animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook


I finally finished my temperature blanket last weekend! For my temperature blanket, I knitted a two row pattern each day, in a color that corresponded to the day’s high temperature. I used 10 degree ranges for my colors (so, temperatures in the 50s were one color, temperatures in the 60s another, and so on). It took about 35 minutes a day to do this, so that’s over 200 hours for the blanket! There was a lot of yarn involved and I had to buy extra multiple times because I had to guesstimate how much yarn to buy for each color range (I used the previous year’s data) and the weather did not match my estimate.
