I have decided to undertake
yet another a rather momentous project. . . and am looking for your help!
Perhaps you have heard of the temperature scarf? As in, you knit/crochet a row a day in various colors depending on the temperature out-of-doors? ...(seen on revelry, with bernat yarn, and several bloggers' attempts.)
Well, I would much rather have something more all-purpose-and-all-encompassing, so my goal for January1st - December 31st of 2014 is to crochet a blanket (potentially 10 foot long, enough for couch-warmers to share/stay warm) with a row-a-day based on the temperature.
Here are my color choices, and the temperatures I chose to associate with those colors:
(All yarn is Caron Simply Soft, found at Michaels, Joanns, Walmart, and online retailers).
|100F and higher: Autumn Red|
|75-79F: Bone (also used in another afghan I am trying to finish)...|
|65-74F: Sunshine (because I hope to have lots of sun this coming year, obviously!)|
|45-54F: Light Country Blue|
|33-44F: Blue Mint|
|below 0F: Passion|
Please let me know in an e-mail (if you have my address), FB message (if we're friends), or a comment if you would like to donate some yarn, and I will message you my address if you will be willing to be so fantastic as to join me in this! ... and share this post with your friends, and maybe we can keep this fun little (well, large) trend going!
