Square Circle Forum

I am delighted to host another  KAS monthly and there  is something for everyone in this month's topic,   Whatever your level of skill,  let your imagination run riot with your choice of yarn, stitch, colour, pattern, texture, motif, and design to create squares, beanie hats, hand warmers and toys, 

Here are just a few ideas to get your needles clicking, though members from the southern hemisphere will have their own interpretations of the seasons. Be inspired by the colours of nature, by activities, events, and by food.   Below are some wonderful examples that KAS members have already contributed this year.

SPRING

Green, yellow, white, purple.

Snowdrops, crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths, aubrietia, irises.

Easter eggs, Easter bonnets, chickens, bunnies and lambs, rainbows.

Spring into action in the fresh air,  or Spring clean in the house!   SUMMER

Cottage garden flowers – roses, delphiniums, nasturtiums, cornflowers, sweet peas. poppies in a cornfield – and lots, lots  more.  

Sun, sea, sand, beach balls, swimming, cricket bats, tennis racquets

Salads, ice-cream, lollies, barbecues.

National Events – France (Bastille Day)  USA (Independence Day), UK (Trooping the Colour) - and I am sure many more.AUTUMN/FALL

Gold, russet, bronze, copper, orange, green.

Berries, leaves, pumpkins, apples, Halloween, Bonfire Night   

Football, rugby, hockey

WINTER

Blue & white ice colours, log fires. Christmas colours & motifs, winter sports.

Even if you have only time to make a few items, they will all be welcomed. You will be helping to bring colour. cheerfulness and warmth into the children's lives.

I look forward to seeing your contributions on the Forum.

A lovely big apple to keep the doctor at bay!    Thank you, Amy. 

Summer and autumn in my  favourite knitting style - variegated wool in  diagonal squares.

Two very pretty squares, Susan....the autumn square really POPS!......and the colours in your summer square are just beautiful !!

Absolutely gorgeous squares and blankets already!!  I'm slow getting into this discussion but I thank you, Susan, for stepping up to lead us through a year of beautiful seasons this month :)

Where I live it's trying to be Autumn, although our temps are still too high to feel like a serious attempt.  However, the beautiful colors in the leaves around us are proof that Mother Nature is at least trying :)

So here's a little contribution from me.  Some lovely autumn colors plus a link to just one of my several favorite renditions of "Autumn Leaves" ... this one done by Ferrante and Tether& Teicher ... xo

Beautiful yarn, beautiful squares, beautiful song. I think I love the Eva Cassidy version best of all. We're also having an Indian Summer but I believe it's all about to change in the next few days.

WOW!  That's awesome!  Thank you, Patricia.  I just googled an Eva Cassidy rendition of Autumn Leaves and I love it!  It has now become one of my ever-expanding favorite versions :)))  Here's the link:

Thank you, Gloria, for your kind message, and for the gorgeous squares - love the yarn, the patterns and the Autumn hues.  Autumn is my favourite season - has that something to do with my birthday then!  You have captured the colours beautifully. Thank you. 

LOVE the yarn in your squares, Glo, such pretty patterning it has created.

Thank you both, Glo and Patricia, for the versions of Autumn Leaves that you shared. I think I have only ever heard the instrumental version and didn't know it by name, before. Think I must have heard it in a movie or somewhere.  :)) 

It is cold, wet and miserable  here today, so here are two Christmas inspired squares to cheer us up for winter.

Two cheery squares, indeed, Susan. LOVE them both! Winter doesn't seem to want to leave us, totally, just yet.

I was in my local post office about a week or so ago and they had a sign up that said 84 days 'til Christmas.....nooooo, not yet!!

Loved looking through the photos of beautiful squares I missed last week!

Here are a few more autumnish squares:

October 2018 - The Seasons - Autumn

These donated "squares" [actually 8 inches x 9 inches] are also in Autumn colours.  I'll be adding flowers to the black ones. Since there are 6 squares the length adds up to 54 inches, thus I need only crochet one inch on the end of a couple of squares to make the 56 inches needed for a blanket row...and I have the necessary yarn!

October 2018 - The Seasons - Autumn

LOVING your wheel spoke squares, Linda....such gorgeous colour combos.  :))

Your flowers really make the black squares pop!!!!!
