"Patricia, thank you for hosting a very successful June theme. It was so inspirational to see the variety of squares, blankets, and colors this month. Just goes to show you the unforeseen things in life can be very, very positive.
"What an amazing display of beauty this month. Well done, everyone!
Thank you, Patricia, for hosting such a great theme.
I'm back and forth a lot over our summer months here in NS. I check in whenever I can, but getting online…"
"Fab squares - doubles, trebles, quartets, pirouettes.......? Ha ha. I always find purple a luxurious comforting colour.
Tremendous hosting Patricia. Quiet or not the quality and ideas have been sublime. ❤️.…"
"Sadly Karen, my stash isn’t the only thing that’s bulging...... I am too! I needed to lose a lot of weight before lockdown, but I’m afraid when staying at home, eating became a very enjoyable past time! So I have started ’to…"
"I loved reading your post, Susanne. You have an amazing Mum. My mother was born in 1923 and also had knitting lessons at school but I don't think they can have been anywhere near as advanced as your Mum's. I remember her telling the story…"
"Thank you Chris, and everybody else who's contributed this month. I've been really surprised at how quiet it's been as I thought the lockdown would lead to more crafting rather than less, and also the need to communicate with other…"
"I'm doing exactly the same thing, Chris - I'm currently making a blanket from the latest purchase I made as it was easier to start on that than hunt through the rest. Your yarn has made such an interesting pattern - good job you had enough…"
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
Clicking on the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page, will possibly answer many initial questions you may have .Any other questions...please ask...we love to help. :)) You can also find a packing slip (which goes inside the parcel) to send with parcels there.
If you'd like to see what other KASers have been making please click on the photo tab at the top of the page....and feel free to add photos of your creations...we would love to see them. Just click on 'add photos' and follow the prompts.
If you want to see the most active discussions at present, you may like to click on the 'main page' tab and they are listed in the centre of that page...just pick one and click on it. It is a large website, but with so much fun and info.
"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.
