Spring 2011 Knitting Magazines

Last night, I asked my hubby to take me to Barnes & Noble, so I could look through all the new Spring 2011 knitting magazines. I wanted to see if I could find any nice new plus-size knitting patterns for us! :)

Two Button Vest - goes up to size 2x

Lace Poncho (nice for a beach cover-up)
It says "One Size Fits All", but it looks very roomy on this model. Of course, she's probably a size negative 2. HA HA HA
