These posts were originally posted on the MoneySavingForums (a UK money management site), I am moving my journals across to WordPress to have them in chronological order. I’m not sure how much of other people’s words I’m allowed to copy across from one site to another, so in some sections I may summarise conversations.
I’ve also started on my temperature blanket for 2020. As a reminder, you assign a colour to a temperature, then each day do a row in the average temperature for that day. Do that for a year and you end up with an asymmetrical gradient that’s so pretty. I’m doing it all in shades of blue/purple, starting out with white for below 0, then going up to navy and purple for 30 degrees in steps of 5 degrees. I obviously didn’t buy 30 degree yarn for January, I bought for below 0 through to plus 10. It’s surprisingly warm though, so I need to get the next wool up just in case. We won’t get up to 15 degrees any time soon, but we seem to be hitting 11 degrees every few days. I’ve done four rows so far, and 3 of them have been in the same colour.
I look forward to being able to, at the end of the year, look at the blanket and go “look… that’s 2020”
But the rows are taking longer than I’d like so a bit worried about the pride blanket progress this year
