Don’t know about you, but I am slowly starting to look ahead and I get all happy as we slowly come to the end of the year. Sint Nickolas and Christmas as not far of now, and I have always enjoyed the lights and many decorations that this time of year brings. I truly love December. It has taken some getting used to, this winter thing coinciding with Christmas because I grew up with Christmas being a time of summer holiday. But the winter darkness and festive lighting also has a lot of charm to it.
As the year draws to a close, so does my C2C temperature blanket. The temperature has dropped, bringing in yellow and green back from a long lost time. I would like to show you a small update on my blanket, but just a small peek, because I will show you the full blanket when it’s all done. I am using 35 shades of Scheepjes Maxi Sweet Treat with a 2.5mm (US 4) hook. Under Resources you find everything you need for the Make Along.

October and November 2018
I pend a LOT of time working on my yarn tails this last month, I was almost 2 months behind, but it is surprisingly meditative to spend an evening working away yarn tails. As the year comes to a close, the blanket is starting to work towards the final corner too. Here you can see the two edges slowly coming together.
October and November are kind of all over the place, we have had all time high temperatures, but also very COLD days, much colder than normal for this time of year. I have come to the conclusion that 2018 will most likely have a beautiful average temperature, but the individual days are just totally random.
Make your own #C2CMAL2018 blanket
To make your own blanket you need to align temperatures to colors. I have given you an example in my Color Chart C2C Temperature Blanket Make ALong 2018. However, feel free to change the range of the temperatures to better suite your local situation. I have decided to use the maximum temperature registered by the official weather station in my city as the temperature for each day of the year. You can use the Empty Color Chart to register the temperature in your city so that you can keep track of which color goes where. Finally you need the pattern, we are going to keep increasing the diagonal for some time still, so just keep going for the time being.
A new temperature project?
I will show you my finished blanket at the end of the year, but not before I tell you about a new temperature project. I am slowly working on a new project for next year, currently contemplating yarns and colors. I really enjoyed the process of making a temperature blanket, and I want to do so again next year. Will tell you more in a few weeks about the design, yarn, and colors I come up with.
