Happy August, everyone!

This is the one month in the year when I can take some time to breathe and relax - and do LOADS of knitting and crocheting!

It also means I am able to host a theme and spend a bit more time on the forum.

The KAS pattern book has a good selection of knitted and crocheted squares with different patterns and textures, for a starter. The wider Internet is alive with a rich variety of choices, if, like me you have a little more time this month and want to try some thing new.

So this is the month to rake through your stash and find all those weird bits and bobs of eyelash, fuzzy and pom-pom yarns that you never know what to do with!

Of course, this will then create space to buy some lovely new yarns...

Hopefully, that's whetted your appetite and got your creative juices flowing!

Let's see how many people are brave enough to try out at least ONE new stitch or technique this month.

As you upload your photos onto the main site, I will add them to our photo album for the month, which you can view here:


Happy creating!

LOVING the 'love', Amy....gorgeous colours....beautiful message.  :))

The other squares are pretty, too.....I noticed when I stopped looking at the pink....lol.

The entrelac one is very effective - and who could not love the flower!!

Four textured squares made by Anne, 3 are made with eyelash yarn and 1 with bobbly cotton yarn......then a gorgeous blanket made by Maureen, the colours are beautiful in real life much better than they look in my photo!!   :)))

Exciting, vibrant squares and a wonderful blanket - thank you so much, Anne and Maureen!

LOVE those squares from Anne....soooooo pretty.  :))

The colours in Maureen's blanket are simply WOW!!!!!!!

Whilst away on holiday, last week, I allowed myself to concentrate mainly on non-KAS projects. I completed a knitted, small jacket and matching hat for my 'still-half-baked' grandchild and the front of a crocheted sweater for myself, as well as crocheting several motifs for a blanket experiment I'm trying (which may well end up for KAS!)

However, on our many car journeys - both long and short - I was knitting these hand warmers and squares. Towards the end of the week, it was very sunny in the car and I noticed how much fine dust was on the dashboard of the car. When I wiped it, it was PINK! The very fibres from the yarn had obviously got into the air - oops!

The fluffy, bobbly yarn below is VERY challenging to knit with. I've used it before (see photos in intro) but the stash never seems to get any smaller! Anyway, it certainly makes for an interesting texture, though it needs to be combined with a normal DK yarn to make a more solid square.

An amazing assortment of items Heather.  Love the fluffy cuffs on your hand warmers and the purple fluffy yarn in your square, my favourite colour.  BUT........... I'm most impressed with your two squares  made with the thick/thin bobbly/fluffy yarn as I know just how difficult it is to use.  They look wonderful, well done.  :)))

Even more fascinating than these textual yarns are HOW you are able to actually create something with them. You are amazing Heather. 

You have amazing fingers, Heather.  :))

LOVE, love, love, your handwarmers with those pretty cuffs....have to say the variegated ones are SUPER-yum!!!!

The last yarn looks a nightmare to create something with, but you have done well !!

The top two squares are knitted - variations on a diagonal rib pattern - and the bottom one is a new crochet pattern I haven't tried before. 

Pretty colour, pretty patterns...what more could one want?????.......more of them?.....lol.

Gorgeous colour yarn and great patterns = beautiful squares Heather.  :))
