Calorimetry and a dish/wash cloth
I finally have pictures of some projects I've done! I don't have a camera so I always have to wait until my BF remembers to bring his camera over - plus I haven't done much knitting over the summer unfortunately.

So - there are 2 pics of my 1st try at calorimetry. It wound up a bit big so I sewed on 2 buttons rather than 1. There is one pic of a dish.wash cloth I made for my mom. I made her a couple more this week, but they haven't been photographed and I have to get them in the mail. Oh well

Oooohh La La! Just love the caliometry and the color, too!
Very nice indeed!

The dishcloth is a mini artwork! I love making them myself,too...I just wish they stayed nice looking after I put 'em thru the wringer! I'm too hard on them I guess!

Thanks guys! The Calorimetry was super easy. I finished it in a day (although it took a week for me to get motivated to add the buttons ) I'm going to make another one soon, but I think i will take the advice I've seen on Ravelry and only cast on 100 stitches.

I can't take credit for the 2 button idea since I saw that on Ravelry too, but I am happy I got the chance to use both those buttons. I love them and I was looking for the right piece to add them too. I figured this piece looked Autumny enough

I love making dishcloths. I'm officially addicted to them

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

Very nice calorimetry! The patterning turned out cool and the colors are very much for fall. Nice use for your pretty buttons.
