How Big is 10 Centimeters Anyways?
The only struggle that I am having has to do with the measurements. Heidi uses centimeters. I don't think in centimeters, I think in inches. You know what I mean, when someone says 4 inches, I can hold up my thumb and first finger and gesture 4 inches. So, I got past the lace portion of the sweater, got the sleeves off on stitch holders and then read the line "work to 10 cm." I was wracking my brain trying to figure out how long 10 cm might be. It seems silly that I would not know this. But I don't. I really don't.
Thankfully I am saved by my tape measure yet again. Some wonderfully intelligent person has printed both centimeters and inches on my tape measure. And now I know that 10 cm is 4 inches.
