Fall Flat Rate Box Exchange

I wanted to make something my partner would really like and could use, but I didn't have weeks and weeks to dedicate to it. I decided to make another Calorimetry. I keep saying I am going to make one for myself, but it still hasn't happened. It seems a little wide, or it did when I put it on to model for the photo, but lengthwise it buttoned in place perfectly. I just happened to have a burgundy button that exactly matched the yarn, very fortuitous.
I've really been enjoying the flat rate box swaps. You are required to stuff a medium flat rate box with goodies, at least one of which must be handmade. See the pretty copper colored yarn? Bridget dyed that and its a bamboo yarn. So soft and really pretty!
So I am still determined to make a calorimetry for myself. I was looking this morning and some single skeins I had received in various swaps and I think that might be a perfect project for one of those. I am also thinking that I might need to go down to size 6 needles next time, if the yarn is of similar weight to the one I just made.

Anyhow, I really hope fotopet liked it!
