"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.
I've been 'out' for a while, but am returning to find an incredible selection of work from all your talented fingers! Grannies, garters, toys, G-Os, blankets ... all simply stunning! I love all the colors and the beautiful variegateds. The blues are absolutely fabulous and, oddly enough, even the pinks are ... well ... kinda pretty ... LOL Well done everyone! xo
And fun to look at, Lesley!!! I love your color combinations ... especially the one on the top right :))) So bright and cheery! xo
These are so cheerful. They are beautiful.
Well, I'll have to put in my ten cents worth and say that I especially love the two on the left (top & bottom)......but really, they are all very pretty, Lesley. The colours and the patterns are so pretty. :))
Wow! What a marvellous amount of handwarmers for the children. Lots of warm hands. I like the colours in your yarn.
LOVE the colours in your variegated, Marion.
45 pair???!!!! I am in TOTAL awe of your speed and ability......so many children will have lovely, warm hands. :))
Thank you, Bev. I had ordered the same wool as you. It's so nice to work with that I might have got carried away!
