Hello, friends. Hope you are all having a wonderful day.
After a long four (?) months I am finally finished with the temperature blanket I made for Joe's birthday. It began on the day he was born and ended on his first birthday. I went to Weather Underground to get the temperatures for the entire year. What a big job this was. I am still weaving in the ends from changing colors, but even that is almost done. So here is the blanket in all its glory.
May 20-31, 1958
May 1-20, 1959
I don't think I will ever do one this way again. It is large. Very, very large. About 9 or 10 feet long (approximately 3 meters long). And very thick and heavy. Joe says it is perfect for winter when he will double it and have a very warm blanket. I'm glad he likes it.
I took the high temperature for each day and knit a row that color,
90-99 degrees - light blue
80-89 degrees - aqua blue
70-79 degrees - light green
60-69 degrees - dark green
50-59 degrees - pool blue
40-49 degrees - delft blue
30-39 degrees - country blue
20-29 degrees - white
The navy stripes separated the months.
