i'm embarking on a weather-themed journey for this year. well, temperature-themed if one wants to get technical, but i'm rarely technical. on ravelry a month or so ago i stumbled upon reddoormeg's completely amazing and inspiring 2014 weather blanket and knew i had to make my own for 2015!
i decided on knitpicks wool of the andes yarn because a) i wanted a wool blanket and b) it comes in nearly a million colors so i knew i'd have options.
i've assigned each color a 10 degree range and chose a light grey color to be the month markers.
we've had a very cold start to january in minnesota with wind chills reaching -35 deg F. my blanket doesn't take wind chills into account, but i'm still excited that i got to use my "colder than -11 deg" color at least once!
here's the first 11 days of january! the neurotic crafter in me is oddly satisfied that i have no control over the color choices. it's dictated by the weather and there's nothing i can do about how the colors line up. it's kind of refreshing to be making something completely random.
ps- the title of the post is one of my all time favorite bob dylan quotes. it's been running through my head as i worked on these tiny squares.
plus, i just love this video. baby bob dylan bringing it all back home.
