Thanks for the update Pam. I'll look forward to someone sharing a pattern for a crochet cuddle. Until then I'll make some squares!

Hi Pam,

I never ever thought I could knit a Teddy bear. Kathy Platts gave me the pattern and now I just love making them for the children to cuddle:))

Thanks Pam,

He is my favourite so far. I hugged him for ages and would love to see him being loved by a youngster:))

Thanks Pam,

I am picturing three youngsters with teddy puppets on their hands talking to each other. Great fun:))

Yes, Linda gets some credit, but she had a good student, so you both get credit.

And, as you said, mustn't get upset about the yarn things.   Or as we say, this is a "first world problem".   In the third world, it is just finding food to eat, and something that will keep you warm.   How lucky we are!   

I'm enjoying the time with Craig, but it will end soon; he flies back to AUS on Wednesday.   While he was here, I made him some fingerless gloves, a headband, and some warm and cushy slippers, all of which he says he loves.   I also bought some yarn on sale to make him a hat, and of course, got some other soft discounted yarn for KAS.   Yeah!   a new box of yarn to play with .... like I didn't have any before that!   Ha ha.

Hi, Pam,   I just saw your beautiful blue and orange granny square on the July page.   It is a winner!   Your stitching looks so neat ... have you really been doing this only a few months????   You are amazing.    

Crochet uses a lot more yarn than knitting, so if you are used to knitting and the yarn it takes you will be surprised by the way crochet eats up the skeins.   One estimate that I read about said you need a length of yarn that is 3 times the length of the row for a row of single crochet.  Unless of course you crochet much tighter or much looser, LOL ....In truth, I have found that doesn't quite work for me.   I crochet a tiny bit tight, and still need more yarn than that.   Don't know if any of this will help you, but it might give you a way to estimate if a yarn scrap is long enough.   In any event, your work is looking GREAT, so just keep on doing what you're doing!

Thanks, Pam.   Good thing I tossed this to you, because I had completely forgotten about the memory blankets.   That's why we pay you the big bucks .... LOL.

I love the granny squares you've been making, and hope you have a minute or two each day to work on your own squares.   But you do so much for KAS, and I don't want that to stop, either.   Maybe we need to figure out a way to donate hours to your day!

We are having a beautiful summer here, hope yours is the same.   

Craig is home for a few weeks, so we are enjoying our time together, but have been quite busy rushing around, but had a wrench in the works when he developed a tooth problem and needed an emergency root canal!   Yuck!   (I'm sorry for him, but just glad it isn't me!!!)

Keep on.   hugs, sharon

Hi, Pam.   I know you are busy, and I hate to bother you, but have a question for you.   I got a comment on the photo titled Pink Sampler Blanket, which says

                Comment by ailsa campbell on Friday

I love this, is it possible that we would also be allowed to attempt something like this?

I'm not entirely sure if I understand the question, but I'm guessing that she is asking about making a whole blanket rather than separate squares.   In any case, I'm reluctant to speak on behalf of KAS, to give permission to do something different than squares.   But I don't just want to ignore the question and hope she finds an answer somewhere.   Would you like to jump in and answer her question for me?   Or can you give me a bit of direction and I will then respond to her.

Thanks for your help, and keep on with that massive stack of squares.   Hugs, Sharon
