    Wow….I feel overwhelmed just reading all that! I’m sure that you’ll do awesome and I am looking forward to seeing the end result.

  2. What a cool idea! I’ve been thinking of crocheting a blanket for my middle child, who has outgrown what I was using on her bed, and this could be a really fun thing to do for her.

    Also, whoa. That knot? Looks genius. I’m working on a baby blanket right now and HAVE to try that. Thanks for sharing!

      • She actually wants to learn to crochet, and I’ve taught people to crochet before, but never to knit, so maybe I would go that route. A temperature scarf would actually be a super fun idea too!

        Okay, that knot you posted the video for? IS AMAZING. I shared it with my mom just now because I am in love with it. Thank you for sharing!

  3. I have been wanting to work up a temperature afghan for a while now, and this year is the year! I was able to pick up some yarn at a sale at the first of the year. I am crocheting my blanket, using the moss stitch (or granite stitch) and keeping it simple, using the high or the average temp (I’m reserving the right to choose which I want to use each day!)
    I love reading through all the options you list – the variegated yarn for special days is a great idea!
    and, wow, that video showing how to make that know – amazing! I’ve never seen that but I’ll definitely be trying it. One thing I have been lamenting is all those ends I’m going to have to weave – not my favorite task.
    Enjoy your project – it’ll be fun to see how it develops over the year!

    • Yeah for sales! That’s how I bought my yarn too. The knot takes a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, it’s wonderful. Then it takes a bit more practice for figuring out where to cut your tail so the knot will be the most hidden. But there’s lots of times to practice with this blanket. I don’t like weaving ends either.
