Friday night calorimetry

What does one do after rushing all day to finish a genetics essay about the role of a particular gene in the development of human pancreas?? like oH mY gOd we won't have a pancreas if the gene is mutated!!

After I got home, I just wanted to sit and knit. I've been deprived from the luxury of knitting and watching tv series cos of assignments.


So friday night....This is what I did...

My fastest FO!! It's Calorimetry from Knitty.com

When my cousin wanted me to knit a 'head band' as a present for her collegue's upcoming birthday, first thing that crossed my mind was to knit a calorimetry. I followed the pattern at first but it turned out to be WAY to big! Something's wrong with the pattern.

So I casted on 100 stitches using 4mm needles. I definitely did much less short row repeats than what the pattern had said.

This time, it turned out to be much better than the first. A perfect fit!!

I HAD to try it on..I want one for myself too!

Now I just need to get a button...an orange button...

Thanks for the comments everybody!

Regg: I bought this ball of Senso for RM19.90. Pretty expensive, but maybe because I bought only one ball.
