I finally did it. I finished the temperature afghan tonight. It turned out beautiful. I know you are anxious to see it, so here goes. Remember, I outlined each month in white.
You can see there were some beautiful pink 80*F days at the beginning of the month.
Some yellow 70*F days at the beginning of the month and then a lot of light green 60*F days and dark green 50*F days. There's some light blue 40*F days in there too.
Not a lot of warmer days here and even a lot of gray 20*F days at the end of the month.
I got Joe to help me spread it out on the bed. It still needs to be washed and blocked, but I wanted to take a look at it. I think it's so pretty.
It sure tells a story of our year. I never realized how warm we are in the summer and how cold in the winter until this. And we really don't have much of a spring at all.
I really enjoyed making this. I liked doing it so much that I joined a temperature blanket group on facebook. What a great group of people and what a diverse amount of blankets. People do them all sorts of ways. Some use the high temperature of the day as I did. Some use the high and the low. Some will put white threads in the days that it snows and blue in the days that it rains. People make their blankets with stripes, diagonals, blocks sewn together, blocks knit together, round, and so much more. I'm trying to decide how to do my new afghan this year.
