Colors for a Temperature Blanket


Here’s the cool temperature palette for my Temperature Blanket. As I mentioned in As if I Needed Another Project…., I don’t expect to need colors beyond the 53F range for a while, so I haven’t planned for the warmer weather colors yet.


I decided to buy myself a little calendar to keep track of the temperatures. Even though I’ve convinced myself I will crochet my row every evening after I find out the temperature, I know me, and am pretty sure I might get behind a few rows….hence the calendar. Yesterday evening, after I found out our high temperature was 29F, I dug out the “eggplant” color (Lion Brand Heartland’s #147 Hot Springs) and crocheted my first row of a simple ripple pattern. Then, I set the project down, picked up my Checking Beading off the List! shawl and knit a few rows on that for the rest of the evening. I CAN handle another project when I only have to worry about 1 row per night… theory….we’ll see how it works out…..

Don’t forget, if you think this is a project you might like to do (remember….just one row per evening….), join us on Facebook….




Hi! I'm Lori! Welcome to my little corner of the blogging world! My hubby and I live on a small farm in Eastern Oregon with 5 cats (it's a LONG story), 3 horses and a mule. I work full-time as a department lead at the nursery department of a local hardware store. You'll discover I have wa-a-a-ay too many hobbies for the amount of "spare time" I have. So, I'll just keep muddling though this life.....
