Hi Glenda If you download this: http://itsmesarah.typepad.com/ExplodingHexagon/ExplodingHexagonCarouselTemplate.jpg and this http://itsmesarah.typepad.com/ExplodingHexagon/LidTemplate.jpg you should not need to enlarge them they print correctly on A4 paper. I am not sure about the issue, you could try eBay. If you go here http://www.sarahyoude.com/2010/09/exploding-hexagon-carousel-box-video-tutorial.html you can watch the video I made which is more explanatory than the article anyway :) Sarah x

Hi Barbara, when you are trying to determine the WPI of very fine yarn like lace weight it can take forever the wind it around. I you do it on a half inch notch you can see what half the wraps are and double it for the WPI total. Does that make sense? Sarah x
