A fabulous blanket !!

It's beautiful, Helen.  :))

Wow! That is really lovely.  A true piece of art. Some one will treasure it. I know I would. :)

Fees?

I mailed two packages of squares from a different post office (Japan) and they made me put a value on the package. I put 1 yen on one and 10 yen on the other. They weren't happy with the 1 yen amount. I argued with them that the other post office had never made me do that before. I will go back to the main post office next time I mail anything!

Is there a way to find out if KAS is going to be charged a fee for my packages? If so, I'd like to pay the feel. I can just donate that amount. 

Thanks,

Juli

Hi Juli - The KAS office in SA is closed at present. Ronda is currently on holiday with family. We will contact them and find out , have these parcels been sent recently ?  it might be that we will have to wait until they arrive ?

Yes, I sent them in November. I'm not sure of the date, but can try to figure it out. They were sent by ship so it might be a while. 

Thanks. 

Juli we opened a parcel with your lovely lilic completed blanket yesterday.

Last week we opened a parcel of yours with beautiful squares. I've used them in a blanket with a smilie face in the center. I handed it in yesterday so I'm sure you will see it soon on The Blanket Room.

I will post the blanket on my face book page later in the week. Just need to finish some borders for this weeks blankets.

Hi Juli, Your squares are in the just edited January 2017 squares list. Hope these are the 3 parcels you were looking for. :)

Hi,

after finishing all my Christmas projects I went to my local yarn shop and found out that the company Red Heart are stopping all imports to the Czech republic (where I live). After sorting out my yarn I found out I have loads of odd skeins of Red Heart Detroit (http://www.redheart.co.uk/yarn/detroit). My question is if this yarn is thick enough for squares or if it would be better if I double up the yarn so the squares are warmer,

Thank You.

Hi Lucie.

Thanks for joining us.  :))

From checking on your above link, it seems that the yarn is equivalent to an 8 ply (in Australia, where I live) and that is the ply that I normally knit with. However, I do know that some 8 ply yarns can be thin (more like a 'baby' weight yarn) so, if you think it feels too thin, feel free to double up, as I occasionally do. Whatever you decide, your squares will find a place in blankets of squares of the same thickness.

Thank you for caring. :)) 

Hi Bev,

thank You for the quick reply. I'm working on a "checkerboard square" right now and while it's pretty it doesn't seem too warm. I'll try some variation of the rib stitch next and see how it goes. 

By the way are there any preferred patterns for the squares?

Thanks

Hi Lucie.

Plain Janes as they are affectionately referred to, are our garter stitch squares, which make up a lot of our blankets, but if you feel like doing something different, there is the KASpattern book with some square patterns and also some more patterns here:

http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/member-s-patterns-squares

Please feel free to do any pattern that you would like that is reasonably solid and not too lacy.

Thanks again.  :))
