started a conceptual knitting project that involved knitting a scarf using different colours to represent daily temperatures. Really cool idea, but despite having all the temps for 2013 (my first full calender year in the Yukon), I stalled out by April 2013. I just wasn't a fan of how narrow the scarf was, and wasn't too happy with the way I was handling the ends.
(I just realized I wrote the post for this on Sewing on Pins exactly a year ago today. Hilariously, I've also signed up for Holla Knits KAL again, but more on that another time.)
So I decided to restart it this year, but this time following along with 2015 temps. I'm using the daily average temps from accuweather and trying to knit each day. Sometimes I fall a bit behind, like in my last rotation in camp, but I enjoyed catching up on the previous 14 days. You can see my progress below.
The darker purple area? That was nearly an entire week of above 0C (32F) temps! ARRRGHHH not what a skier wants to see when she's sitting in camp and itching to get onto the hill or our for a cross-country trip. Luckily we got a couple of good snow dumps in the last few days. But that also means I can't actually drive up my street, which is a crescent on a hill and is literally uphill on both sides - combined with the iciness below the snow means my car is being parked a 15 minute walk away. As you can see by the light purple and darker purple on the top, temps are still hovering above 0. BRING ON THE COLD TEMPS!
If you want the exact breakdown of temp colours and details on the pattern itself, you can check out my Ravelry project page.
This is going to be a fun year-long project! I'll update you all every few months on my progress. Have you ever tackled a long-term project like this?
