Thanks for my Birthday Wishes Christine. It is a lovely roomy bag that can be used for several different purposes. Enjoy x x

Thanks for the friend requests, Christine; a pleasure to accept. I've only recently started crocheting and find your beautiful squares and stunning blankets such an inspiration!

At 1:04pm on April 1, 2016, Sarah-jane Stocks said…

Thank you so much Christine for sending me such a lovely message welcoming me to your group :-)

I am 58 a mother of 2 and a Grandma of 3 and my eldest child was 40 just before Christmas last year!

I have knitted for most of my life and recently taught myself to Crochet too. I am really looking forward to getting to know all of you and of course knitting (& crochet) many squares too :-)

I inherited a huge amount of wool on cones from my husband's grandmother's estate when she passed away. She created many beautiful baby outfits on her knitting machine (which I also received) which is resting in its box in the loft untouched :-) as I admit to being a little afraid of it with its beeping and flashing lcd screen when it's plugged in and it's vicious looking hooks or maybe needles which look like they're just waiting to ensnare the sleeves of an unsuspecting hand knitter like myself! Lol

I think my husband will be the one who hooks himself into it to learn to knit with it!

I have a look at the coned wool it is mostly 4ply which will when 2 ends are twisted together will make some Lovely DK to knit squares toys and ?clothing? with for the children in Africa :-)

I am going to bed now but I will take a quick look at the patterns before I go to sleep so I can sleep on it.

This I find is the best way to get knitting patterns into my head so that when I wake up ( after my chores are done) I can sit and knit :-)

So I'll wish you all a very good night and pleasant (creating) dreams and I'll be back tomorrow knitting 

Kindest Regards, Sarah-jane Xx

Dear Christine

Thank you so much for your lovely message which I very much appreciate.  I do not have the skill  of so many KAS contributors who make such stunning picatorial squares.  But I do get a lot of [pleasure  from working with colours - with patchwork and cross stitch my other favourite crafts. 

My mother taught me granny squares many years ago, but I have never come to grips with reading a crochet pattern - not helped by the different UK/USA terminology,  It has taken me ages this week trying  to make a simple crochet flower, until I came across an excellent You Tube tutorial. 

I am delighted to combine the enjoyment from my hobby with helping such as worthy case as KAS.

Good luck with all your KAS activities - your January squares are wonderful in their design and colour. 

Best wishes for 2016..  Susan (Donaldson)

Thank you Christine!

I am always busy making for my 4 children, but its not been cold enough here to warrant them wearing any mittens or hats!
I made my first pair hand warmers yesterday as Ive been laid up with bad tooth ache, after seeing the update that they were clean out of them.
Hope to make more squares and make up a bundle worthy of posting!
Cheers!
Samantha
