Well,here in Philly, it will be 62 today and over 70 tomorrow. Send me your snow. This Canadian is in withdrawl!


Thanks for the tip about Calorimetry - I have a very small head :) Welcome to the Knitting Nature train! Those are some of my favorite patterns too. So many, it's hard to know where to begin!


I plan to make another Calorimetry soon once the weather here gets cooler.

I love Knitting Nature but do check out the errata or the KAL group. Many of the patterns have errors.


We've got another snow day, too. Buggars... I was planning on doing some fun shopping in town, and today was when they'd rescheduled the vocal concert the kids had been practicing for. The kindergartener was very upset when I told her it might not happen.

I do love the creativity in the cables in Knitting Nature. I couldn't wear half of the finished projects shown, though. That second (blue) one for instance... I'm not large chested, but I am low slung. That top (besides being rather scandalous) would make me look like my boobs were on my knees.


I love that you are working the Calorimetry in crochet and am looking forward to what you come up with.


Yes, the problem with Knitting Nature is deciding what to knit first. Her designs have such interesting twists. It will be fun to watch your progress, whatever you choose.


Kristen & Jillian: I'm really stymied as to which I like the best and which to make first! LOL

Deneen - My current design is so simple I'm almost ashamed to show it. I need to work something up that's more involved, I thinK!

Leisel - See, that's when you change the pattern! No way would I wear a top that's cut down to there. If & when I do make it, half of that plunge will be filled in! As I see it, that would be a pretty easy fix. :)

Thanks, Vera - I'll definitely research the errata before I get started on a pattern!
