Temperature Blanket 2016

blanket2
As if I don’t have enough going on these days between being a second year math major, running an Etsy shop and attempting to stay in shape, I have decided to make a temperature blanket this year. Each day I will check the previous days weather and crochet a granny square with colors that correspond to the temperatures.

So far I have stayed on track… for a whole 3 days, impressive for me because I get bored with projects very, very, quickly. Lucky for me the weather here in Colorado Springs is EXTREMELY erratic so I doubt I will be doing the same colors two days in a row.

The inside circle is the “low” for the day and the outer color is the “high”. Clearly its been a little cold here lately.

Taking on a project like this would normally be fun for most people, but unfortunately I am not most people and I have a little bit of OCD, probably why I am so good at math :).

I made this tub hoping that if I stayed organized I will stay on track. Also this big eye sore has become quite the motivation to stay on track for┬ádoing this daily…. or at least weekly. Yea I’ll say weekly, gotta be realistic right?

Fingers crossed I don’t sit down one day and have 200 squares to make! I am looking forward to having a cozy, colorful blanket at the end of the year that documents the bipolar weather in my new home state.

Wish me luck on this crafty adventure!
