I received a link from one of my vendors to this article regarding stripes. We all know that wearing horizontal stripes makes you look bigger, right? Well, apparently not so. This researcher in Great Britain did a study in which he showed subjects photos of two identically sized women side by side, one in horizontal stripes and one not. In each case, the subjects identified the women wearing horizontal stripes as the more slender of the two. Who knew! So, have no more fear of horizontal stripes – go forth and knit Chris Bylsma’s Spirit pullover or anything else you love that’s striped.
