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:

Oh you poor thing!!! Sewing in ends is my 'pet hate'.....however, judging by the little 'tease' you have provided us with so far, it is going to be one AMAZING blanket. xo
I always feel awkward when using circular needles as I knit with one needle tucked under my arm. It is a totally impossible the§choice for circulars! Mind you - that does not stop me from automatically trying to do it *rolls eyes*.
This blanket is going to be just gorgeous!
WOW! Louise, this is a stunner! What a gorgeous blanket this is going to be. I love the colors you've chosen and your fairisle patterns are incredible. A little one is going to be over the moon when wrapped in this beauty! I don't envy you tucking in all the ends, but the end result is going to be so worth it. A little one is going to be over the moon when wrapped in this beauty! xo
What a fantastic start! A circular needle does take a bit of time to get used to, I know, but this is going to be well worth the effort. It will fit nicely into September's stripey theme...
How lovely - thanks Diana!
Although there are a few hours of August left "across the pond", it's now over in the UK. Thank you all so much for your valued and varied contributions to this discussion, which have really stimulated our creative juices.
It's been lovely to have the time to join in with everyone on the forum; sadly, work is now so manic that August is about the only month now that I have the time. The rat race now beckons me back, so, have a great autumn (spring)!
I love the look this stitch produces. And the green you picked really makes it pop.
