Temperature Blanket 2016



Happy New Year to everyone (sorry I'm a few weeks late)!  I was going to hold off on posting this until the end of next year, but I have been loving this project so much that I wanted to share it will all of you now.  Have you seen the posts about temperature blankets floating around social media?  The thought behind it is that you crochet (or knit) a row every day.  The color can change daily and will be determined by the temperature at noon.  This project is EASY and is something everyone can do.  It takes me about 10-15 minutes a day to crochet my row and I look forward to it every day.

Below I've included the color key that I am using.  Even though we are almost through January, you still have plenty of time to get caught up and continue this awesome project throughout the year!

BEFORE GETTING STARTED!
Make sure that you are able to purchase ALL of the yarn for this project LOCALLY.  I started off using colors recommended by others who have made these blankets and was initially ordering them online.  BIG MISTAKE! The cost to ship these inexpensive balls of yarn is way too much and there is nothing worse than running out of yarn and waiting a week for it to be delivered.

I bought all of my yarn at Walmart and used Super Saver Economy Yarn by Red Heart.

If you're looking for a record of your past temperatures, WeatherUnderground has a great resource of temperatures by hour.

Have fun!

  3. I love this and am stealing the idea! Sadly, here in the sweltering south I'm gonna need a 90+ and a 100+ color too...though I may just switch the purple for that, it never gets under freezing here! Awesome project idea!

  5. This seems as if though it would be a really large blanket- 365 rows (or 730 for granny stitch). Did yours end up being massive?

  6. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Cancer,Hiv_ Aids,Herpes,Copd,Diabetes,Hepatitis,I read about him online how he cure Tasha and Tara so i contacted him on drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com even talked on whatsapps +2348149277967 believe me it was easy i drank his herbal medicine for two weeks and i was cured just like that isn't Dr Itua a wonder man? Yes he is! I thank him so much so i will advise if you are suffering from one of those diseases Pls do contact him he's a nice man.
