INGRID! Oh my I haven't heard from you for ages it seems!
THANK YOU, actually I remember you talking about size once and I think you said you have to remember you might want to wear it over a shirt etc. (I think that was you). I was just casting on for the smaller 41" and I thought wait a minute.....
so yeah, I think the 44" is better and your input confirmed it.
Thanks so much and Happy Holidays!
