Last week I introduced to you my year-long crochet project: a Temperature Blanket. It’s been so much fun choosing colours and watching them change from day to day, especially with our crazy “El Nino” weather this year!
Here’s a picture of the progress so far. Lots of grey (0 to +6 Celsius) and even a row of green (7 degrees!), then two lovely rows of white for our very snowy days. I don’t think I’ll do an entire row of white unless it’s a decent amount of snow, which it was.
I’m also planning to do special days with a silver thread added to the colour (birthdays, anniversaries), as a way to commemorate it. Some people add a special colour for someone who passed away or some significant live event has occurred.
In case you’re wondering, for my temperature blanket, I’m using Groovy Ghan pattern (or Apache Tears), single crochets, 200 stitches, with a 3.75mm hook. I’m using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn.
If this project interests you, do some Pinterest searches. There are lots of great ideas out there, including a sky blanket (different colours for the sky each day) or a temperature blanket for an important year (birth of a child, anniversary, etc.). There’s also a fun Facebook group I belong to which is dedicated to Temperature Blankets all around the world – let me know, and I can send you the link for it!
