If I were King of the Knitting Forest
2. Berroco will never again hide important sweater details behind scarves and jewelry in the quest of artsy-fartsy images. While I like creative photography, I care far more about seeing every detail so I can imagine what a garment would look like on me. If the neckline doesn't show, I can't tell. Berroco's Cirilia Rose kindly photographed the collar of this pullover so I could see the detailing. By the way, Berroco is not the only offender here - Jared Flood and many others do it, too. In my kingdom, form definitely follows function.
3. Every knitwear designer in the world will fully recognize that NOTHING smaller than a 52-inch bust size qualifies as plus size. Don't kid yourself, Sharon Brant (et al), author of the supposedly plus-sized Knitting Goes Large. In the United States, 48 inches is barely even chubby. Ample knitters disdain your feeble efforts to design for larger women. You don't even have a clue.
4. A patient and kind arithmetic teacher/knitter will be hired to give free math lessons to me and any one else who would needs to figure out equally spaced increases and decreases without inducing a migraine.
Webs gets it but no one else does - which is why Webs is royally kicking the ass of local yarn stores.
7. In my kingdom, cashmere will be cheap and acrylic will be expensive. Now really, doesn't that inherently make sense to you? :-)
