"Variety is the Spice of Life"- and this month's theme offers plenty of variety whatever your level of skills in knitting or crochet.
Let your imagination run riot with yarn, colour, stitch and texture to create squares, blankets, hand warmers or toys, whether a traditional crochet granny square, in knitted garter stitch - we love Plain Janes - or in the wonderful range of variegated yarn.
Or try your hand at something new - there are lots of ideas on the KAS Pattern Book.
Do share your pictures of grannies, garters and variegated wonders on the KAS Square Forum page - under Photos and also under Discussion Categories for the October 2017 theme. We look forward to seeing them.
Update: Linda has kindly created two photo albums of the beautiful squares, blankets, toys, hand-wrmers and hats that KAS members have made this month to far - an amazing and impressive collection with many not featured on the specific October page, so do take a look at the links below.
With apologies, I prepared this introduction ages ago with lots of your lovely squares as examples of grannies, garters and variegated wonders - but I have spent all afternoon trying to post it, and it keeps telling me I am way, way over the no. of characters allowed. I admit I am not very IT savvy, but I have resized images, edited the text to no avail. So instead - here it is in plain words.
I look forward to you all adding lots of colour to this month's theme.
Three pair handwarmers in some yarn I bought online from the UK, called Hayfields Bonus Buzz.
A very frustrated knitter this month. Soooo many variegated yarns that I want to knit, but am busy helping cleaning, packing up and painting my eldest son's house in readiness to sell. I have discovered many muscles and joints I had forgotten I had. :((
Taking a break tomorrow and dogsitting for my middle son....Yay!! Knitting time!!!
They look lovely and warm.
Good luck with your painting, packing and dogsitting!!!
My favourite variegated diagonals.
Delicious colours, Susan....I love half and half diagonals. :))
Lovely. I really like that blue variegated.
Totally agree, Susan....two GREAT squares, Maggie. :))
These are lovely and colourful. Goodcolour combinations!
Yesterday Alice of the Earlston Wednesday Club came round with a bag packed full of 48 squares - mainly plain janes and striped garters - a wonderful contribution. but like Valerie (though not on the same scale), I will be kept busy "butterflying" them.
Yay for Alice.......LOVE the lemon and lime stripes. :))
More lovely colours.
