This one is for the Fall/Winter scarf swap. I really really wanted to knit something with my leftover Noro Kureyon scraps. My partner, miss_k, said that she wanted the fibers to be soft, and kureyon isn't the softest thing on the planet....

So I improvised: I found an angora sweater from the nearest goodwill in Baltimore a couple of weeks ago for only $2. What a deal! you can't even buy one skein of angora for that price. So, that's really soft. And that green could go with the kureyon, and I'll make the part that goes over the ears be really soft, but the part that is on top of the head could easily be the kureyon.

So, I changed color/yarn for the center part. i think it turned out well.

Comments will make my week. I've had an extremely weird week.

I love it!  The colors are fabulous together, and it looks nice and toasty.

In fact, I think I'm going to have to wist it Grin.

I just made one of these, too... with icky grey wool-ease.  so itchy!  oh well, it was in my stash and I needed something to keep my ears warm on my evening walks.  I was wondering about color changes and I LOVE yours!  I may have to make another one and copy your idea about the itchy yarn in the center and the soft yarn on the edges!  GREAT IDEA!

I'm glad you like it.

A couple of people saw my collection of calorimetry's, and theyre all like "that's so cool! was it hard?!"

Something I forgot to mention, it has a snap in the back instead of a button. its easier to fasten.

Your Calorimetry looks great!  I have some holiday yarn (red, green, white variegated) that I think would work well.

And thanks for introducing me to the Calorimetry!  I did a search and found a pattern:

I have a question. I was just looking at Knitty's pattern and in some steps it says to turn work. Does that mean to flip from RS to WS? Or is it something else?
For example: "Row 2: Work in 2x2 Rib as set to last 2 sts, turn work."

That looks great!   Cheesy
I printed out the pattern and, now I'm gonna try and make some of these. It's a nice change from the Panta's that I've been making.
I had a question for you, if you don't mind.  Undecided
When you change colours from the edge to the center and vice versa, did you cut your yarn?
That would make an awful lot of yarn ends to tie and weave in later.
Or did you somehow carry the unused colour, and then just switch to the other colour somehow without cutting the yarn?
I'd love to know how, you changed colours.   Roll Eyes
