So I finally got around to making my Calorimetry. I started it last night and knit until I was too drunk and sleepy to knit anymore. Grin I was surprised at the fact I never dropped one stitch that whole night! For those of you who like to knit while sipping something special, this is definitely an easy one, even after you've had a few, lol Wink. I finished it today, and I'm so proud!

Pardon my funky hair and my no-makeup face, I'm just too proud of this to let it go another day without a photo.







(a couple more pics and further details in my blog!)  Grin

I don't generally advocate doing things that require concentration while drunk, heh, but I find knitting after I've had a bit just makes the piddly, slow rows you plug through sometimes just that much more bearable. Certainly helped me get through this tiny project!

I'm going to test my theory on a sweater shortly.

Ahhh, the virtues of alcohol.. LOL.

I just finished my calorimetry last night too!  Cheesy all but the button, go figure I can't find one in my entire crafting stash Angry  I loved how quick and easy it was. The yarn you chose is gorgeous! What is it?

My knitting group knits at a pub on mondays. We call our group the purl and hurl. I try not to knit anything too complicated on these nights.

Hey! I love the colors, too. I used Paton's Classic Merino in "Harvest". SO SOFT. I just have to hand wash it, I'm horribly afraid of felting it.

Calorimetry is a free pattern from www.knitty.com's Fall 2006 issue. Search it up in the archives. It would be a great beginning project, after you learn to knit and purl, because that's all there is to it! Great job, post pics when you're done!

HAHA, my husband (the only man I know of who knows what a purl is) gets the pun and thinks it's absolutely hilarious!

(I live in too small of a town to have a knitting group, and there isn't a yarn shop for 300km in any direction, so I'm jealous!!)

that is absolutely beautious!!

god i tried knitting while drunk last night. i am attempting to make a hat with brioche stitch in the round. um, DIDN'T WORK!!!! lol. i get confused enough trying to knit the thing sober. but man, that was work last night. i should try it with something more simple in the future.

it's hilarious, knitting and alcohol together...such a strange combination...

It's one of my absolute favorite combinations! I love to sit in the living room while getting a little bit liquored up with my mother-in-law as we knit and giggle at the morons on TV.

It might not be the most productive way to knit, but it certainly keeps things interesting! Definitely a straight stockinette endeavor, though..

Gourgeouso. You guys are not very good influences on a 17 y-o who just read through all that stuff. Luckily, I'm mildly terrified of alcohol, so I don't think this is going to make me want to try it. Truly, though, your calorimetry is beautiful, and you actually look quite lovely in it, messy hair and makeupless face and all.

Aw, thanks!

Now I'm thinking about putting a disclaimer on my post, just in case! I don't want anyone drinking underagedly thinking that it'll grant them super knitting prowess or anything.. hehe!
