temperature blanket day 3

  • Posted on January 3, 2019 at 1:14 pm

after much dithering and changing my mind on how to do this, i realized that by only recording the high temps, i would have very few squares with my favorite colors- all those represented by the bottom colors, plus we often have wide temperature changes here, and i wanted to somehow show how great the change was in a single day. so i am doing the middle three rows as the high, then a 4th row as the low for the day, surrounded by a sc row of black. the squares with be joined with more black
by crocheting in the ends as i go. that way i should have at most one black end per day to weave in.

here is my final (i think) set of colors and the temperatures they represent. i expanded the range so i could use up more odds and ends of yarn instead of new balls.

26-27 ravelry red (malabrigo lace)
22-25 fuscia (malabrigo lace)

3-5 applegreen (malabrigo lace)

-5 to -8 button jar blue (prairie)
-9 to -12 nassau blue (prairie)
-13 to -16 cian (malabrigo lace)
-17 to -19 azul bolita (malabrigo lace)

back at last?

please forgive me for my long absence, these last few months have been challenging to say the least. my middle child has had some serious health issues that have taken up most of my time. we are hoping/praying that he is stable right now and i may be able to get back to making doll stuff and checking in to my various forums on the net, at least a little bit, anyway.

so one of my favorite yarn stores eatsleepknit is having their yearly yarnathon, and this year looks like a winner as far as i’m concerned. they are allowing us to add projects together for the kals, cals and booster club prizes, so i can work on my doll stuff and actually have it count! 🙂 🙂 🙂

i’ve started a new blanket for the girls couch. i’m only being cautiously optimistic ’cause i started a christmas one O_O. and i’m working on some shawls that will hopefully get done in time to wear before summer hits. everything is being done in malabrigo lace so far. its the softest lace yarn i know of that doesn’t have cashmere in it, and eatsleepknit has tons of colors!

here’s a sneak peek at my christmas blankie.
snowflakes on a snowy road
i worked on it over the holidays, so took my “on the road” pic already in hopes that they have that badge again this year. if not it seemed appropriate anyway to do a snowflake afghan in the snow.
