And here is a picture of the size difference:
As you can see, a tad smaller – just right for a kid!
Tomorrow starts the Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL – I for one am excited! Let’s for the moment forget about the fact that I don’t really do well in KALs, the mystery factor makes me totally want to participate. Also, the secret of the colour combos is out! Have you guessed some right? I bet there were a few surprises…
Happy Knitting, as ever!
