2018 Temperature Scarf

I’ve been slightly obsessed with temperature blankets and scarves for a while now. I love the idea of documenting the year a day at a time. Maybe it was the euphoria over actually accomplishing my Christmas ornament a day project or maybe it’s that this cold snap is making me slightly crazier, but when a friend shared a link to this scarf it peaked my interest. To be honest, the thought of weaving in 730 (365×2) ends gives me shivers and that’s not just the cold talking. I loved this alternative of incorporating them into the project.

I dug into my stash and came out with some colours that I think will work:

I have more of each colour other than the orange, yellow, and dark blue, so hopefully there will be enough to carry through.

I’m going to alternate between seed stitch and garter stitch for each month, starting with seed stitch for January. While there’s some temperature fluctuations over the coming days, for now, it’s purply-purple cold.

    I think I’ve talked myself into doing this as well. Might keep a temp record & then knit a month at a time.

      That’s a good idea. When I get behind I’ll go back to the Environment Canada website. 😀

      I hope you share pictures; it will be interesting how they compare.

    That’s a great idea, and Canada is the ideal country for this project, as temperatures vary so much, from extreme cold in winter to very hot in summer. Now if I wanted to do this in Brittany, I probably would have to narrow the temperature ranges as it seldom goes below 0 and above 30 – although we had a hot spell last June for a few days. Anyway, it’s a great stashbusting project. You will end up with a lovely rainbow scarf.

      We’re into our second week of frigid temperatures; zero would feel like a heat wave!

        So I’ve seen, I hope the extreme cold won’t last for too long. Take care and layer up with your woolies.
