If I had a hammer, I'd cover it with glitter.

So I decided I wanted to make something like Calorimetry, but without casting on so many stitches (for I currently have a couple large projects going on). I stumbled upon black_buffalo's variation (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=239199.0) and decided that it was SUPER COOL! I eventually ended up making it in a smaller gauge, because I came to the conclusion that I wanted something smaller.

It was made with some Cascade 220 I hand-dyed with Kool-Aid on US#7 needles.

Ooh! This is what's called a teaser. Cheesy

The whole thing in its slightly lumpy-looking glory. It isn't really that lumpy, I promise.

Modeled by a pumpkin, because I am a supporter of seasonal festivities.

Modeled by a human. Note the luxurious bathroom cleaning products. I know; I have expensive tastes.

Because I like buttons. And pseudo-artful camera angles.

That is very cute! I especially like the mismatching buttons with different sizes.

Also, that is the best dressed pumpkin I've seen this season.

Very nice - I like the yarn used - very autumnal!

I love love love the colors in that yarn. My kool-aid dying is horrendous. Well, i've only done it one time, but it looked like sherbert. (you know, the raspberry/orange/lime kind.) I mean, that may  be ok for some people, i just hate the colors. Ok. I'll stop rambling. You did a fantastic job, and again, your dye job is AMAZING!
