OCTOBER 2017 THEME - GORGEOUS GRANNIES & GARTERS AND VARIEGATED WONDERS

"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.

Postcript: 

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.

THANK YOU.

They were nearly as bad as the fluffy yarn Jude.  I can't tell you how many times I had to rip out the stitches. :(

Beautiful squares, Joan, and I particularly like the effect of the top collection. You would never know that you found it tricky to knit, as they are so neat and even.
They are not that neat in real life Susan. I’m probably too fussy !!!

These are all gorgeous squares Joan but the King Cole colours are outstanding!!  xx

They are gorgeous, Joan. Why is the yarn a nightmare to knit?  The result is certainly not a nightmare. They arelovely squares.

But they look like a very colorful, warm and happy dream. Well done, Joan. Thanks.

W O W.... these are gorgeous!! Nightmare or not, they're so eye catching. I have used Riot - what didn't you like about it...??
I found that although it is supposed to be dk, the yarn was not the same thickness throughout, sometimes it was more like 4 ply. Also it is 30% wool so it’s not nice and smooth, the needles kept going through the yarn if I didn’t watch every stitch. I like to watch tv at the same time and don’t normally look at my knitting but with this I had to. I bought 10 balls of it as well :((
Oh dear - I'd suggest putting some to the back of your stash + work on wool you love for a while - you may feel better going back to it some other time.

Aw Joan, I know the pain....I had trouble with some yarn that split, last month....thankfully I only bought five balls.

The K.C. has made up stunning squares....hope that's some consolation.  :))

The bottom squares are yum-yum, too.....so pretty!!!!

Five blankets made by Alison...all granny squares, perfect for this theme.  :)))

Bet you can't guess which one is my favourite???   

Five beauties. Many Thanks Aison. And to you Louise.
