I couldn't tell if you already found the pattern, but I thought I'd post it just in case:

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/...lorimetry.html

I dunno if you're on Ravelry, but there are a lot of tips on how to make it fit a little better on that site. The next time I do one I will be casting on 100 stitches rather than 120 for sure

Its a really fun pattern!

I used the yarn that the pattern suggested for the calorimetry. Filatura Di Crosa 127 in Limey yellow.

I used Lily Sugar n'Cream for the dishcloth

Awww! Thank you

The calorimetry is a head wrap. You can find the pattern here:

Sorry to be so ignorant, but I have never heard of the word calorimetri. What do you use it for? I cannot tell from the pictures if it is something like a wrist warmer, or a neck warmer thing or what! Love the colours and the button suits "it" very well, JUST WHAT IS IT??????

Well calorimetry is actually a scientific term having to do with measuring heat so even looking up the word wouldn't help you tell what it has to do with what I made In this case though its just the name the designer gave to the pattern. You can find it on knitty.com. Its a headwrap Its a very fun pattern.

Aha! I looked up the word in the Dictionary when I got home, but only got calorie and calorific type words, had figured it was something to do with warmth. I was talking to my sister in Auckland last night and telling her about it, she says to find out what it is, get the pattern and perhaps we can start a trend here in New Zealand! Only problem, we are at the beginning of summer.
