Welcome Everyone to the May theme.  :))

This month, let's share our love of music, our love for 'our' children...and have a fun time doing it!!

Squares for this month might include appliques, intarsia, duplicate stitch of.....Djembe or other drums, other African musical instruments, piano keys, guitars, trumpets, musical notes, etc.  
I have created a couple of charts for African instruments, which I am happy to share and there are numerous charts online for trumpets, guitars, drums, etc.
However, this may not be everyone's 'cup of tea', so........
how about this......
Pattern of the month (PoM) for May is PJs. 
PJs (Plain Janes, as we affectionately call them) are garter stitch or single crochet stitch squares....but they can also be textured squares created in a single colour. They are always in demand as they form the 'backbone' of each and every blanket. Almost every blanket created by the volunteers and Gogos in South Africa has mainly PJs with just a few picture squares or stripes in them, so the importance of PJs to a blanket, can NEVER be underestimated.  :))
 
This month for a little fun, it would be great if, when you post a pic of your PJ or your picture square, you could tell us, or post a link, of a song that has your colour or your instrument in it.
For example.....
WaffleStitch
MAY 2015 THEME - Shades of yellow
So, let's have fun making squares that feature instruments and/or PJs with colour!! Bring on those tunes, Everyone....there's plenty out there.....
And for a little extra......
Every time you post a pic of a square/squares with the name or link of a song,  your name will go into a draw for a little 'shopping trip' in the KASshop. There will be three 'trips' up for grabs. So please, get knitting, crocheting and looming....and let's make beautiful music together.

A shoking video, but a great song, and definitely, I'm not that kind of teacher. :-)

Brilliant interpretation, Paola.

Your squares are SUPER, Paola!!

I remember this song well.  There is actually a house, close to the highway, in a neighbouring town that has a fake brick wall painted on it with the words, 'The Wall', just like the album cover and in the same colours and lettering. 

Clever squares Paola just right for the song :))

Ohmygoodness looking at the color changes!!! Wow Paola. Fantastic square. The child that gets this blanket will not tire of examining them. 

Hi, Bev and all KAS folk.   I'm loving this theme, and have so enjoyed the beautiful music and blankets/squares.

I had this sparkly purple yarn and was thinking I had a difficult choice between Purple Rain by Prince, and Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix.  Since the Prince song was used already, I'm taking the easy road, and selecting Purple Haze to accompany. 

(Camera seems to think this yarn is blue, but really it is purple!)

LOVING your squares, Sharon....it's always intriguing when you take one yarn and make it look so different by using different stitches.Great collection!

Your camera and mine must be related.  :))

Great song choice. I had forgotten Purple Haze, but who could forgot that line....'Excuse me while I kiss the sky'.

Six beautifully crafted squares, I love the yarn!

Amazing stitches variety Sharon. I see your work and my mind just says I had no idea the same yarn could change like that.
