    Hi! Loved reading your progress throught the year and i think your scarf is lovely!
    I’m also tryig a temperature scarf in the round but am not able to get round the colour changes. I’m doing a max and a min temperature for each day and have about 13 colours.
    So, do I carry the yarn (all 13 colours!) up? If I cut it at the end of each row, how would I join in the new colour? How did you do it?

      My strategy was to carry the yarn up if I had 6 or less rows. If if was more than 6 rows I cut then joined the yarn. I just made a snug knot inside the tube and just started knitting with the new color. Knitting in the round allows you to hide the ends pretty well.
