I couldn't help myself. After seeing so many beautiful Calorimetries (I'm assuming that must be the plural) on other blogs such as Cristi's, Bezzie's, and CooknKnit's, I knew I had to become a lemming and make one of my own.
Wait a second! That article says lemmings do not all throw themselves off cliffs... way to ruin my entire metaphor, Wikipedia.
Anyway - here is my Calorimetry:
I knit it from a skein of Berroco's Foliage in Japanese Maple I bought up in Duncan, BC over Christmas. As you can see, the colour is redder than the shade card leads you to believe. The pattern was a very quick knit - I started about 8:30pm last night and was finished after lunch today. The button is courtesy of my mother-in-law's tin of buttons. I had to go down to size 6 needles to get gauge, but other than that, everything was knit as per the pattern.
I had intended to wait until tomorrow when I was a bit more gussied up for the picture - but I was so happy with how it turned out that I had Andrew take a picture of me wearing it... unbrushed, napped-in hair and all:
Maybe I will have him take a better picture tomorrow for posterity...
