This is the one month in the year when I can take some time to breathe and relax - and do LOADS of knitting and crocheting!
It also means I am able to host a theme and spend a bit more time on the forum.
The KAS pattern book has a good selection of knitted and crocheted squares with different patterns and textures, for a starter. The wider Internet is alive with a rich variety of choices, if, like me you have a little more time this month and want to try some thing new.
So this is the month to rake through your stash and find all those weird bits and bobs of eyelash, fuzzy and pom-pom yarns that you never know what to do with!
Of course, this will then create space to buy some lovely new yarns...
Hopefully, that's whetted your appetite and got your creative juices flowing!
Let's see how many people are brave enough to try out at least ONE new stitch or technique this month.
As you upload your photos onto the main site, I will add them to our photo album for the month, which you can view here:
How sweet is this???!!!! It looks sooooo soft, Joan. Is it a kind of fluffy chenille-type yarn?
Oh, this looks so soft ... and I love the contrast band that you added.
Joan, you're an STAR. :))). Well done for making such a beautiful beanie with the 'almost impossilbe yarn to knit or crochet with'. it was worth waiting for.....will you be making matching hand warmers?? lol xx
Joan, please don't worry about Christmas, I'm sure you'll rise to the challenge whatever it is.....a little clue.....think sparkle & glitter! xx
Ooh, get excited, Joan....that sounds like fun!!
Good luck Joan. Happy Christmas!!
Beautiful and looks just so fluffy. No plans for handwarmers??? lol
