What’s that beautiful thing? It’s supposed to be Calorimetry. I have had this gorgeous, hand-spun skein of yarn (I won it!) sitting in my basket for ages. I was inspired to make Calorimetry during a recent road trip because I thought it would be a quick, simple project. That, it is. However, I am frustrated at the results and what you see is the beginning of my ripping back.
I made a gauge swatch and it came out spot on. I worked diligently and was binding off when I got home. I tried it on in the mirror and – egads – it’s way too big – both in width and length! It is not intended for me, but for my daughter. I thought it would be really cute to wear around the college campus. I’m mad that I didn’t read the notes on Ravelry – so many people had the same problem. Oh well, another lesson learned….I’ve learned many over these 40-some years!
See that tangled mess of knitting? That’s not so fresh off the knitting machine!
