A SAFARI THROUGH AFRICA

This month we will travel across the continent of Africa with most of our attention on South Africa.

We will explore the treasures of the Egyptian pyramids, the wonders of the Okavango Delta, the majesty of Victoria Falls, the flowing waters of the Nile River, the smells and colors of a Moroccan Bazaar, the sands of the Sahara Desert, the snow capped mountains of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the beauty of our beloved South Africa.

Our squares, blankets, toys, hand-warmers and beanies can show us the colors of this continent from the people...

...to the animals...

...to flags...

...and designs...

In past years, Knit a Square has had many distributions on Mandela Day, July 18. We try to have many blankets and items that focus on South Africa, animals, colors and culture.  Our theme is early enough so that we can post our items to be included in this special event.

Since gold can be found in many of the countries in Africa our Color of the Month (COM) is gold/yellow.  Our Pattern of the Year is the Plain Jane, a square of one solid color, usually made with a single crochet or a garter stitch, but they can also be made with other textured stitches.

Love it!!

Love it!

P.E.R.T. PJs.

A PERT PJ is  a Pleasantly, Embellished, Radiant, Twin Plan Jane

PERT PJs are made in one color, but are all the other designs besides the TRUE PJs.

This would include Granny Squares,

or the Wheel Spoke Pattern from our KAS PatternBook.

Do any of our knitter have photos of PERTs that they can post as examples?  

Sorry I don't knit....yet.

Beautiful PERTs, Amy.   

LOVE your squares, Amy...The wheel spoke pattern has always been a favourite of mine...to look at.  :))

Not a PERT PJ that I had planned, as I ran out of the gold yarn, so I have added a coloured border. The SA flag for Mandela day.

A perfect square in every way...especially the flag applique.

Thank you.

It's a BEAUTY, Chris!!

a lovely not-quite PJ square, Chris.  The SA flag is always a welcome touch, I'm sure.

Amy, I will put up my hand to make a yellow/gold P.E.R.T. PJ .  Anyone else care to join me? ... xo

I am working on a TRUE one, but as I only finished three rows before I fell asleep last night, it may take awhile...hahaha.

Thanks so much Glo and Bev.  It will be great to see how many different PERTs the Forum and come up with....mmm....We might just have to start counting.
