16 in 2016 project list

So I started the first project on my 16 in 2016 list. I thought I would get an early start on the posts so I am not doing everything at the last minute like last month. I also plan not to change any of the projects. Wish me luck on that. I will be making projects where I will be using a graph.

I tried to gather a list that wasn’t all hats. But I can also count those towards the 52 hats list . ( another Ravelry group) . I always set out to make 52 ( other than orders ) but I never complete the 52.

ALso I will be posting these posts on Pinterest so if you are one of the many people on pinterest, please follow the board here. I may even open it up for others to add their 16 in 2016 projects.

here is my list in no particular order…

1. The Force Awakens toque

2. Skaters rule Skateboard graph

3. Crown Graph hat

4. Trees go Round Adult Christmas hat

5. Game of Thrones sigil fingerless gloves

6. Bikini dishcloth

Crochet stuff · Temperature Blanket 2016

Temperature Blanket week 1

Have you heard about this?

 “The idea is to crochet a row a day for an entire year. The color you use is determined by the temperature each day.”       -Repeat Crafter Me. ( said it best)  

I first heard about a Temperature Scarf a few years ago. I started one but never got past the first month. This year I plan to make a blanket. I like projects I can piece together. My blanket will be 2 round granny squares using a J size hook.

Here are my colors

91 and above – Cream

81 – 90            Perfect Pink

71 – 80            Rouge

61 -70             Lavender

51 – 60            Orchid

41 – 50            Bright Orchid

31 – 40            Turquoise

21 – 30            Delft Blue

11 – 20            Jade

10 and below- Peacock

I will be adding snow days as well.

Here is my progress for week one. As you can see its been a colorful week 🙂

a few turquoise , bright orchid , a sparkly square for a snow day and delft blue.

I can’t wait to see what week 2 brings!
