Hmmm, luckily there are many mods to help.....I have somehow managed to change my reply toolbar (think that's what its called) to something looking quite different when I posted this discussion....now, if only I knew what I had done, I could change it back......lol. 

 Bev, it's not you - I seem to be having the same problem. The dreaded Ning again?

Thanks Lesley.....I just assumed it was something I had done.....lol. Hope it 'rights' itself soon.......when it comes to computers I like things to look and stay the same.....lol

Bev, my tool bar changed a couple of days ago.  The icons look different but are in the same order.  Also, it would appear that we can now change the font size from small to large or larger.  Perhaps it's due to the anticipated changes???  I have not been informed ... just guessing ... xo

Looks like  'our' Ning has an update.  My PC has stayed the same but the reply box on the iPad now offers the same options as the PC, though it looks different!

 I tried googling for an answer without success other than one comment that said Ning was upgrading their system.

Guess we'll get used to this after a while :-)

Everyone is right, Lesley.  If you find you need assistance, just ask.  There is someone always willing to help.  How do I know this?  Because I, too, have had to ask - many times :)) xo

How wonderful - I shall add the list to the UK Facebook page........ and I can feel my fingers itching already with some of these themes - I am already brimming with ideas!

For me this is the best list ever, I think. So inspiring, I may even have to get knitting for KAS again instead of sending the money I would have spent on postage to fund distributions.  Just for a couple of packages in 2018 maybe.  Ideas that grabbed me as I read were:-

              Football teddies and puppets

              Girlie teddies and puppets

              Squares with stripes of eyelash/boucle/mohair and all the other difficult to knit yarns, great way to get rid......!

              Scrappy squares, teddies and puppets

Many thanks to all of you who think up and organise the projects, you have my very best respect   Roz xx

Thank you once again for coming up with such inspiring themes and catchy titles to keep us busy throughout 2018. 

I've just been having a good sort through my yarn to see which colours I need to buy for a new blanket project for an upcoming monthly theme. I'm ashamed to say that I find I probably already have enough to sustain the Odds & Ends theme throughout the whole year, never mind one month. That won't stop me buying the new colours I "need" though!

Oh Patricia, I could echo every word of this :))  Had to buy more yarn yesterday to complete a current project, and today received a notice from the Post Office to collect a parcel which I know contains  ........   you've guessed it!    And this while my stash seems to be multiplying every time I turn my back.  Why is it we never have just the colour we 'need' - lol .  Should certainly have enough Odds and Ends by December!

And I'll definitely need to make sure I have sufficient seaside colours!
