Mid-year update: Temperature afghan

Okay, I’m a couple months late on this post. But I wanted to do a mid-year update on the progress I’ve made with my temperature blanket.

I started this blanket at the beginning of this year hoping to document the high temp of every day. That’s 365 strips, and 365 temperatures. I knew it would be a slog, and would take time away from other projects I want to work on. One strip every single day.

As you can imagine, it’s been difficult.

This week, as of this post, I have completed 196 strips, up through July 14. As you well know, it is almost the end of August (whoops). I’m happy with the progress so far and how pretty it’s turning out.

I’m excited to see what the rest of the year holds. This will be a project I look back on fondly. I may even repeat what I’ve done in a few years (or do a scarf-type project so it’s not as big or as daunting as a blanket). Regardless, I am happy with this blanket’s progress. And with my progress, as a human and post-divorce, post-pandemic person. Each strip on this blanket is another day I made it, another day I woke up and chose to continue to search for the happiness I know I need and deserve.
