This is my calorimitry made from Blue Sky Alpaca Suri Merino that I had leftover from a prayer shawl I made for my mother. I made mine smaller than the pattern in both # of stitches and rows and yet it still looks huge on my head...

nice color. I always get a flash in my pictures when I take pics of myself. Howd you do that with no flash?

Thank you for your replies - it is so soft and warm I love it !
To take a self portrait without the flash spot in the mirror I just turned the flash off on the camera.

Nice job.

I also take pics in the mirror for showing my FOs But I turn the camera facing me and use the mirror to reflect the camera screen so I can see what Im taking a pic of. That way I can use flash if needed.

I must warn you if you are going to make this either my head is 2 sizes too small or the person who wrote the pattern has a generous head. I had to decrease the # of stitches cast on and the # of rows knit overall. I think I dropped 10 stitches and 6-10rows. I frogged the project a couple of times before getting the size to where it is now. Other than the frogging it is a quick/easy knit.

It looks good.
Warm and soft... and feminine... but not overly so...
