3 Calorimetries Full
I love knitting Calorimetries - they are a fast, fun knit that is great for stash busting - and fun and useful to wear too.
I've knit my first Calorimetry for a swap partner who likes the colour blue and things that are both quirky and useful. I used some left-over Merino Supreme, the softest wool I've ever encountered that is unfortunately no longer being made, and finished it with a little sheep button I acquired during a recent swoop at Clegs. If that's not both quirky and practical, I'd like to know what is.
I was happy how it turned out, and I had some wool left over, so I cast on for another swap I am taking part in. I even found a second identical sheep button.
I STILL had some wool left over and managed to find YET another identical sheep button, so I decided to make a Calorimetry for myself.
So there you have it. 3 identical Calorimetaries, each adorned with a sheep. Three bags full.
