okay... probably a stupid question, but it needs asking:  how exactly do you do "short rows"?  what exactly is meant by "turn work"??

i don't get it  Roll Eyes

When you "turn work", you basically just flip your needles around.

flip them around, like upside down?

No, not upside down.
You turn it like what you do when you knit the last stitch on a row.
Only, it's not the end of the row...
But you treat it like it is.
Oh god, does that make any sense at all??

I am new to Craftster, but this is one project I have completed before I joined. Just thought i would post my picture. I have made like 8 more of these. A few in purple and black for some fans of our home football team - The Ravens.

Thanks. I never was a big fan of pink...but it was one of my first projects and figured i would use left over yarn from something else. Well I ended up loving the pink and made two more for my little cousins. I wish i had pictures of all of them though.

thanks about the kitties. brother and sister who love to get in trouble! haha

Over a year later....  Wink here I am! I completed Calorimetry less than a week ago, though I'm kinda unhappy - its huge! Luckily its got the holes so I can adjust it (To the 3rd hole in!), but man...
But I love the color of it and how it knitted up, So I'm keeping it. Its wool, so I'm going to try a hot water bath for it with no agitation and see if that will shrink it up.

So here it is!:
