I am delighted to host another  KAS monthly and there  is something for everyone in this month's topic,   Whatever your level of skill,  let your imagination run riot with your choice of yarn, stitch, colour, pattern, texture, motif, and design to create squares, beanie hats, hand warmers and toys, 

Here are just a few ideas to get your needles clicking, though members from the southern hemisphere will have their own interpretations of the seasons. Be inspired by the colours of nature, by activities, events, and by food.   Below are some wonderful examples that KAS members have already contributed this year.

SPRING

Green, yellow, white, purple.

Snowdrops, crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths, aubrietia, irises.

Easter eggs, Easter bonnets, chickens, bunnies and lambs, rainbows.

Spring into action in the fresh air,  or Spring clean in the house!   SUMMER

Cottage garden flowers – roses, delphiniums, nasturtiums, cornflowers, sweet peas. poppies in a cornfield – and lots, lots  more.  

Sun, sea, sand, beach balls, swimming, cricket bats, tennis racquets

Salads, ice-cream, lollies, barbecues.

National Events – France (Bastille Day)  USA (Independence Day), UK (Trooping the Colour) - and I am sure many more.AUTUMN/FALL

Gold, russet, bronze, copper, orange, green.

Berries, leaves, pumpkins, apples, Halloween, Bonfire Night   

Football, rugby, hockey

WINTER

Blue & white ice colours, log fires. Christmas colours & motifs, winter sports.

Even if you have only time to make a few items, they will all be welcomed. You will be helping to bring colour. cheerfulness and warmth into the children's lives.

I look forward to seeing your contributions on the Forum.

GREAT intro, Susan.....and so many wonderful ideas. Thank you.

Thank You , Susan for hosting "The Seasons" theme.  Endless possibilities.

My thanks for using in your presentation one of my hat & hand-warmers set. 

My first squares for this month

Oh wow, Susan!! GORGEOUS squares. My faves are the top two. The right one is so sweet and the left one is stunning!

You started already. It's barely 10:00am in New York on the 29th of September.  Lovely and colorful beginning with your trademark grannies squares. Thanks!!

Yes, Diana, I am quick off the mark, but I am busy tomorrow and wanted plenty of time to upload my introduction and images, particularly  as I had a nightmare time last year trying to do the same task. Still -  that means an extra day’s knitting on the Seasons!  

You're a Star ! Thanks.

These are delightful representations of the 4 seasons.  I do like your signature granny squares and how versatile they are.

Love your intro Susan !   Great examples to get us thinking.

Autumn has started here with a 'bang' so I'll be thinking autumn colours for a start :-)

Oh crumbs!  I am still finishing off the squares for the September theme!!!!!

I had not thought of linking to events that happen in the month - great idea.  I will just have to check my stash and see if the right colours are there........ LOL!!!!

Autumn - did these before I broke my wrist last November - however, this is just the right time to share them!

 

Your squares are so cheery, Pam, and will brighten up any blanket with their Autumn hues.  I hope your wrist has healed well and you are back knitting and crocheting again.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
