For the month of January I have knitted two rows a day in the colour of the sky:
It's been a pretty grey month with lots of rain so I'm amazed there was any blue in it at all!

Row 1: p1, * k2, p2, k4, p2 repeat to last 3 stitches, k2, p1.
Row 2: k1, * p2, k2, p4, k2 repeat to last 3 stitches, p2, k1.
Row 3: p1, * k2, p2, k4cb, p2 repeat to last 3 stitches, k2, p1.
Row 4: repeat row 2.

These 4 rows were repeated throughout the month.

Choosing Colours

After the success of my 2013 project - 365 Granny Squares I have decided the my 2014 project will also involve wool, although I am hopeful it will be slightly less tine consuming!
This year I plan to knit two rows of a scarf every day, the colour of these rows will depend on the colour of the sky wherever I am at midday!
I have chosen five colours to signify the weather - a bright blue for a totally cloudless sky, a paler blue for days when there is just the odd cloud, a cream for mostly cloudy days, a pale grey for cloudy and a bit of rain and a dark grey for the truly terrible never stops raining days!
The scarf will be 54 stitches wide and knitted on size 4mm needles. I intend to change the pattern at the start of each month..........
