Temperature Blanket Update: March

This temperature blanket update is a tad late, as we are almost half-way through April, but I think I have a good excuse. I was out of one of Turquoise Heather, and since most yarn shops are closed, it was a bit of a challenge to get more. Luckily, my local Joann Fabrics started to offer curbside pickup, so I was able to continue on and finish the month of March.

As I mentioned in my last post, this blanket will easily cover a king-size bed when it is complete. While I wasn’t in love with it last month, I am starting to like how it is turning out. My biggest challenge, besides getting yarn under lock down, was weaving in all the ends. I believe I mentioned in an earlier post, I absolutely HATE weaving in ends. As I was already behind in my square making and blanket joining, I made the mistake of now weaving in ends as I went along. That was a HUGE mistake! Something I will definitely avoid as I work through April; and the rest of the months for that matter.

I sent the two photos I’ve included in this update to a friend of mine and she thought it looked just like pixels from a video game. Mission accomplished! That’s exactly what I was hoping for as the project continued. Her teenage son agreed as well, which made me quite happy.

I think it is safe to say I am starting to enjoy this project more than I expected. Hopefully by the end of April we are allowed to leave our homes in New Jersey and purchase yarn in person again at our local yarn shops and craft stores.
