Measuring Yourself: A Necessary Evil
Please tell me that I'm not the only knitter who hates taking her measurements? I find it so depressing. I also hate those little perfect-hourglass stick-figure illustrations they always use to show you where to take your measurements. Talk about a hit to the self esteem. This is why I'm in love with today's Knitting Daily post about taking your measurements where they use photos of a curvy woman for illustration. Finally! A measuring demo that makes sense for my body! I love that they include a section on taking your belly measurement. No one ever does that and I feel bad because my belly is pretty ample and I need to take it into account when measuring myself for a sweater. Again, no guilt here - they're just like, "Hey! Here's how to take your belly measurement! Adjust your waist decreasing accordingly..." I like it.
