Hello Everyone,

I am very new to your group, I haven't read newsgroups in years but I
know when you need info they are the best place to go to.

I'm looking for knitting patterns in very large sizes.  Most I've seen
go to x-large or xx-large which doesn't work for me or my husband.
Does anyone know of a source for larger sizes?  Or, failing that, an
easy way to enlarge a pattern, that's something I've never done
before.  I've been knitting for almost 40 years, but I've never gone
past the intermediate stage.

I love my shop owner and we have knitting sessions there several times
a week, but I'd rather not have to share my measurements with everyone
there.

Please email me at snipped-for-privacy@hotmail.com with any info you have,
because I may forget to check the group.  Thanks for anyone and
everyone's help in advance.

This site - http://ample-knitters.com/ has links to larger size
patterns, and a mailing list. There's also the book Big Girl Knits.

Vermont Fiber Designs - most of their patterns go up to 6X and they
have some lovely women's patterns.
