And The Stitching Goes On

Hello everyone! This post is another installment of the Star Wars A New Hope Crochet Temperature Blanket series I’m working on. Today I’ll show you the progress made on the April panel I finished up recently. So let’s get to it!

But First, An Update

Before I forget, I wanted to give you an update on the another color change for the temperature/yarn chart. I have yet to use this range of temperatures, but I realized that the yarn I used for 87-89 degrees is no longer being made by Red Heart. So I found a replacement for it, anticipating getting to use it eventually.

In the image below, you can see the comparison of the new yarn between the color that comes before it and after it: Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry Red on the right and Red Heart Super Saver in Burgundy on the left of it.

And below you can see the new yarn on the top, Red Heart With Love in Berry Red, and the old yarn on the bottom, Red Heart Super Saver in Brick Red. As you can see, they are very similar, which I was pretty happy about.

April on Tatooine

The setting I chose for April 1977 temperatures is, like March, the Lars family homestead on Tatooine. The filming was done in Sidi Driss Hotel, Matmata, Tunisia, but the temperatures I found came from the nearby location of Djerba, Tunisia. Either way, the colors came out looking very nice for April.

I particularly like the way the salmon and peach colored rows look among the orange and reds.

Now And Later

So let’s recap. You can find the previous posts/months below:

  • January on the Fourth Moon of Yavin
  • February on Mos Eisley, Tatooine
  • March on the Lars family homestead, Tatooine

I’m about done with May and June, so those posts will be coming soon.
