  1. Hey Joe,

    First off, thanks for all of the tips here on how to make our CSS more powerful and modular.

    I just felt like it is worth noting that in the example of the for loop that the line at the end “$heading-size: $heading-size / 1.25;” will actually make it so that $heading-size remains at the final value before the loop is done. I think this is important because if you have another style right after it something like:

    h1.double-size { font-size: $heading-size * 2; }

    Then it would not be double the size you are expecting most likely. Do you know if there is a way to have the value reset to it’s original after the loop is finished without making the code too clunky?

    Again, this is a great piece and thank you for sharing it!
