The last person alive to knit her first Calorimetry
Since I'm relatively new to this whole knitting obsession, I am just making my first Calorimetry

I used the DK weight Evolution yarn from Chameleon Colorworks in Sea Monster. This yarn is insane. It's so freaking soft and silky, you would never in a million years believe it was 100% wool, it honestly feels like silk. If I could afford it, I would knit pajamas out of this yarn and never take them off ever, hee.

That's pretty!
You're not the last person to knit her first calorimetry. I haven't made one yet, although I intend to at some point.

That looks great. How many stitches did you cast on with a dk weight?

Great job and nice colors too! I got on a kick of making those last winter. I made about 9 different ones for the girls so they had a selection of colors. They love them!
