This year I am making a temperature blanket! I have chosen to make my blanket using the midday temperature, as defined by the Met Office app on my phone, at my home location. I have an alarm set for 12.01pm each day and at this point I check the app and either record the temperature in my bullet journal or screenshot it to record when it is more convenient. Then I crochet one row per day using the temperature and the following scale.
You can find more information about the stitches, yarn and overall process in the post Temperature Blanket 2018 – January Update.
Are you ready to see July? It is very exciting…
Look at all that lovely, sunshiney, yellow! And what’s that I see? It’s orange! I got a new colour!
The heatwave which began in June bringing above average temperatures to much of the UK, continued on throughout most of July meaning the midday temperature didn’t drop below 16 degrees celsius and we hit a high of 26.
As I seem to write every month, the temperatures did get up much higher later on in the day, right up into the red yarn colours, but midday was a fair bit cooler than the daily high and that is reflected in the colours of my blanket.
I love the way the whole blanket is looking so much. From the dark blues back at the start of the year, past the purples of the cold snap which brought us the snow, waiting for what felt like the longest winter ever to end and spring to finally bring the greens and from there into the yellows of summer. Will August bring me a row of red? How will the rest of the summer look? I am so excited to find out!
