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:
A beautiful, beautiful square, Sharon. Yes, it is a glori-ous blue. :))
I have three different colours I plan on using in my 'August' project....none of which are pink, so I will have to incorporate some pinks into it....can't have everyone thinking the only colour is blue.....lol.
Lovely and very neatly done.
Lovely square, and lovely texture for little fingers to explore!
Uuooo that's pretty. On my agenda.
Marion, your work is always so incredibly tidy! These are fabulous ... even though they're not blue :)
10 pink to 2 blue. Guess the pinks are in the lead. Bev and her team will be grinning, I'm sure ... hahaha ... xo
Oh YAY!!!! Let's hear it for the pinks and purples!!!!
Absolutely divine, Marion.......your butterflies are extra special in these colours. :))
Your textured squares look lovely and warm in this pattern, too. :))
I second Gloria. These squares are very neatly done. They look warm too.
Gorgeous colours and an interesting stitch (as well as those beautiful butterflies) - just found a nice clear tutorial on you tube, so must give it a try.
Marion, I love those butterflies so much that I can hardly take my eyes off them, but when I finally do, then I see gorgeous complimentary squares. I wonder if you ever sleep? How do you work such perfect stitches so fast? Truly amazing. Now I must go search out the mini bean stitch.
