Weather blanket


#21

I made up my colors and now I have to get my yarn. I am very excited to start. I am going to do a High Low Blanket that sound so interesting.

Lucky I had my first color so at least I did chain 300 and half the first row. 13 1/2 more days to catch up, lol!


#22

Finally got all of my yarn, I’m on day 2, lol!


#23

Enjoy. Mine has more then half of aqua (33-43*) then it dropped last night and i got to add first row of lt purple :wink: there is a few days of other colors here and there. I sew snowflake buttons on a day that it is snowing. Considered changing stitch for each month, but may not look right. Might do something like a row single crochet white between monthes, probably will put “2019” on it somehow also :slight_smile:

I’m in Illinois and it is a beautiful 1 degree this morning. :unamused:


#25

@Michelle58 I am on day 16 with one side high and the other low. I don’t know if I like it but I am going to finish it like this. I was thinking about alternating sides per month but I think I will just see this out to the end, lol. I will post a pic once I get caught up on the days. I’m using mostly grey, blue, brown, green, yellow, orange and red. With our weather being mostly in the 30s and 40s also, I have a lot of tan and lt green. I was also thinking of adding buttons for birthdays. Little crochet snowflakes would be pretty. I’ll have to think about that. My daughter said I should put City, State, and Year on it somehow. I’ll probably do that somewhere in the middle of June/July. Again thanks for this idea I am having a lot of fun along with my Looming, painting and rooting!

I really like your color choice and the idea of buttons for birthdays! Think i May steal that idea myself​:star_struck: awaiting your pictures :yum:


#28

I’ve been trying to put this pic up for a few days. I am further along now, lol.


You can click on the pic to see it better.


#29

I really like this :yum:so interesting w the high and low :yum:

I haven’t started mine yet. But I’m keeping track of the weather. Mine is already going to be very colorful…especially if I decide to add the lows too. Texas’ bipolar weather will look pretty translated into a blanket. :grin:


#31

Really nice !! I like the idea but think I have way too many things to start something else right now look forward to seeing yours finished.


#32

@marrabo Just one row a day, you could make a scarf if you want to do something on a smaller scale.
I need to see how big it will be on my bed. I did not check that.
@Katinafleming that is varied and will be pretty.


#33

I never even thought of doing something small like a scarf! With my arm swelling I had to quite my yarn projects all together. But 1 row a day on a very small project would be very doable. I just wish it wasn’t so far into the year already.


#34

You don’t have to start on the first of January, you can start now and keep going for a month next year!

I was wondering if there was somewhere I could go for that information, thank you!


#37

That is very true… I am going to take your advice and think a little abstract about this project…


#38

@Reefbubbles It wouldn’t take that long to catch up doing 2 a day till caught up on a scarf. If it gets too long end in June and make another or not.


#39

I was thinking about the too long issue. Maybe I can make one using all DK weight yarn. I usually hate using yarn that thin just because it takes so long to make something but this way I can have the look I love without all the struggle.

Yes and it will be pretty!
