Hello all - What do you think about linking together while we are all separated by covid-19?  

How about a KAS KAL?

What is a KAS KAL?  You ask....... Well........  KAL stands for Knit Along.  It is a time when we are all working in a similar piece of knitting and can ask each other for help, share photos of how we are doing, encourage each other........ and learn how to do some of the KAS patterns as well as using up some of our stash.

I have designed a blanket that we can all work on, one square at a time.  It will be a fun way to learn about Plain Janes, Diagonal Squares, Stripes, Framed Squares and Mitre Squares......all at our own pace, and all explained really simply, with lots of opportunity for anyone to ask for help or clarification as well.

I propose that we start this on May Day and we end it..... when we finish!  

This is suitable for all of us.  That means that some of us, who are

experienced or confident knitters may be able to get through it. 

relatively quickly.  Others who are working from home, juggling

work and kids, or just not very experienced or not very confident

about knitting may want to take a little longer to work through it.    

I hope some of you will feel able to join in - keep your eyes peeled for further information before we start!

Such pretty yarn 

A delightful square. Love diagonals. I have to start knitting them. 

That looks lovely!  Well done.

Lovely work - and very neat as well.

How do we do the edge stitches?
(ie. slip the first, or K into back of first stitch etc. to make the edgings that are easier for the Gogos to sew the squares together)
or do we just knit the first stitche on each row)

I finished my first Plain Jane incorporating the first and last stitch edgings. I also knit "Continental style" so I tried Karla Bystrianská's suggestion and it worked for me. (Knitting slowly right now as there is a long wait for hand surgery due to the lockdowns) I hope I will have enough of this colour to make 5 squares!

That is a lovely shade of turquoise - and you certainly picked the right place to display it!!

I agree with Rebecca . It´s a lovely colour.

Beautiful square, Arlene.  Very pretty color :)))

I LOVE lilccs, and yours are lovely.  Mine aren't out yet but I'm hoping they will be soon.  I love their delicate flowers and wonderful scent ... xo  

What a pretty Plain Jane, Arlene.  Lovely photo. Are those Japanese hydrangeas? 

I must try Karla's tips. I'm continental knitter when is in the round. 

These are lilacs. My mom-in-law brought two rootlet from her tree when I was first married. Her mom gave her some from her tree as a wedding gift she received some from her mom. So this tree goes back generations now.

Oh that is just wonderful - what a great heritage!
