Thank you for your lovely comments about my chunky jumper. You asked how I did the bottom section on the green/blue jumper. I used one strand of 'boucle stuff!' and one strand of DK together, which made it nice and thick. I have attached a link to the pattern, which I can open but somebody else had trouble with it. Let me know if it doesn't work and I will copy and paste for you! Love your squares by the way, so creative, bright and happy! Kathy :o)
Greetings Molly! Chiming in late from up in Canada above MN. Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African Aids orphans. Glad to have you with us. It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world.
The Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section) show the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I also recommend the Anyone Want to Chat Discussion section, which contains the Our Furry Companions and Yarnaholics threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic! You joined us just in time to contribute some warm squares, hats and garments for the children, as their winter is approaching as ours leaves. Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!
You asked about the switching colours... It's quite easy actually (but a little bit hard for me to explain in English...)! When you start with a new row, you use both colours for the first stitch. Then knit 2 rows with that colour and do the same when you start with the second colour. This way you take the unused colour up on the side of your square. I hope you understand this, otherwise I will make some pictures to make it easier :)
Hi Molly, to add photos to the discussion :
-Go to the comment box in Pick it from the Garden in May.
-make a comment in the box
-click the second icon ("image" shows when the cursor is hovered over it)
-add a photo the way you added to the photo page.
-make the photo width 300 pixels, otherwise it takes up the whole page ,( I've had to fix a few photos LOL)
Let me know if it doesn't work and we'll try something else.
Looking forward to more beautiful crochet squares.
Welcome, Molly, from suburban Philadelphia. So glad you joined us!
Hi Molly, welcome to the forum ! We are so pleased you have joined our world-wide family of knitters and crocheters. We are dedicated to keeping the children in South Africa warm.
If you have any questions about anything, just post in Questions, Answers and Help and someone will be able to provide an answer.
Love your squares ! They will look great in a blanket. They will also be perfect for this month’s challenge Pick it from the Garden in May. When you have a chance would you post the photos in that discussion ?
Every month, a theme is chosen to challenge the forum members to create something new and different......it could be a new colour, a different stitch or a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting. This month we are focusing on the garden.
Have you had a chance to look at the e-zines ? They provide wonderful photos of how our squares are helping these vulnerable children. Their smiles are priceless !
After you have a look around you might like to join the US group. The group is talking about adopting another crèche....last year the group adopted 3 !
