At last, a ta-dah! I don't seem to have done one for ages now. The temperature blanket I made has been nearly finished since January. I had popped it away just for the edging to be finished and promptly forgot about it.
If you haven't come across a temperature blanket before it's really easy. Record the average temperature every day and make a square accordingly. Some people make stripes, I went for simple Granny Squares. I added white in the middle for snow, blue for rain and yellow for sun.
Mine started on the 12th January 2017 ~ bottom right in the picture with a temperature of 2 degrees and snow.
It finished on 7th January 2018 ~ top left with a temperature of 2 degrees and no snow.I used a weather app to find the average temperature wherever I happened to be.
In 2017 (where I was) we had only had two days of zero degrees and the highest that I recorded was the 31st June when it got to 31 degrees.
I have really enjoyed the whole process, it made me think a lot more about what's going on around me. I've also enjoyed colouring dots with my Sharpies.
If you're feeling inspired why not head on over to Pinterest where there are some beautiful examples. I really like the striped ones but for me, one square a day was more manageable.
I'm now working five days instead of four until the end of the summer term so I have to squeeze even more into the weekends, no catching up on missed TV on a Friday. Master Clicky and me are trying to get some hard landscaping done in the garden but as he's plays cricket both days of the weekend usually, it's a bit tricky!
Have a great week, I'm off to catch up with your blogs now.
Bye for now..............Clicky Needles.
