Temperature Snake CAL: month 5 roundup

Each month in 2023 I’m sharing a Temperature Snake CAL roundup with a collage of some of our snakes’ progress – even if you aren’t joining in, I think you’ll enjoy seeing all the snakes growing throughout the year!

At 5 months through the year, we’re almost halfway through our snakes now! Here’s the May collage from some of the latest photos that have been posted. These are taken from the CAL threads on Discord and Ravelry, plus some from people who’ve tagged me (@PlanetJune) on FB and IG or emailed to me:

Good work, everyone! Can you spot your snake?

If you’re making a Temperature Snake too, please join us in the PlanetJune community groups, share your snake’s progress with us all, and get chatting with our friendly community!

And, if you’d like your snake to be included in the next monthly roundup, please post an up-to-date pic (or email it directly to me: by 9am EST on July 3rd. Do remember to tag me (@planetjune) if you post on social, or I won’t see your pic.

Putting together these collages is a real challenge for me, like a strange jigsaw where I have to trim all the pieces to fit as I assemble it. But I think it’s worth it – it’s so cool to see the snakes growing with each month that passes. I try to include as many snakes as possible in each collage, so please do get your pic to me if you can – I love seeing how your snakes are progressing. 🙂

    What did I do wrong. I put the hashtag in the Ravelry just like others have done.
    No problem, just what to know for next June (the month) not our leader!

      You didn’t do anything wrong, Dave – you just need to scan the collage closely, row by row, until you spot your snake! I know it’s tricky when there are so many, so I’ll save you the trouble this time: yours is 2nd row down, 2nd from the left 🙂
