Crochet Project: Crochet Temperature Blanket

I have so many projects planned for 2016...I'm so excited.  I find project planning on of the most exciting aspects of crochet...the colors, the stitches, the possibilities...I love it.

The first project that I will be starting tomorrow, January 1, 2016 is a temperature blanket.  I have had granny stripe blanket on my crochet bucket list for a while and I think this is the perfect time to make it.

I've been going though my yarn stash and these are the colors I chose to use and the temperatures for which they correspond...

All of the yarn is Vanna's Choice-


Color
Temperature
Burgundy
>100 °F
Cranberry
90 to 100 °F
Scarlet
80 to 90 °F
Terra Cotta
70 to 80 °F
Mustard
60 to 70 °F
Sweet Pea
50 to 60 °F
Kelly Green
40 to 50 °F
Aqua
30 to 40 °F
Sapphire
20 to 30 °F
Purple
10 to 20 °F
Magenta
0 to 10 °F
Berrylicious
-10 to 0 °F

I'm going to follow Attic 24's Granny Stripe pattern.

My plan is to do one stripe a day (starting on January 1st) using the color that corresponds to the temperature of that day at noon.

Happy New Year!  And, cheers to all the projects to be made in 2016!!
