DIAGONALS ARE FOREVER AND SASSY STRIPES

hosted by Karen Gordon

Hi everyone!!   To me this theme screams "Anything Goes".  

Haven't we all got some random oddments of wool that have been long buried in our wool stash?   In my eyes the bigger the clash of colours the better.   Let's make our squares really ping and zing so they stand out and make a plain blanket into a unique piece of cosy art.

Diagonal or stripey squares are the answer to our stash spares!!

Going back over past photos on the forum  you can see such wonderful  examples of these squares

Since being asked to host this theme , I have created some of my own diagonals , using up the odds and ends

So if you have never made a diagonal square , now it is the time to have a go, you can have so much fun with this.*****WARNING**** they are very addictive :))

The Knitted Diagonal Square

What pretty wool Christine. I cannot crochet, but I'd guess this took some considerable time and effort to complete. Sassy stripes at their best. Well done X

Beautiful Christine.

Well Maggie...... haven't you just taken to diagonal square knitting like a duck to water! Yay! It pleases me so much that you've gained confidence and experimented with colours and stripes so effectively. Kudos!!

Thank you Karen.

Wowzers - what a great selection! These certainly catch the eye Heather. Smashing use of colours, stripes and neat knitting and crocheting too.
Love the warm colors and the sparkles!!

More beautiful sparkly yarn I just love them.

I put together some leftovers and crocheted these 40x40 cm squares. It´s raining today so the colours look rather dark in the photo.

Absolutely gorgeous super-neat squares Karla. Very well done and thank you X

As I was browsing through the pages I noticed so many beautiful squares, interesting techniques , great ideas to follow and even the whole gorgeous blankets, hand warmers and Christine´s cute go-over. I guess It´ll be a very" fertile month"!
