Temperature Scarf for humanitarian
The temperature scarf is written here in Farenheight- for our summer temps - but we welcome people all over the planet to help!
We are making these fun scarves for Millie Hernandez who helps the "Manna of Life Soup kitchen"
in the Bronx, NY! If you want to join us, we are making these
scarves from May 19th through the end of October 2017! You can
knit or crochet them to your hearts content! As you finish one,
HOW TO's :
Choose a color
from the chart that matches the temperature that day. You knit/crochet
at least 4- 6 rows, or as many as you want, using that color. You
can actually work on the scarf several times in a single day, just use
the chart colors that match the temperature at that time. And
yes, there are sometimes 2 colors to choose from
for that temperature... eg, If it's 80 out you could choose 70-80 which
would be green, or choose 80-90 which is yellow :) Just to give
people more choice! :)
I was thinking I might choose the temp/color at 5 am when I get up.
my 4 rows before work, and then maybe do 4 more in the temp/color it is
when I get home. Today it was 49 F when I woke up so Lavender and 73
F when I got home, so Green, and it was in the 80s later so I used yellow for a few rows too!
