Calorimetry


Last night I needed a break from Trekking Sock#1 but wasn't ready to get out the skein winder for Wild Apple bohus. Since I have several single skeins, I remembered that Sarah had posted a Calorimetry (Issue Winter 06) from Knitty on her Christmas blog post. It looked like something quite wearable, especially since what was my worst permanent ever is finally growing out.

I'm following the pattern (!) Patons SWS (Soy Wool Stripes)in Natural Blue #70128 is the yarn I'm using. It feels a bit crunchy yet very soft and shiny at the same time. It's the soy. I'm anxious to see how the patterning works out and how the headband dresses.

Calorimetry is a little over half done and is a quick knit. Will do a FO post about it soon!

The striping is coming out nice. Project looks good also. It is a nice yarn to work with. It is amazing the fiber mixes that are now on the market. A couple of small projects to wind down the year, then you can start your sweater.
