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.

Beautiful poem, Estelle.  Thank you for sharing it with us ... xo

A fabulous, informative month, Amy. I remembered I had a camel applique just waiting for a chance to get to Africa.

A cute camel in your ‘zebra’ square :))

I can just picture this camel outside the pyramids in Egypt... waiting to runaway with an unsuspecting tourist across the desert. 

Wonderful zebra square of white and black.

A fun square, Patricia.   I'm loving all the wonderful appliques this month, and really admire all the people willing to poke holes in their fingers to get them sewed on!

Oooh, what a fun square, Patricia! xo

Thanks to all for the kind comments about hosting.  I had so much fun with this theme.

Until next time...

A Safari Through Africa

Giraffes Galore

No safari is complete without a sighting of giraffes.

My memory is seeing a group with legs spread, bending over, drinking from the Zambezi River.

i discovered just now that a group of giraffes is called a 'Tower'.  I didn't know that.

Heres a blanket for a boy.
