HOSTED BY: Christine Johnson


This month is about COUNTING

(and about every kind of square you can imagine)


A Child can count  FIVE fingers                          or TEN fingers 




Count ALL the squares (and get all the way to THIRTY FIVE)





                         Count all the number squares                       




Count all the letter squares



Count all the animal squares 



Count all the striped squares


Count all the red, yellow or green squares


This theme is about fun…fun for the children, fun for you who are making the squares, and very much about counting if you are so inclined!

I am loving the April intro, Anne....another month of fun.....YAY!!!!

Thank you for hosting this month, Christine.  :))

Let's bring on the colour and the squares!!!!!

Since I may be absent from the Forum for a good part of April, Christine Johnson has graciously offered to host this month's theme for me.  Thanks for stepping up, Christine, I really appreciate it.

Yes of the wonderful things about KAS....we always have each other's backs.  :))

.... or a sneaky way of hosting a theme when all the hard work's been done?

No way, Christine....I'm sure there is plenty of hard work ahead for you........JUST KIDDING.....lolol

I don't know about you but often when I see photos on this site, especially under Challenges I decide I can't post mine, you're just too clever. So before that happens I'll brave it and post some non-intimidating squares.
I had another go at intarsia - no surprise, it didn't work. Then I thought I'd have a go at double stitching and that was even worse - hats off to Bev; that is hard and mine was even lumpier than the intarsia effort. So I had to resort to my old method of just introducing a second yarn for the motif. It does appear a bit patchy in places but at least it is feasible for people like me who lack the patience to master a new skill.
So ten dull green squares that are going to need a bit of colour to cheer them up - maybe someone will come up with appropriately bright ones to surround them.

Holy smokes, Christine, these are fantastic!  You certainly got us off to a great start!

Christine, these are fabulous....please don't think your squares aren't good enough to post on the forum, they are wonderful. I have been checking out your photo gallery recently for PoM pics so I know how many beautiful squares you have created......thank you for hosting this month's theme, I'm sure is going to be such fun xo

Christine, what a fabulous collection of numbers.  I think they look great, sort of like a camo motif.  Perfect for the army green.

Christine these squares are amazing and not in the least bit dull.  There will be one very happy child with these squares in their blanket, you should be very proud of yourself.

Wow!! You are certainly leading us by example, Christine......I think your squares look SUPER!!

I am still in my 'planning'

Thanks Christine for the challenge! I´ve never knitted numbers like you did. Please, can you share the pattern/link?
