A mustard Calorimetry... for me!

Finally I knitted myself a Calorimetry... for the winter when it didn't get oh so freezingly chilly, so it has remained mostly unworn. I needed an easy poolside make, and I think this was my second project  since P started swimming training, so this was made possibly October time
 The calorimetry is a free Ravelry pattern by Kathryn Schoendorf, with these changes by Moolala as the original makes too big a knit for my, or any of my friend's, heads. Maybe we all have small heads...
The wool is Rowan pure wool aran in banana. Not mustard. So this should be my banana calorimetry, and actually the shape pictured above is sort of banana-bent shape. Though this shade is most un-banana like and most definitely mustard. I think this wool may sadly be discontinued now, this was purchased an age ago - for this very knit - when there was still a yarn shop in Woodbridge. Which there hasn't been for years. Oh, and a vintage button


  1. It's a great pattern, one of the most original headbands I've seen. I also love that colour. Definitely more like mustard than banana!

    1. Thank you for agreeing about its mustardness... I feel somehow happier about having a mustard headband/ear warmer than a banana one. It may even get another wear over the next few days as it's decidedly chilly in Suffolk!
