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:
This is really pretty, Diana....and great colours for a girl or boy. :))
A gorgeous beanie Diana, love the colours xx
Wonderful! the yarn looks like a party, and the hat looks cozy and comfortable.
And the magnificent pom pom in multi colors. Wow. So much work.
I do not know why, but I haven't seen this till now. I shall try to have a go at something with some different texture - I think it is a great idea. So often we focus on the visual - making things bright and adding in pictures and stripes etc. The idea that the children can enjoy a tactile square appeals to me a great deal
Thanks for the challenge!
A pretty square, Louise.......love the colours. :))
Thanks ladies....this was so much easier and quicker to make compered to the dreaded fuzzy stuff!!! :))
