So I heard about this and thought it sounded like fun to do. I only can work on it after the end of every month (or else lose track of the days), but it's intriguing.
I am making two scarves: one for where I live in northern California (the larger, darker one) and one for southern California (the smaller, brighter one). I figured I’d compare the two as I ponder moving one of these decades…
NorCal scarf is in worsted weight, larger needles. SoCal scarf is in DK weight, smaller needles, with less colors available (purple, blue, green, orange, red). But then again, I hear the temperatures change less there.
These are going to use stash yarn around the house. 2 rows of garter stitch = 1 day of 2013.
80-89: yellow on NorCal worsted scarf, orange on SoCal DK scarf (cannot find any yarn in yellow for it that I like).
90-99: orange on NorCal worsted scarf, red on SoCal DK Scarf.
100 and up: red on NorCal worsted scarf.
White = in between months.
I like comparing the days and how they change in temperature in both locations.
Here's Northern California for January and February (starting from the left).
Note that in January it starts out pretty cold--50's and 40's--then starts to warm a bit into the 60's. In February (on right), it's mostly 60's with a few cold spells, and the last day warmed up into the 70's! Huzzah! (Though as of March, that's...alas, going downhill by now.)
Here's Southern California, January starts on the left and February's in the pic on the right.
More comparison to come for the rest of the year.
