"Don't measure your husband around the chest unless it pleases him!"

This is what EZ has to say in answering a question in her "Knitting Workshop". These videos are so great. Meg (Swanson) is off camera talking to her, correcting her... she makes mistakes and doesn't even worry about it... she's witty and hilarious. I'm loving all of this.

Someone writes in to ask about measuring her husband around the chest and then what to do? Her response is to not do it at all... "Don't measure your husband around the chest unless it pleases him!" Cracks me up. Of course she says to just find his favorite sweater and use it to figure out measurements for the new sweater.

Happy knitting!

I recently used a bathrobe

I recently used a bathrobe to help work out measurements for a friend's husband. We were lucky he stayed around long enough to get a length for the back of his neck. Thank goodness it's a top down raglan and will be easy to adjust...providing we can get him to stay in one place long enough to try it on. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
