wp-1483529016772.jpgIt’s done!  We finished the temperature blanket yesterday.  Boy was that a project….lots of fun but it did require determination to finish.  I used single crochet for the majority of blanket but I did do a double crochet – chain one to separate the months.  I also used a bobble/popcorn stitch on the snow days.  I love how it turned out….but it is really long!  I will probably turn up the bottom and stitch the sides to create a pocket for my feet since I plan to use it as a lap throw.  Now to decide what to do for 2017…maybe a scarf!

wp-1453546813333.jpgA “HOT” (pun intended) idea flying around the internet right now for crocheters and knitters is a temperature blanket. It’s a really “COOL” (there I go again) idea.

Here’s the concept: Choose 8-12 colors of yarn in a weight that you like. Choose a pattern that you like. One with a small stitch would be best since you are going to be crocheting one row for every day of the year. Then based on the high temperature for the day you will use the color assigned to that temp to crochet a row in your blanket. Fun, huh?!

Here is the start of mine.  Want more information to do yours (it’s never too late to start) then click here for the chart  and instructions.
