"I thought I'd added this bit on but it seems to have disappeared. What I said was that I've realised I'm using English terminology where the pattern uses American. I don't know which you use, Karla, but I'm sure you can work…"
"I've managed to get 8 squares out of my heaven knows how old matinee jacket yarn. I've still got a load of ends to darn in but these are the first two. Like Diane I've gone for the pattern of the month:
and also one of my favourite…"
"Karla, I understand what you're saying but I think you may be looking at the blanket above the red owl whereas I mean the striped one above that.
I've been trying to investigate a bit and I've come up with a stitch called Side Lean…"
"Does anybody know how the striped blanket above the one above the red owl was made? The pattern looks like C2C but has been worked bottom to top. I'd try googling it but I don't know what to look up!"
"I've dug deep for this one. I started this matinee jacket so long ago that I can't remember who it was for or why I didn't finish it. I do know that I've never had the heart to unravel it because it's such a pretty pattern…"
Thank you so much Patricia. I haven't been "visible" on the forum, but behind the scenes I was doing my "job"for KAS and we had a busy time here. I saw all the beautiful items that were made but wasn't able to comment, and naturally I missed the forum too. xo
A warm welcome to Knit A Square, from over here in Western Australia. :))
Knitting or crocheting an 8" square or two or possibly even a few is a wonderful gift for the children. They love to receive their blankets, created from squares, which come from kindly, caring folk such as yourself, from over 60 countries all over our world. You are encouraged to knit/crochet in any stitch you prefer, but we do ask that they not be too 'lacy' as warmth is our highest priority. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone to all our blankets. These are single colour squares that are in garter stitch(knitting) or single crochet as they are very solid and provide a contrast to a picture/striped/patterned square or two that may be added to a blanket.By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of patterns provided by our fellow K-A-Sers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist, you can see what items we are currently focusing on. http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/wish-list-2017

"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."
