Hello KASfriends.  Welcome to October!  

This month we are sharing our 


Since music is one of my favourite things, I thought I would begin with a song to get us in the mood.  Oscar Hammerstein II wrote it, but Julie Andrews sings it the way I like to hear it.  Oh ... and by the way, it’s from one of my favourite movies.

So what is your favourite:










We all have favourite “stuff”… maybe even several favourite “stuffs”.  They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, places, and seasons.  Everyone’s taste is different … that’s what makes each one of us unique and special!  So come on and show us your “specialness” by making a square with your favourite something in mind!

Some of my favourites are …

granny squares … 

PJ squares … 

Illusion squares ...

crochet squares ...

Tunisian crochet squares ...

cro-knit squares … 

stripey squares

Christmas squares ...

whimsical squares ...

But my all-time favourite is …


So come on and join the fun.  Make a square … or several … in honor of your  favourite  anything!

Who knows … you might even discover a new one along the way.

  • I think Fannie meant to post this here!


  • Here finally is the memorial blanket that I had hoped to post in October!  Life does get in the way sometimes :)  I haven't sewn it up yet, but wanted to get it posted before we got TOO far into November!

  • You know what they say, better late than never!  These are a couple that I managed to finish, in the midst of all the craziness of October :)  I posted them on the photo page, and so I am just now getting them onto the discussion....sorry for the delay!

    2965196961?profile=RESIZE_1024x1024Well, here are the last 8 squares for this month's blanket -  some glamorous Grannies! The top ones are actually a Cadbury purple but they look blue on here. And the red yarn is glittery. 

  • Thank you to everyone who contributed to KAS this month.  You have made such a difference in the lives of many children and you should be extremely proud of yourselves.  

    Since children are another of my favourite things, I will leave you this month with a boy square and a girl square.  This is Tunisian crochet, one of my favourite techniques.


    My "first ever" challenge is now one of my favourite memories :)  And you, my dear KASfriends, are among my favourite people. 

    Thank you also for all of your positive responses to our KASsong!  Please keep sharing it and spreading the word.  I will now pass the baton to Linda Maltby for our November theme ... Bugs, Slugs, and Hugs! 

    Together, let's keep things "humming" right along ;o)  xo

    I end this challenge , which was full of surprises due to Gloria's supertalent to "circumvent" us all (LOL), with a mitered square. Gloria I have had a lot of fun, you brought the KAS family together. Thank you for a wonderful time. May the KAS song bring luck and I hope that many people will be inspired and start knitting squares. Hugs for you and your wonderful family! xo

  • Gloria, thank you for a wonderful challenge....It is one of my favourites :-)  Lots of beautiful squares to brighten the children's blankets and other wonderful items.   As well, you gave us the mystery of the 8-inch-square and the fabulous video.  Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!

    Earlier you mentioned you couldn't get the video to load so I did a bit of investigating and here it is:
