Temperature Blanket Update 2019: February

Hey Dearies! So, if you have been following my daily squares on Facebook, you will know that I was going to do the update yesterday, but I totally forgot about it, so I’m doing it now!

February has come and left us and I wanted to show you guys what the blanket looks now!

What my temperature blanket looks now! This is both January and February together!

As you can see, this blanket is going to get pretty big and I didn’t realize it until now. My granny squares are 5 rows, tall and wide, so this blanket is going to get super big! It might actually be too big, but it will definitely warm me up on a cold winters day!

If you haven’t already noticed, there has been a new color in the mix, so let me explain. Due to not being able to get the store to go get the color yarn, I had to end up changing it. Plus, I didn’t want to put the blanket on hold when it came time to crochet the squares together.

This light purple that I switched it to will still represent as a 20 degrees color, it just isn’t as light as the color before it.

Hopefully, this will be the only color change that I will end up doing. I’ve planned it out, so if I start getting really low on a particular color, I am going to grab or order another roll the next time I go to the store.

Anyway, here is the colors and what they will represent:

20181222_124142
100 degrees – Fire Red (I Love This Yarn)
90 degrees – Pumpkin (Red Heart Super Saver)
80 degrees – Bright Yellow (Red Heart Super Saver)
70 degrees – Jelly Bean (I Love This Yarn)
60 degrees – Green (Main Stays Basic Yarn)
50 degrees – Turqia (Red Heart Super Saver)
40 degrees – Soft Blue (I Love This Yarn)
30 degrees – Dark Orchid (Red Heart Super Saver)
20 degrees – Orchid (I Love This Yarn) *Changed to the following – Orchid (Red Heart Super Saver)
10 and below – Light Gray (I Love This Yarn)         *Note: Due to one of the color changes, I won’t be updating this picture, the only one that has changed is the 20 degrees one and there is a note, with the new color I’ll be using.*

 

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?

We actually reached another 50-degree day, but as usual, it doesn’t last long. Hopefully, in March we will start to see more days starting to warm up!

What was the lowest temperature for this month?

Well, we reach single digits, but the way my temperature blanket is set up, we can’t really tell, other than it would be a light gray square!

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.

If you haven’t liked my Facebook Page, here is the link below! It keeps you posted and updated on my temperature blanket and any updates for my blog and YouTube channel, as well!

~Marie’s Hope~

Marie’s P.O.V.
I woke up in the hospital. I guess I fainted, but I knew what was happening. I was dying. Nothing could save me now. Nothing could. I looked over to see my brother and Jade by the side of the bed. Tanner was holding my hand.
“How you feeling?” Jade asked as my brother looked up and saw that I was awake. How long had I been out for?
“I feel…Weak.” I said. I did. Every bone in my body felt cold, like I was starting to die. I can’t die. Not now.
“As long as you are alive, that’s all that matters.” Tanner said and kissed the top of my forehead. “Do you want something to eat? I’m gonna go down to the cafe and get some coffee.”
“If they have sour cream and onion chips, that would be great.” I said. Tanner looked over to Jade and she replied, “Water and maybe just some fruit.” As he left the room, Jade sat down in the chair that Tanner was sitting in.
“You are going to be a wonderful mother. I can already see it.” I said, then coughed. “You’re good for my brother. I haven’t seen him this happy in a long time.”
“Thank you, and you will be a wonderful godmother.” Once Jade spoke those words, my eyes watered. She is letting me be a godmother? The only thing that’s wrong with that is that I won’t be there for my niece and nephew. As soon as she saw me crying, she spoke again. “Please don’t cry, I wasn’t trying to make you cry, I just wanted you to know. I haven’t told Tanner yet.”
“I’m crying because I won’t even make it threw the night. Tonight is my last night on this Earth. Nothing can save me. Unless, no, that won’t work.” I coughed again, this time I felt that I was coughing up a lung.
“What? Tell me, anything that might be able to save your life. I’ll do anything.” Jade asked. The only way that I could escape death would be to drink a vampire’s blood, but their are none in the area. I’ve checked.

“It won’t work, Jade. There are no vampire’s in town.” I said as Tanner came in.
“What about them?” Tanner asked, giving Jade her water and fruit and me my sour cream and onion chips. “They aren’t real.”
“So you think.” I said. “They are real, one of my good friend’s is one, but he lives very far away.” As I said that a strange guy walked into the room. I knew exactly who he was. Eli Litton.

Such a cliffhanger! Next chapter will be out on Monday! If you can’t wait until then, you can always go to Wattpad and search katieasehl, you will find Unclear and other works that I have worked on or what I am currently working on. Unclear is slowly coming to an end and I want to know if I should make a sequel or just post one of my other works.
