  1. So, it's one row a day...just out of curiosity, what time of day do you use for your coloring? I'm thinking of doing one based on evening sky colors (including sunsets)....thoughts?

    1. Hi Susan, I did one row a day for the year. I checked the sky each day at 3:00 in the afternoon, that is why I have only a few basic colors. Doing a blanket based on the evening sky would have a lot more color since sunsets can be very colorful. Make sure to download the chart it is really helpful!
