It's a question of scale

I always find myself explaining to people that it is really hard to get an idea of the scale of my woollies without seeing them first hand. A photo just doesn't quite cut it I'm afraid. Yesterday I posted an image on Instagram (LOVE Instagram) of my smokey grey custom order on the make. One of my new found "Random Virals" and fellow craft lover Margie Rahmann from MyVeryOwnEyeGoggles asked if I could take an image of the blanket alongside an everyday item so that she could get an idea of its scale. Brilliant idea. Why didn't I think of that?

I promised Margie I would do this for her today so Margie - this blog post is for you.

This is the type of photo I would normally post on Instagram. I like capturing the detail.

For the purpose of the exercise, I chose a regular tea cup, albeit a very pretty one. Here it is.

I then placed it on top of the half completed blanket like this:

Here's a close up because I can't help myself when it comes to the detail:

And there you have it. I wonder if it is what you expected?

Margie is someone who knows all about scale: she has a gorgeous Etsy shop here and she is also on Facebook. Margie also keeps a blog. Busy, busy, busy. Check Margie out. I'm sure you will love her work.
