Just one more day to the new year. I have no idea where the time went. Did it just fly by for you too?
A few months back I saw on one of my knitting sites the idea to make a temperature scarf. You start off with 5 rows of white and then pick a color for each so many degrees of temperature. They were in Europe so were using every 5 degrees Celesus. I chose to use every 10 degrees Fahrenheit since I am more familiar with that. Then I saw that you could also make an afghan that way. I thought that would be more practical for me since I have lots of scarves, so I changed to that.
The idea is that each day you knit or crochet one row of color showing the high temperature for that day. Here is a sample chart of colors you could use. I chose different colors, but the idea is the same.
And here is a picture I found of one that someone else did.
I am finding this idea fascinating. Each afghan would be different since people live in different areas with different temperatures and can choose whatever colors they want. At the end of each month I will be taking a picture of my afghan to show you. It will be fun to see it change from the blues of winter to the greens of spring and on to the reds of summer. I hope you will enjoy seeing the afghan grow.
