Temperature Blanket 2016



Happy New Year to everyone (sorry I'm a few weeks late)!  I was going to hold off on posting this until the end of next year, but I have been loving this project so much that I wanted to share it will all of you now.  Have you seen the posts about temperature blankets floating around social media?  The thought behind it is that you crochet (or knit) a row every day.  The color can change daily and will be determined by the temperature at noon.  This project is EASY and is something everyone can do.  It takes me about 10-15 minutes a day to crochet my row and I look forward to it every day.

Below I've included the color key that I am using.  Even though we are almost through January, you still have plenty of time to get caught up and continue this awesome project throughout the year!

BEFORE GETTING STARTED!
Make sure that you are able to purchase ALL of the yarn for this project LOCALLY.  I started off using colors recommended by others who have made these blankets and was initially ordering them online.  BIG MISTAKE! The cost to ship these inexpensive balls of yarn is way too much and there is nothing worse than running out of yarn and waiting a week for it to be delivered.

I bought all of my yarn at Walmart and used Super Saver Economy Yarn by Red Heart.

If you're looking for a record of your past temperatures, WeatherUnderground has a great resource of temperatures by hour.

Have fun!

  3. I love this and am stealing the idea! Sadly, here in the sweltering south I'm gonna need a 90+ and a 100+ color too...though I may just switch the purple for that, it never gets under freezing here! Awesome project idea!
