Happy Valentines Day

Seems like everyone is making this hot little item - so here is my version of Calorimetry, and it is all dressed up for Valentines Day. I've been wearing it everyday since I finished it to! It is a nice alternative to hat when you wear a pony tail in your hair most of the time. It is very warm, but I do find it slightly itchy on my forehead.

It was actually really quick to knit. It only took a couple of hours to knit up . I used the Manos del Uruguay I posted last week for Fiber Friday. I ended up knitting mine a bit smaller than the pattern. I only cast on 100 stitches instead of the 120 the pattern called for and it still really covers my head well.

My mom left a comment threatening to steal it - so I'm going to cast on another so she has her own. I picked up the button at a the LYS and have another just like it that I will use on the second Calorimetry.
