"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.
Thanks Diana for the 'refresh' tip when trying to reply....worked a treat. :))
What a great idea! I have never thought of making cars from grannies! Amy, your vehicles are beautiful!
They are brilliant colors and so striking with the borders. I too hope they become focal spots on different boyish blankets.
Two contrasting variegated squares.
Two beauties, Susan. The top one reminds me of a stormy day at the beach, where the waves get all 'choppy' and the water turns more bluey-grey and the sandy shoreline.
The bottom one makes me think of Spring (that we are supposedly in) and everything looks 'renewed' and the colours/bulbs/shrubs in the garden become more beautiful and lively. :))
A great collection, Karen. You have some pretty variegated, too. Those handwarmers are very stylish. :))
I am working on some variegated handwarmers with yarn that I bought online, from the UK. :))
Well done, Karen. Many thanks for the so much needed handwarmers.
Yay, that part it takes quite a bit of time . No short cuts.
