Another blog I read regularly is written by Jocelyn, a college English instructor in Duluth. Her writing is wonderful -- entertaining and thoughtful and funny. She mentioned recently that she has had to wear a scarf in the house to stay warm. For some unknown reason I pictured her in a babushka -- don't judge me -- and promptly volunteered to knit her something to help the cause of indoor warmth (and to show my appreciation for all the hours I have enjoyed her blog). As I was weaving in the ends last week I realized that she had probably been talking about a muffler-type scarf. Duh.
But I made her a Calorimetry, which Smokey and Andrew delivered to her on Thursday when they went on a scouting trip to Duluth. Andrew will do a one-month family practic rotation in April at a hospital and clinic associated with the University of Minnesota - Duluth, and he wanted to go check out housing, see the medical facilities, and tour the city.
A sudden attack of camnesia prevented me from taking a picture of the Cal before I sent it off, but Jocelyn blogged it today with awesome photos. Which I stole present here.
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden; #252? #270? Ball band = gone. I fiddled with the yarn, pulling out several yards of black-ish so as to have more blue and green and to make the color repeat more-or-less symmetric.
Pattern: Calorimetry. Jocelyn measured her head for me -- 23-1/4" -- and I cast on 96 st.
Needles: US#7. Or maybe #6. Memory fails.
