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:
Thanks, Heather, for this wonderful fun theme. It certainly inspired some great squares. Like Louise, I have hidden my 'hairy' yarns at the very back of my stash cupboard, and I have my fingers crossed that they will not multiply. Hope your re-entry to the rat race is not too bad. Big Hugs!
Thanks, Anne! x x x x x
Anne, I'm sure if you check your stash....the hairy blighters will be on the increase already!! lol
Absolutely beautiful, Glo! It looks really intricate and delicate and the colours are lovely together.
Me?....Mind? My two fave colours in this gorgeous pattern....I think it's BRILLIANT!!!!! Soooooo pretty. xo
Another gorgeous hat, Diana - many thanks!
FINALLY....after many setbacks (including frogging a strip of four squares because I thought I'd dropped a stitch in the fun fur 'somewhere', only to find for some reason I had cast on one less stitch in that strip!) I have finished!!!
THANK YOU Heather for hosting this theme....lots of lovely colours, patterns and textures from our talented members will soon be winging their way to SA. :))
A beautiful and 'fun' blanket, Bev - and I can sympathise with your frogging!
