My 2013 Temperature Project
 
We are making Temperature Projects as a KAL/CAL in the Bernat Forums. I am using Bernat Denimstyle yarn for mine, and have finished through March so far. I have been knitting two rows for the low temps, two rows for the high temps, and two more rows if it rains, snows, or we get lightning. (grey=rain, white=snow, black=lightning)

Initially, I was planning on making a wrap, but since it's already 56 inches long, and there are still 9 months to go, I'm changing channels to a different train of thought - an afghan sounds right. :wink:

I cast off this section and set it aside. I will make a matching section for Oct, Nov, and Dec, to be the other end of my afghan. The ends will be fringe for the edges. No ends to weave in! :thumbsup:

Now, I want to crochet some squares for the Spring and Summer months. One square for each day. I will seam together all those little squares for the center of the afghan. Wish me luck!

What a fun way to remember the year. I've heard of spinning a wheel or picking cards to determine the number of rows in a color pattern but this is unique. I'm looking forward to the finished afghan.

Well, it looks great and also should be say big enough to keep you warm whatever months you wrap around you! :0)
