Pink Calorimetry

Pink Calorimetry
Originally uploaded by knittingbrow
This is my completed Calorimetry. It is knit from using Malabrigo wortsted weight yarn and size 7 needles. I modified the pattern to CO only 96 sts rather thn the recommended 120. I think it will fit the recipient well. One more version of this is included on my holiday knitting list.

I rather enjoyed this project. It took me 2 hours and 12 minutes to knit. I think the purple button works nicely with the pink yarn. The button fits snuggly through the button holes.

I heard about Jeny's super stetchy bind-off from the Fall 2009 I uses the bind-offfor this project. I am a huge fan of this way of bindingg off. I think it is a great compliment to the German Twisted Cast-on. Click on the photo and you'll go to my flickr page. There are two shots of the edge of the project. Can you see a difference?

My gift knitting has some quick deadlines coming. I have another project due in Sat and a hat she on Sunday. I am knitting on the Maine Morning Knits for the KAL for our knitting group.

I'm feeling some great motivation to get some projects done! I'll videoblog about the projects this weekend.
