35 SQUARES MAKE A BLANKET

FUNDRAISING IDEA

Recently a booklet of knitting patterns for 8" squares became available for FREE download in our KAS Shop.

I am challenging myself to make one of every pattern by 2022 (17 weeks away!).    Many of the 35 designs are new to me and may prove difficult to accomplish, but I will give them all a good go!!

To benefit KAS through my challenge I would appreciate US$ sponsorship per different pattern square, or as nominated US$  pledge for my total effort.

Wish me luck!  

(Money to be submitted in January please)

Wendy, I agree with Bev.  This is a very pretty square and the colour is nice too.  I just wonder ... does that yarn come in blue? ... haha

It's interesting you mention Best Buys selling yarn.  Here in my part of Canada we have a chain of stores called Best Buy but I don’t go there often. All they sell is uninteresting things like TVs, computers, electronics ... you know, boring stuff like that.  A Best Buy that sells yarn would definitely be worth visiting :))))) ... xo 

Thanks Wendy. I have sent you a pm.  :))

Sadly, I don't think we have a Best Buys over here, but I have sourced Birch yarn before, just not in that pretty pink.

Square 11, the checker square. This one wasn't too hard to knit, but I feel a bit so so about the finished pattern, it is very subtle and doesn't show well in a photo.

Still a BEAUTY, Wendy......and my to do list grows longer...haha.

Square 32 The Waffle Square.

I skipped over quite a few patterns in the book before I found another one I felt capable of knitting. I started on square 12 and got a bit more than half way before I made a mistake and I couldn't fix it, so it got frogged and I had such a hate/hate relationship with the pattern I don't want to start it again!

I really enjoyed doing this waffle pattern though it wasn't too difficult and the pattern worked up really nicely.

Will try the raspberry square soon and I think that might be about it for me from the 35 squares pattern book. I will do more pattern squares from others I have here though as I would like to do a whole pattern blanket.

Wow!! Your ribbing is sooooo NEAT, Wendy!! 

I tend not to do many things that look like rib, 'cos I can never get it looking neat....unless I can hide it in variegated yarn.  :))

Your blanket is going to be a dazzler when it is finished and the fortunate little one who receives it is going to be thrilled with all the different textures.

Hi Karen,

Just wondering what is happening with this challenge now? Should we send our pledges yet?
