How are you all? We have had a bit of sunshine and blue skies here. It certainly lifts the spirits. I hope you are all safe and warm, and avoiding problems caused by the pandemic. I’m still using crochet as my craft therapy, and apart from dreary Reynauds it’s certainly helped to keep my spirits up!

I wasn’t going to bother with a a temperature blanket this year, but as January 1 dawned I instinctively picked up a ball of Grape yarn to denote -2C! I was hooked already! Last year I made a square for each day. Below is the Winter blanket. On the left is December, so there – centre stage – is January. It begins under the dark blue square and ends with the light blue square. It’s a format which works well, but I felt like a change.

The winter months do eat up Blue and Biolet yarns, however, and stocks are fairly low here, so I’ve decided on another plan, and it’s so quick to keep up to date that I’m going to continue.

Each square represents three days, so above is up to date! Eighteen days of temperatures. I’m working it alongside the second Friendship Blanket which is coming along slowly but ‘nicely’.

The squares are simple (further details are on the Friendship Blanket Begins post) and using combinations suggested by others isn’t the least bit daunting.

  • Violet
  • Toy and
  • Apricot

have just been added to:

  • Clematis
  • Wisteria
  • Duck Egg
  • Pistachio
  • Sherbet
  • Parma Violet
  • Magenta
  • Apple and
  • Lavender

All squares are eithe one or two colours – so feel free to choose from the above if you would like to be included.

There will be more about the first blanket in my next post.

    I/we are doing well, thank you. I’ve been working on my Friendship Blanket, but there have been a few distractions. We had a winter advisory that didn’t turn out to be as bad as they anticipated, but we did get a couple of inches of snow. Glad you’re feeling better.

    I love watching your blankets grow and the colours that you use together. It often gives me courage to use colours that I wouldn’t normally use together because I have seen them work for you.

    1. I always try to use a little colour theory – but not so much that it becomes stereotype. A purist may not agree with the result – but so what? 😂. Thanks for commenting Linda
