But I'm having difficulty finding anything other than wool. I'd like a yarn suitable to the temperate California climate so I could wear the scarf almost year-round. I wouldn't mind a silk/cotton blend, but then too, gotta be inexpensive. Anyone have any ideas?
I have decided though that since we knit 2 rows for a day, I will do both the actual high and low for the day. This will mix up the colors nicely - gonna be lively!

However, because I live just outside Houston, TX, and because although I do like red, I don't need foot after foot of red in the middle of this monster, I've broken down the warmer temperatures into 5 degree intervals. I'm looking at our high temperatures only, and I think this should suffice, as we have yet to get below the mid-40's this winter. If we do happen to have any hard freezes, I may have to add another color to the bottom of my scale. My border color is Silk, which is a lovely cream color.
