I made Calorimetry for

my mom

and my sister. What a fun, easy, quick knit! Each was about half a skien of Malabrigo. I am especially proud of the one for my sister because of the adorable elephant button I found.

Caroline loves elephants.

As for "banging out" Red Light Special, I'm afraid it didn't work out.

At least, it didn't in time for Mom's birthday. That's fine, I had another gift for her. It is humbling though. I would ordinarily be able to whip up a hat in no time, but colorwork is HARD! I haven't done any in... gosh, I don't know how long. I feel bad giving my mom something uneven, but I'm hoping that a good blocking will fix it.

Calorimetry looks great - love the colors! I made one too in some leftover Silk Garden - it was definitely a quick, fun knit!
