Have you signed up for “Knitting Daily” yet from Interweave Knits? It’s a great little blog which actually comes in your email. The reason I’m telling you about it today, though, is the Friday entry on The Four Knitting Truths. This article talks about how to make a garment that works for your body. There is a link in the article that takes you to a How to Measure Yourself page that includes photos. Two of the measurements are unique: Buddha Belly and High Tummy (both for ‘Rubenesque’ or ‘Goddess’ women). If you’ve ever made a sweater that you loved in the photo in the magazine or book or pattern leaflet, but found out when it was finished and on your body that it just didn’t work, I would highly recommend that you read this article and pull out the measuring tape!
