When The Pattern Says 'Large,' It Means It

A week or so ago, I was sitting on the patio steps, knitting happily on this:

Usually such a prospect sucks some of the air out of the room, but this wasn't too upsetting: At 2 st. to the inch, it won't take long to reknit, especially a bit smaller.

And so, back into the frog pond it went. As I ripped and wound the 10 skeins, a question occurred to me. I kept going and soon got my answer:

For comparison, that's an average-size navel orange. In case you're wondering, no, I don't get out enough.

Now casting on: a size medium.
