Another instant gratification project (if by "instant" you mean "knit this thing three times.") It's Calorimetry from Knitty, in Noro Silk Garden. The first time I knit this, even though I got gauge, it turned out HUGE. So I ripped out the entire thing and started over. I knit a few rows, and it was obviously too small. So finally I cast on 104 stitches on needles 2 sizes smaller than called for, and its just right. Even though it's never really cold enough for hats outside here in Southern New Mexico, it is cold enough for hats inside. We keep the heater down low, and end up bundling up inside to compensate.

(Interesting fact: currently on Ravelry, 3,163 Calorimetries have been made. WOW!)
