Calorimetry II

I received another request for a Calorimetry headband. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in Autumn Red.

After trying a couple of places and failing miserably, I headed down to Tender Buttons and found this guy:

He’s got a bit of a dead-eye stare, but the recipient and I like foxes enough that he’s still a winner. The color is more true in the second image, my camera is a sad 10 year old point and shoot.

Mother’s Day Present

My mom made a request for her birthday for a knitted headband based on a pattern she found on Knitty. I didn’t have enough time to make it before her birthday, but I had plenty of time to make it for Mother’s Day.

It’s has a bit of an odd shape so it covers your head while still allowing you to put up your hair.

I thought it turned out decently, but my favorite part is the horse button that I found at Tender Buttons. I literally stumbled upon this store on the Upper East Side while on an errand and wondering where on earth I could buy buttons within walking distance. Definitely worth a visit if you happen to be in need of a button.

Since I had lots of extra yarn and time, I decided to make a matching scarf. Knit 2, Purl 2, to match the headband.
