sweet.  I'm glad somebody tried this out so quickly!  woooot!  I have some chunky that was going to become a second panta as soon as my Christmas knitting is done, but I think I might do this instead.  The  yarn I've got is Red Heart Cozy Wool (which is really quite nice to work with, but the mittens I made are a little pilly.  But they're mittens, so no big deal.  I don't think I'll use this stuff for a sweater, though).  It's labelled a #5 (chunky/bulky) weightand calls for 6mm needles....

has anybody done Calorimetry with a bulky yet?  Is 80 stitches still my best bet?  on smaller needles???  (and what size needles did you folks use for your worsted versions?)

Any tips?

I'm using KnitPicks Shamrock (which is listed as Heavy Worsted, but seems just as thick as my usual worsted *shrug*) and size 8 needles with 80 stitches and it seems to be working out rather fine so far. But I've been knitting in lines, so I'm not exactly done yet.

I'm loving everyone's Calo's so far.

ETA: Finished mine. I think I lost count the first go round and didn't make quite 15 repeats.... lol.. so its not nearly as wide as everyone else's have been so far. The shape turned out kind of wonky/smiley... but I like it.

And then one of it on......

The more I compare it to other people's, the more I think I shorted a few rows. Oh well, I'm lovin it anyways.

Wow, you all did a great job and are fast! I like the color on the first one and the buttons are a cute addition. I feel like a slacker compared to all of you!

I finished mine yesterday also. I used 80 stitches on size 8 needles. I usd Moda Dea Sock yarn and I think I only used about 1/2 to 2/3 of a skein. Its kinda loose and stretchy which is good since its for my mother n law for Christmas, I still need to find some buttons to put on it.  This is a fun fast knit...

Moonlightbliss33: I can't find my 8's either! I was contemplating whether I should just use one 7 and one 9 so it would...even out...ha ha, j/k, but I went with the 9's, 80 sts c/o.

Ok, I have a question though. This is my first project with short rows, and I know it notes in the pattern that holes are created, but I'm assuming it will work itself out, right? There aren't going to be big holes all over the place, are there?

This thread would be better suited to the Knit-a-longs, right??

it sure would -- do you think we could get a mod to just move this thread over, to prevent double-threading?

EDIT 1:  hey -- let's try this.  I'll hit "report to moderator" on this message and see if we get a happy response.  Gee.  I hope I don't get automatically banned because somebody "reported" me... fingers crossed... here goes...

EDIT 2:  darnit.  can't report myself.  Okay. Somebody report me!!!  or maybe PM a mod or something?
