So I jumped on the bandwagon at the start of the year and decided to make a temperature blanket. The basic idea is that everyday you do 1 row and the colour that you do is based on the temperature. Some people do two rows a day, one for the highest and one for the lowest temperatures. I have decided to just go by the temperature at noon on that day.
I am using Stylecraft Special DK. and my key is as follows (all temperature in Celsius):
<= 0 Purple
1-3 Dark Blue
4-6 Light Blue
7-10 Dark Green
11-14 Light Green
28+ Bright Pink
Now given lovely (haha) Scottish weather I highly doubt I’ll get to use the bright pink, so I may well just border the whole blanket with it since I’ll have plenty left over.
So we are at the start of May I decided to post a pic of the blanket 4 months in. The blanket is only wide enough for one person and below you can read the blanket left to right. You can see that it’s getting warmer and we had ONE DAY where the temperature was 15 which allowed me to bust out the yellow. Oh that was a happy day.
You might remember the Scrap Scarf I had made back in November. Well I unravelled it all and decided to make a blanket with it and kept adding more and more scraps until it was big enough for our double bed. It’s pretty ugly but cosy and warm.
Made with James C Brett’s Marble Chunky in MC38. I think I used 2 balls of this.
I loved the idea of this design from the crochet crowd and bought up the Cool Ocean Breeze kit. I learned a lot of new techniques in this and decided to follow the video walk through Mikey did rather than follow the written instructions that came with the kit. The pattern is FREE and you can pick any colours you like! You can find more info here
I made this Brain Waves beanie hat for my hubby for the winter. Pattern here.
I made this for our Christmas party at work. I bought some new pom pom makers to make the baubles and put some cheap tinsel and fairy lights around it. Not the best picture in the world but it was hard to take a good photo myself. I found the pattern here on Ravelry.
Crochet Ewok for brother-in-law for Christmas. I made him a Yoda a few years back and he’s been pestering me for an Ewok ever since. Can’t believe it’s taken me years to get this week guy done! He looks super weird without his hood!
