the measurement of heat lost or gained

calorimetry

I needed a new winter hat, but I have long hair, calorimetry sounded like the perfect solution.

At first I couldn't get gauge with recommended needles, at least I don't think I could, what the hell does "slightly stretched" mean? Why can't people just give gauge in stockinet?

Anyways, went down to size 6 and also used only 100 stitches, as my head is not 24" around, more like 22"

And it fits perfectly! I braided my tails instead of weaving them in so that I wouldn't have to use a button. I don't know how everyone else manages it, but I would never be able to wear a button there without my hair getting hopelessly tangled in it, a nice simple knot works much better, and I like the way it looks.

I love those colours!

I get away with a button on my Calorimetry because my hair is still short. Now that I'm growing it long again, I need to make another one with tie-able cords.

thanks!

the ties are awesome, but you have to be exact on size, because it's difficult to make it tighter.

I made a calorimetry last year, and it's got a button. My hair doesn't get tangled in it because my hair is worn up. So my hair will be contained in a bun, and it buttons underneath the bun, and it doesn't slip up into the bun at all, so there's never been a problem. But the tie looks cute :-)

The thing with mine is that it never, ever stays on my ears, so I've started wearing it in combo with a pair of ear muffs.
