A while back I featured an awesome Remix of the Amineko Cat pattern. Karin used the temperature of each day to craft a one-of-a-kind cat.
Temperature projects like blankets, scarves, and this cat are a form of journaling through crochet. Taking a moment of each day to work on a single project slowly over time can provide a very different kind of satisfaction than working on a project for hours at a time and finishing it much more quickly. Interested in trying out this type of project for yourself? Here are a few ideas!
Work up a different, large afghan block each month and combine all twelve at the end of the year for a special blanket.
Select a different color of yarn for each mood (happy, sad, angry, bored, excited, etc) and then work up a row on a scarf or blanket in the appropriate color each day.
This is a great one for beginners. Choose a small pattern like a flower motif. Work the same pattern once every month for a year. At the end of the year you'll be able to see how much your tension and accuracy has improved. You can then use all of the bits and pieces together in a big project.
