Saturday: Calorimetry Explored

It is definitely winter (as felt by all today). The cold air inspires us to knit things us to keep us warm.

Barclay stopped by to show us her recent socks knit up in Online. These house socks are a gift for a friend of hers.

Ina stopped by with Gumby to show off some calorimetries (plural for calorimetry) that she knit. On the table are two of her most recent completed ones. The one on the right is knit in Zitron Ecco.

Here is Ina and Gumby modeling how the calorimetry works.

We had mentioned calorimetry in another post because it doesn't require a lot of yarn and it is a quick knit project which makes it great for gifts. According to Ravelry, there are 1,500 calorimetries made by its members.
What are some of the yarns in the shop that would work well with this pattern?

Top right in Pink: Zarella
Bottom right in Purple and Green: Artyarns Ultramerino 8
Bottom left in Blue: Zitron Ecco
Top left in Blue: Reynolds Odyssey

Most of these yarns can be knit using a size 6 US needle.

Tomorrow, we are hosting Mary Beth Temple the author of The Secret Language of Knitters from 2-4pm.

Also, join our stix-n-stitchers group on Ravelry and get a sneak peek on specials and events.

That Crystal Palace Fjord y'all have works great too! It called to me on the shelf last time I was in there, screaming to be a Calorimetry and what do you know--it worked!
