
I found this Plus-Sized Pattern Website on Shandeh's signature. Here it is.

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!

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! 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???

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 You are so generous to provide us "plus sizers" with this link, and we all give you a great big 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 .
