From Episode 15 - Bad Luck by Social Distortion
I was going to start with Jan 1st and do the whole year but my OCD tendencies kicked in and some things were bugging me. First of all that would be starting in the middle of the winter and the second thing was that temperature can fluctuate a lot during the day and night and varies between sources too. Do I use the temperature from noon or night or use the days high, low or mien temp? Anyway, to keep this on the shorter side I decided to use the Almanac website which will allow you to put in your zip code and look at past temperatures for your area. Since this is a project I started with my son I asked him about the other questions. We decided to start Aug 1st, 2014 because that is pretty much considered to be the beginning of fall for this area. We decided to use the low temps during the cold months (Aug - March) and then switch to the high temps for the warmer months (April - July) to show the extremes in temperatures we get here. We are calling it "Alaskan Extremes"
I am just doing 22 stitches of single crochet using a size G hook (4mm). I started with two rows of black and I'll be adding two rows of black between each month. After I'm finished I'll add an edge in black all the way around. My son helped me figure out that my scarf should end up being about 7 feet long. It is a good idea to think about that before you get started. I was originally going to crochet two rows for each day and adding 4 rows of black between each month and it would have been way too long. Dr. Who would have been envious.
Below you can see a bad picture of the whole thing to this point. We will definitely choose better colors next time. We were limited to the colors the store had in stock at the time so it was hard to pick good colors to go together. We definitely have too much green for this part of the scarf. It looks like a military scarf. Oh well, ya live and learn.
