Square Circle Forum

 

As we look ahead to 2014, Ronda’s team and the Mod team have set some lofty goals…… so lofty in fact, that we are going to try to produce a stack of squares high enough to reach the top of Table Mountain in Capetown, South Africa!

            See the discussion KAS REACHES GREAT HEIGHTS FOR CHILDREN  here 

 

                                As a result, Knit-a-Square is declaring 2014 as

                                        THE YEAR OF THE SQUARE

The most important items that we distribute to our vulnerable children are the wonderful snuggly blankets made possible by the squares that you KASfolk make with such love and care. We are looking forward to a colourful, creative and productive 2014.

 

The following list of Challenge Themes are suggested only for inspiration and as an attempt to make our square-making even more fun as we stitch our way to the top of Table Mountain.

ALL squares are welcome anytime, and remember – PLAIN JANE squares are the backbone of KAS

Thanks Anne for posting this list, hopefully we have created a list of challenges that embraces everyone, be they artistic or prefer our beloved Plain Jane's.

Thanks Anne!Love the themes for next year, luckily I am going on a yarn buying trip next week so can take this list with me so I know what to get!

I am SUPER happy especially to see the Variegated yarns and Stripes/Textures theme returning.  I had lots more patterns and yarn in mind for both of these themes this year that I just didn't have time to try, so can do them next time, yay!

I am also glad I practised the crocheted heart this year, look forward to making lots of those for the February challenge!

Wendy, I love these themes too.  I think we got some excellent suggestions and it looks like a fun year ahead. I'm trying to focus on January right now, so I can get a few G-Os made ahead, but every now and then something in my stash catches my eye and I have to stop and make a square to tuck away for a future challenge. I'm especially looking forward to seeing what the gang comes up with for your "Around the World" theme in September.

I was looking over this, and what exactly is "bugs, slugs, and HUGS??" going to be? Lol, just seemed like a interesting combination!

Hmmm, just noticed there is no Christmas theme for next year. Any way it could be worked into one of the other challenges?

We try not to get too predictable each year Cherry, but anyone is welcome to incorporate Christmas into their designs at anytime!  It will be back for 2015!

Hi Cherry.  April, September, and October could all very well get Christmassy ... don't you think? xo
