These squares will be GREAT contrasting squares, Karen.....and wow, sooooo neat!!!

Wonderful to use up that 'hard' to use yarn especially with its high % of wool to keep the children warm.  They will be lovely complimentary pieces with reds/yellows and picture squares.

Karen, would you please post a photo in the Photo Gallery so I can add these squares to the Album.  Thanks !

Knitting a hat and hand-warmers set has been my favorite thing to knit lately. I play around with colors and stitches I like to make a simple hat&hand-warmers to keep one more child warm . I have knitted patterns and used tips I learned from Christine Johnson and Kathy Chantrell as well used a pattern Lesley shared with me once.Wendy's and Rachel's beanies are inspiring as well as the work of all KasSisters. Thank you, Ladies!! 
This is a new hat (hand-warmers coming up soon) I just finished last night,  "September 3rd". 

Love this pattern Diana !   Looking forward to the hand-warmers...any time is a good time to post on a theme :-)

KAS sisters are always willing to support each other with patterns and suggestions/tips, knowing we are all keeping our children warm. 

This is a really pretty hat, Diana. LOVE the colour combination and the patterning you have made.

Your knitting is always so neat.  :))

Beanie and hand warmers set completed, finally !! 

I loved the hat. Now add the hand warmers and it makes a gorgeous set for a child!  Thanks so much Diana.  Never too late to add to a theme:-)

Thanks, Linda.  I made some changes as you could see. 

OK so I am hugely late with my August items.  Apologies, it has been a rough few weeks and I over extended myself.  

I have a couple more somewhere but I do not know where at the moment!

Made by working in two different directions - I love squares like this!

I really like stripes - and this one I liked the rhythm of the way the stripes went thicker and thinner.

 I like doing Plain Janes whilst watching films at the cinema - this one was Antman and the Wasp.

If I have a variegated yarn, I like to do diagonals or even mitred squares.  

Not a problem Rebecca.  Anytime is a good time to add to a theme.  You've been busy organizing the 10th Anniversay party for KAS so I'm surprised you had time to knit (silly me, of course we always have time to knit/crotchet for our children lol)

These are lovely squares, I especially like the bumblebee square.

Yum, yum, yum!!!! I LOVE the variegated yarn in your diagonal square, Rebecca. Gorgeous stripes!!

Your multi-directional square....do you have a pattern for it by any chance, pretty please???? I have only seen a pattern for it in a scarf and I couldn't make head nor tail of it.  :((
