Oooh Boy!

Well hello there!

So I have come to the realization that I will never truly be a routine blogger.  There just isn’t that type of time in my daily schedule, especially now.  I’m putting more miles on my car than the Oscar Meyer Hot Dog Truck but it’s paying off.  Work is getting busier which only means good things but less time to knit and read blogs!  I have been such a lurker this past week only leaving comments here and there.  Know though that I am reading!

Calorimetry

Being in the midst of my busy season it’s not hard to fall in love with Calorimetry. (The JulieFrick Shot ;-))

This knit was oh so fabulously fast.  I actually didn’t realize how fast it was until I was casting off.  It lasted though 9 innings of the Yankee game I was watching and only sat around my apartment for a while waiting for a button. 

I have a full head of curly hair so when I saw this pattern knitted up by the 700 some odd people on Ravelry I knew this must be a hit.  For someone who always feels like I can’t wear normal knitted hats because of the curls this is a soon to be staple in my winter wardrobe.  Plus, with the speed at which it was knit I have got to have Calorimetry wardrobe matching headbands!

The yarn is again Malabrigo which I am having a wonderful love affair with.  Manos, if you are reading this you so need to be finding out how they make their yarn so soft!! I still love your colorways but compared to the ‘Brigo you’se rough…

Well the Yanks are blowing it in their first playoff game, so I have to cut this blog post short… BUT

Coming soon… Juliet’s getting buttons!

    There you are! I miss you! Figured you were nice & busy with work. Hope all went well last week. Oh, and (no surprise here) I’m totally with you on the ‘Brigo love (and it’s superior softness). Good to see you (kinda)! Cute Calorimetry. 🙂

    This looks great! I’ve started one too, out of some leftover Malabrigo. I might run out of yarn, so I think mine is going to end up a bit wonky… go Yankees!

    So I ran right over to the stash box after I saw this picture and whipped one up myself out of leftover Noro Kureyon for Emily. It’s such a fun knit, I might knit one for everyone in the family, even the balding husbands, because who needs hair when you have a great hat?

    Your calorimetry is beautiful. Bought my first skein of malabrigo recently, and I am hooked. I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks now, and thought I would delurk and say hello! Hope you had a lovely birthday.
