I finished mine!  Cheesy I was way excited! I wore it to school yesterday and got a few compliments. My dad really liked it too! I'm thinking of making a ton more since I'm a matching spaz.  Roll Eyes I really love this button though! I found it in a tin in my mom's/my sewing area. I have a few more too.  I'm really liking everyone else's! Some of the color choices are wonderful! Who would've though that the calorimetery would've become so popular! lol.

Made with this pretty burgundy arcylic I had lying around. I have a lot more and I'm thinking of making a matching scarf that buttons around the neck and glovelets. Cheesy

I was wondering, anyone have any tips on what type of cast-on and bind-off to use?  I just know the basic ones. 

I did a long tail cast on, and a sewn bind-off (which you can see here):http://weebleknits.blogspot.com/2003/05/stretchy-bind-offs.html  Both of these give lots of stretch and work well with the ribbing.

i used cabled cast on, it came out fine in the original one i made following the pattern exactly... but too tight and stiff on the one i made using only 90 sts.

i bound off in pattern on both and that edge came out nice and stretchy on both FOs.

I made it, after long days hours minutes of debating over whether or not I should use the skein of 127 print yarn I had bought on it. So here it is, Knitty's Calorimetry. It took me like 2.5 hours total. It was really easy, and I'm a sucker for easy stuff with short rows.

Soooo cute!  I love the color.  Bold is always good, though I find that I still tend to buy yarns that are muted.  I actually made this myself, but the gauge was all wonky and it ended up huge.  Did you use the needle size recommended to get gauge?  I think I'll splurge and buy the yarn listed for the pattern because it's just soo.... marvelous.   Wink

Yeah, I used size eights. There are a lot of people around here who have made this pattern and wanted it shorter... I think it's a knit-along. You should check that out... and the yarn really is awesome. I love the random stripes...
