I'd seen a zillion people make the calorimetry and it looks so cute on them! On me? Not so much.
I reduced the number of cast on stitches like people have recommended, but that wasn't the problem. I used some of my favorite yarn in one of my favorite colors, but that wasn't the problem either. It just wasn't... me.
However, as long as I live in the frozen tundra (aka Michigan), I'll wear this guy.
