Thanks. I never was a big fan of pink...but it was one of my first projects and figured i would use left over yarn from something else. Well I ended up loving the pink and made two more for my little cousins. I wish i had pictures of all of them though.

thanks about the kitties. brother and sister who love to get in trouble! haha

Over a year later....  Wink here I am! I completed Calorimetry less than a week ago, though I'm kinda unhappy - its huge! Luckily its got the holes so I can adjust it (To the 3rd hole in!), but man...
But I love the color of it and how it knitted up, So I'm keeping it. Its wool, so I'm going to try a hot water bath for it with no agitation and see if that will shrink it up.

So here it is!:

I made a couple of these this weekend! I'm totally lovin' it! I read through a lot of the posts here first and got some really great advice about adjusting the pattern, so thank you all for that. I ended up CO 72 with a bulky weight Sensations Rainbow Classic on us size 8 needles.

the colors are a bit washed out by the flash in this one...

this one's a little truer to color:

For the record (I didn't read the whole thread!) but for wool ease, the best number of stitches to cast on for an adult head are 44!  I tried like, 10 different sizes (starting out with 120 EEK Shocked!)

I finished my first Calorimetry in February.  I love it tons, but I'll only cast on 100 next time.  This on is done with 120 stitches on US7 needles with worsted acrylic yarn.

I would love to have one in every color, but with the looming possibility of moving to from the east coast to L.A., I'm not very motivated to start right away. ;-)

 Hi I'm new to knitting and I was hopeing that some one could help me.  Smiley

I know that if i make one at 120 stiches it will be to big for me. How do i figure the formula for making one smaller. How do you space the stiches out so that it comes out right. I hope i don't sound to dumb lol

I see how people have made them useing differeant #'s just don't know how to space the stiches right. Thankyou so much if you can help me.
