thanks so much SlickMariaVic. i knew it used short rows but didn't realize that they started so soon! thanks again =) i'm making my first one with lambs pride worsted in grey... then on to arancania nature wool in this pretty baby blue/teal color =) or maybe a panta. has anyone done both patterns? do you like one better than the other or find one easier?

Both Calorimetry and the Panta are easy patterns.  I would say Calorimetry would be a bit easy since it takes less thought. You just repeat the same rows over and over for the most part. I guess it boils down to what you prefer; horizontal vs vertical ribbing.

Did you guys find it necessary to swatch first, or did you just go ahead and CO the 120 sts and eye-check it as you went along?

I didnt swatch at all and I turned out lucky.  I had less than 50 yards of the yarn I used and since it was bulkier than the one in the pattern *and cuz I was anxious to knit it up* I just winged it.  I think I did like 60-70 stitches on size 10 1/2 needles.

I just finished mine and I'm wearing it right now  Grin Its the first thing I've ever made with my handspun yarn. Its magenta wool overdyed with dark purple, brown, orange plied on itself with some purple angelina fiber for sparkle. I'm working right now, but I'll definately post pics later tonight!


oooooo -- I can't wait to see it!  I love handspun. 

EDIT:  gorgeous!  I love it!  And I'm glad to see a bulky version.  wish I didn't have so much othe rstuff to get through before I can get started!  of course, it might help if I spent less time in front of the computer...

Kazkitty, I especially like the SWS and that button you chose looks so elegant with it!

Thanks! I've been dying to use that skein I had lying around.. and I actually have a whole jar of buttons like that but in several different colors that my bf brought home for me. Cheesy

I think I'm going to start another one for myself.. just waiting to see my friend to give her the SWS one...

For the people that CO 80 sts.. how many rows did you do? The whole 40 rows? Or did you lessen it somehow?  I don't think I really had a problem with the length on mine.. it was just too wide for my head so I *think* I'd need less rows instead of stitches... but then again, I'm kinda new to the knitting thing so I'm not too sure...  Huh
