Square Circle Forum

Happy August, everyone!

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:

Happy creating!

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 

I decided to make another square using the swing needle technique.  Bev seemed to think that my pattern would look better in pink ... LOL

Well ... I wanted to try the same pattern (K3, P2) in two colors so I chose pink and purple.  I hope you don't mind, Bev  :)) xo

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

A late arrival to the theme Texture through stitches.

Here is Diana's hat:

Diana, this is so lovely!  So soft looking and the perfect colors for fall.  Well done ... xo

Much appreciated, Gloria. I had difficulties uploading the picture from my iPad? I might going to need your help when I finish the hand warmers . Just kidding . I'll try again.

Another gorgeous hat, Diana - many thanks! 

August 2017 Theme - Terrific to Touch

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!
