Star Wars Temperature Blankets Project – Movie 1 – Part 11
Hello everyone! Okay, so it’s taken forever, but finally I have been able to finish The Star Wars “A New Hope” Temperature Blanket! Yay me! I’ll be wrapping up the last two posts for the November and December panels, then do a third and final post with the finished blanket and the word-panels. Let’s get started, shall we?
Having run low on listed filming locations by the time I got to assigning November, I decided to look up where the premiere was held when the movie came out. According to what I found, it was in Hollywood! So below you’ll find the temperature chart you’ll need to make your own November-panel.
Temperature and Colors
This particular month was a bit weird when I found the temperatues for November of 1977 Hollywood. The temperature had a constant and slow decrease throughout the entire month, going from one temperature to next in sequential order. This meant that there weren’t many color changes because the temperatures stayed within a small range. But I’m not going to question it! Because it was hard to find temperature records for that far back, so let’s just go with it.
The chart below shows the month, filming location (which in this case is replaced with the premiere location), and the temperatures. Be sure to use the color chart from part 1 to see which yarns you’ll need, or go ahead and fill that column in with the colors/yarns from your own color chart if you made one.
This Month, Next Month
Despite the lack of variation in colors for this panel, I rather like the effect and look of it. One thing I did NOT like, however, was the terrible timing of having run out of that center hue. And for some reason all the nearby stores in my area didn’t seem to have it for weeks! So I had to order it online and wait for it arrive before I could finish. But it got done!
Next month, the December-panel, does have more variation and fluctuating temperatures giving it a stratified look again.
Until Next Time
