I selected a different color for each five degrees of temperature difference. Colorado temps vary from well below zero to triple digit highs over the course of a year -- so it will take a lot of different yarn colors.
So far this year the temperature has swung from -10F to 61F! And the New Year is only one week old!
See that yellow row? The high was 61 on Friday. The fuchsia represents "below zero." I based my color choices on the NOAA weather map.
Because our daily air temperatures often boast a 30 degree difference between low and high, I decided to knit three rows each day. Each row represents the low, mean (average) and high temperature for that day.
It will be fun to see the colors swing from purples and blues to yellows, orange and red as summer approaches. I'll post more photos of "My Year in Temperatures" as the year progresses.
