In late December, a friend of mine shared a Facebook post about making a crocheted 'Temperature Blanket'. I like crocheting and am always on the lookout for a new project so I dove into the Pinterest world and this is what I found.
The afghan is made by crocheting one line a day using a specific color that corresponds to the high temperature of the day.
0-10 degrees = Dark Orchid
11-20 degrees = Royal Blue
21-30 degrees = Delft Blue
31-40 degrees = Light Blue
41-50 degrees = Minty
51-60 degrees = Spring Green
61-70 degrees = Bright Yellow
71-80 degrees = Pumpkin
81-90 degrees = Cherry Red
91-100 degrees = Burgundy
Every morning I hop onto the Weather Channel to check what the high temperature was for the day before and crochet my line. With the wacky winter weather we've been having is making for an interesting start to my afghan.
(The 'Light Blue' and 'Minty' don't photograph very well but in person the difference is there.)
I look forward to adding a line every day and can't wait to see what kind of off the wall pattern emerges. My only concern is... Please, Dear Lord, do not let it get above 100 degrees this summer because 1. I can't handle it.
2. I don't have another color option for that kind of temperature!
