Ooh ooh....BIG GIRL KNITS arrived, and is this ever a fun and interesting book.
Written for 'size 14 and up', this book is still a valuable aid for those under that size who have "boob, bell or butt" issues and wish to find what are the best shapes, and yarn weights to enhance your shape, and how to add shaping to established patterns.

Amusingly written, sometimes a bit "in your face", this book should be on every serious knitter's shelf, whatever his or her size.

And may I again complement The price was excellent, but even taking advantage of the free shipping offer, the books arrived in three days from ordering!

Thanx for the "review" on this book. I'm also not in the 14 plus range, but wondered if this book might offer some insights into "accomodating" the bigger bits. :) Loved looking at some of your projects...nice work!
