The Sweater Survey
Alrighty roo cowgirls and cowboys! Here's a link to the survey. Please fill it out and pass the link on so I can get more sizes. For those who don't remember, back on April 25th (you do not need to remind me that that was nearly two months ago) I ranted about how sweaters didn't seem to be any kind of real size, so I wanted to know what people's sizes were. Real people, not what Brand XYZ said a size is. I was frustrated at how patterns for knitting never seemed to match up with what real people wore. And that sweaters (in particular) seemed to be built around some odd formula that was applied to one size without test knits being done on other sizes. So now I'm wanting to collect people's measurements. You can remain anonymous. I'm not going to come hunt you down with a measuring tape to verify, but I would appreciate if you are honest (you should be anyway because otherwise you knit sweaters for yourself that don't fit correctly).
If you get a message that says something like "exceeded monthly limits" let me know and I'll send the survey to you another way.
