Tips for a Successful Temperature Blanket

As a knitter and a mother, creating a temperature blanket during my last year’s maternity leave became a memorable project. Not only did it document the weather changes, but it also became a diary of my baby’s first year.

Each color transition brought back memories of days spent in the park, cozy rainy afternoons, and sunny mornings in the garden, all wrapped up in the comfort of our family room, snug on our Puffy Lux Mattress.
