Squares are made and sent to KAS from all over the world. When they arrive, they must be sorted, packed into bundles of 35. Then they are given to the Gogo groups and KAS volunteers to be made into beautiful blankets. They are returned to the KAS workshop and finally travel in the KASmobile to be distributed to the children who need them.
This is why we are jingling our bells early in the year. We want our Christmas blankets to be ready in plenty of time for Christmas
Give free rein to your creative talents. You can make PJ’s, striped or appliqued squares.
Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer,
Make this Christmas the best yet for KAS’s 10th anniversary.
AND of course all toys are welcome to share the fun.
The PoM this month is the Alphabet crochet square.
Instructions and graphs can be found in the KAS pattern book.
Here is an "N" for NOEL to start you off.
Valerie, blue may not be considered a Christmas color by some, but Elvis thought it was, and I like Elvis :) He often had a "Blue Christmas" :)))
These squares are inspired by Linda R. who posted a photo of a TC heart granny square she made ... her own gorgeous creation! I loved the idea and she shared the 'how-to' with me. This is my version of that pattern. Thank you, Linda R :)) xo
Our talented members have been trying out the knitted Fields and Furrows pattern from online. Sharon B created a beautiful crochet version. So I figured - hey, if we can knit it, and we can crochet it, why not TC it :) So I did! Here is my TC version of that same idea ... xo
Glo, you're a wonder. First, I think your blue squares are great. They actually look more silvery on my screen. Then I think your TC version of Sharon's crochet square is beautiful. It gives the impression of Christmas lights with a dusting of snow. I think you just invented impressionist TC!!!
So creative Glo, love the colours super squares xx
Hats off to you, Linda and Sharon, Gloria - as someone who can only follow patterns (with a few minor amendments), I stand in awe of your creativity. And the squares are stunning!
Beautiful. Gorgeous. Stunning.
All three are terrific, Gloria. I love the top two squares, and the right hand one even has a texture stitch (honeycomb?) on the "frame" part. I still haven't figured out how you and Linda R. managed it. ;(
Love the yarn in your 3rd one, and the creative way you worked it.
LOVE your silvery blue squares, Glo......and the TC fields and furrows looks super!!!!! It is just soooooo pretty. :))
I think the generous sharing of skills, patterns and ideas is what makes 'us' (KAS forum ) so special. Well done Linda R., Sharon and Glo. xo
Oh my goodness, and I still have the knit one on my challenge list. Amazing work ladies.
Nordic Star Square.
A BEAUTIFUL square, Patricia. I love your Nordic star and with the bands of red, it is radiating out in all directions. :))
This Nordic Star pattern is beautful and the red and white show it off so well.
Another beauty, Patricia - this will really stand out in a blanket.
Beautiful, Patricia! Lovely colors and such perfect work. xo
