Soft warm yumminess...

And it's all for me!! I made Calorimetry today all for my self! (Gee can you tell I have been knitting lots of gifts lately?) It knit up so fast, I made it one afternoon. (didn't even start till almost 4PM and was done by 9, with 2 kids and a husband to take care of )

I absolutely love the yarn, it is so fun to work with. Super soft and shows stitch detail amazingly well. I used SWS in the color Natural Plum, with size 8 addi turbo's. I modified the pattern by only doing 5 repeats of the increases and 7 repeats of the decreases, to make it fit for me. I know there are some problems with it being to big for some people, and if I had done the 15 and 17 repeats like it said it would have fit a gorilla I think, LOL.

I love the way the stripes look, as well as the way they go into points at the corners. This will be my new last minute gift!!
