"The stitch is just plain all the way both sides but it gives nice even tension. The wool is really cheap from The Base store. It's normally about $1 for a 50gm ball, I prefer wool to acrylic. I can normally get 1 full square and enough left…"
"Oh I love that idea, little jewels! I actually like doing the plain ones as I can watch TV and knit without thinking, but it's nice to add something a little different to break it up a bit. Thankyou all for your lovely comments."
Hi Annie - you commented on my large squares - the smaller squares (4) are sewn together. I then worked out how much they differed from my desired width - divided that by two to get the width of the border. I then picked up along each side and knitted until I had the required border width.
Hi Anie, welcome to our warm KAS community. We hope you will enjoy the forum and your region's group. Thanks for your contribution to the forum so far.
There are lots of great discussions going on in the forum, including the monthly challenges.
We are still continuing our July Challenge - keep a newborn warm, making blankets for abandoned babies, and there have been some great results for the August in Africa challenge - you can see photographs under the photos menu. (Details of both challenges in the main forum). We're also embarking on our September challenge which is also under "challenges" in the forum.
