We went to the local craft store this afternoon to buy some supplies for Pumpkin Girl's Valentine exchange. There are 24 kids in her class so we need to come-up with at least 25 items. For the friends at daycare, we usually just do the candy. We stumbled upon a pack of scrap book paper in one of the bins. The light bulb came on and a decision was made ... make origami flowers and stick a lollipop in the middle.
Then I wandered off to the yarn section and found some variegated Patons Merino Wool. Instantly I thought about knitting Calorimetry. It's been on my mind but I've been trying to stay focused on CPH when I have time to knit on the weekend. I had Pumpkin Girl pick out a color. Voila!
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool Merino in Rosewood
Needles: Addi Circulars in US #8 (9 for bind off)
(02/11/07 - 02/11/07)
Modifications: I cast on 80 stitches and only did 7 repeats of Row 5 and 9 repeats of Row 7.
Seriously it happened so quickly. It did not make it to the sidebar until after completion. I will definitely make one for me with the leftovers.
