2017 Temperature Blanket Ta-Dah!

Hello there!

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.  

Unfortunately I ran out of red for 20-23 degrees and had to match it the best I could.  

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.


  1. Good job on your temperature blanket! I'm working on my Lucy Woodland blanket today.. it's taking me forever! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. I really love the blanket. It is a fantastic idea and I love how yours turned out.

  3. Your blanket is brilliant!! Love it!

  4. Bravo! I want to make one of these one day, and I greatly admire the one you have made! xx

  5. Priced affordably and offered in an array of styles and weights, you may rest assured Rocabi has a blanket to agree with your needs perfectly on

  6. They also have a positive effect on the hormone levels. They help, so we have created a chart with the lighter side of how much weight you should order to the heavier side of what you should order, depending on your weight. Source for more about best weighted blankets.


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
