Done and done!

I'm chugging right through the WIPs. I'm ignoring the Honeybee Stole -- I think I'm coming down with a cold or something, and Honeybee demands all my attention.

So here's Calorimetry. Well -- half of her. There's been lots written about the sizing issues with this pattern. It's not too long for me, but it's pretty wide. However, it will definitely keep my head warm (once I find a button and sew it on, that is).

Half a Calorimetry

I almost called this post "Knots." Here are just some of the knots I cut out of my skein of Poems yarn I used for Calorimetry. I really like the yarn -- it's squooshy, with a thick and thin texture. But the skein was FULL of knots! Luckily, it spit splices quite nicely....

And here's a whole pair of Serpentine Mitts. It's hard to take a picture of both of your hands...

finished Serpentine Mitts

These are knit from J. Knits Superwash Me Sock Yarn in the colorway called Los Angeles. It's really a nice yarn. I have quite a bit left over from the skein. Maybe I'll make Harley a hat.....

Harley
Try to put a hat on me, and I will smite you with my laser eyes!

Wow! That is some naughty/knotty yarn-hardy har har!

It turned out great! I made my Calorimetry narrower than called for, and if I make another one, it'll be narrower still.

The mitts turned out really well, too! Ha, is Harley challenging you there? ;)

I think a hat for Harley would be great. May and Chaos could get gussied up and their bibs and the three of them could date...or something.

Please have someone videotape you as you put a hat on Harley. I have a feeling it will be a quick bout. My money is on Harley.
