Crochet, Temperature blanket

May temperature blanket summary

The months just seem to fly by, we are now half way through the year and half way through my temperature blanket! It’s been a fun project to make, seeing the variations of temperatures and how that works up a unique colour scheme. It’s also super fun to see other peoples take on the year long CAL.

You can see all my previous posts HERE

This month has been quite warm! we aren’t far off Summer now, which isn’t my favourite season, but I think I will love the way the colours will appear on my temperature blanket. I’m still in two minds about the light green/slightly bluish looking yarn, but when it’s with the other colours, I think it seems to blend in quite nicely!

Just to remind you all, I’m crocheting a row a day, based on the highest temp from the hours of 7am-10pm. Here is my colour range:

I’m using mostly Stylecraft Special DK, with a few odd balls in different brands, you can find the full list of the colour choices HERE. As I already had most of the colours in my stash, some partly used, I’m not completely sure on how much yarn I’ve used; but, I do know I have used one full ball of both Turquoise and Plum; good job those colours won’t be used for a while, as I am yet to purchase some more!

Here’s my chart for the month:Screenshot 2017-05-31 at 17.57.07 - Edited
