calorimetry, my dear watson

In the spirit of keeping my head warm, I decided to whip up one of these natty little headbands last night.

What I should have done is checked the wide world of web first for any alterations...

...because it soon became apparent that this thing is freakin' huge!


I swatched, I got gauge, I proceeded fearlessly.

Now all I need is an afro to fill it!

I have no doubt my head will be warm, though...

(and, yes, that is a glimpse of sun in Melbourne! stranger than fiction...)
