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!

They also do the same colours in dk Lesley :)

Joan, these are so lovely!  I agree ... the colors in this yarn are gorgeous :)) xo

Such pretty colors, and perfect stitching.   Lovely.

Ooh Joan - these are scrummy! I love variegated yarns! 

LOVE your squares, Joan...your variegated yarns are very, very, pretty.  :))

Perfection!! Love the colors. Thanks, Joan.

A few simple 'textures' - now to accept Heather's challenge and find some stitches I haven't tried before!

Great textures, Lesley :)  And fabulous colors, too. xo

Beautiful squares in super colours Lesley :). What is that pattern? Looks like it could also be used for handwarmers.

Thanks, Joan - the one on the left is a diagonal rib (k2, p2, 'shifting' across on each row, rather than the other diagonal rib, which shifts on every other row - let me know if that doesn't make sense and I'll try to write it out fully!)  The others are just k2, p2 for two rows, then p2, k2 for two rows - quick and easy!

Love these squares, Lesley.   Great colors, wonderful texture, perfect stitches.

A really beautiful selection, Lesley - many thanks! I look forward to more...
