If you have been following the blog you will know that 2017 saw the creation of a number of blankets as a sideline to the initial Temperature Blanket. These were created around the colours of the month, in various random designs. Below are just a few.
Thirteen blankets were made, an extra one for the third week of January which threw up some very pretty colours, and a fourteenth is currently in the pipeline – a general roundup of the 12 months.
December 2017 was therefore the last month of the year, but not actually part of the original idea. As a result I had a different plan, and that has proved very interesting.
It’s just about finished. Each block is a comparison between the date last year and this – the current year being the outer colours. I used Parchment as the linking colour. Just the last strip to join and then a little border. This is the foundation of my plan for the Spirit of the month blankets for 2018.
