Finished Calorimetry

So... I have been wanting to knit one of these since I first saw them. I know just about everyone has knit one, but I really wanted one.

Here she is:














Pattern: Calorimetry from Knitty
Yarn: Patons Soy Wool Stripes in Natural Plum
Needles: US 6
Knit For: Mineself
Notes: I used size 6 needles rather than size 8 as was recommended. I had read a lot about how these were coming out way too large. I still cast on 120 stitches, just as the pattern says. I only did ten repeats of row five where the pattern calls for fifteen. It fits very nicely.

Your calorimetry came out lovely!
Pretty colours.
I did one a while ago too with Noro but I cast on fewer stitches-90 if I remember correctly and it came out fine.

Well done! I did what Christina did and cast on fewer. They're so practical and yours is so pretty!
