Hey Dearies! If you have been following me on my Facebook page, you would’ve noticed that I was behind on my daily squares, due to running out of yarn, which can happen when doing a temperature blanket!
Anyway, let’s talk about how this month went, we are FINALLY getting some warmer days and we also had our very first 60-degree day, which was also on the last day of the month.
January, February, and March!
So, if you are wondering how big this blanket is going to get, well, it’s going to get pretty big! This blanket is also being laid on a King size bed, so by the time this blanket will be finished, it will most likely go over the sides and fit perfectly on the bed.
We already have about 90 squares on this blanket. In the upcoming month of April, we will be able to start seeing different colors since it is beginning to warm up and make it feel like spring!
Also, you might have noticed a slight color change for my dark purple, this one also one of the colors that I did up end up running out of and had to substitute it with a different type of purple.
It’s still the same Red Heart brand, but a different line of yarn, so I will add that to the list of colors, as well. Hopefully, I won’t have to make any more color changes to this temperature blanket, but it is my first one, so mistakes are bound to happen.
Just in case you want to see what the colors will start to look like, as the temperatures get warmer:
How do you tell which color to use?
I, personally, go with the overall temperature. So, let’s go by today, for example.
Today in Maine, the overall temperature is 17 degrees. I would choose the light gray.
Let’s say that it was an overall temperature of 22 degrees, I would choose the Orchid color. All my temperatures, for my colored yarn, has to have the same number first number. If that makes any sense, I’m sorry if it doesn’t!
What was the highest temperature for this month?
Well on the last day of March, we got a 60-degree day! So, the light green is just the beginning of what temperatures will start to look like in the upcoming weeks!
What was the lowest temperature for this month?
So, our lowest temperature was actually 20-degrees, but on those days, it felt a lot colder than that!
Do you post daily updates?
Yes, I do. On my Facebook page, I post a picture of the square for each day. I also tried to post every week’s worth, but it was hard to keep track of, so I’ll be posting monthly and daily instead.
