We appreciate that December is a busy month as we all get prepared for our Christmas and holiday celebrations. This months theme is designed to help you relax ad just wind down a little. Before the start of 2018 new and exciting themes.

Can you believe that 2017 is nearly over ?

Here at KAS we have had yet another super busy year, helping to keep thousands of children warm.

It has been a wonderful year with fabulous themes hosted by our moderators and members, with so many fantastic makes from all our crafters.Squares, toys, handwarmer and hats in their hundreds. There has been so much creativity in the colours, patterns and designs. Our crafters never cease to surprise us with the next idea they pull out of the hat. So that leads us to our monthly theme.

We must all have those little balls of scrap yarn, that been left over from our previous monthly theme or home projects ?

So, lets dig into the bottom of all those project bags and storage boxes and pull out all those odds and ends and get them used up. ( You never know what Santa might bring you !)

Whether it be a multi-coloured square, cuddly toy, jazzy handwarmer, stripy hat, lets use up all those odds and ends.

 Most importantly lets have some fun !!!

After my Animal Alphabet blanket I was kind of done with the squares. So to use up some of my scrap yarn, I first started with some squares, but couldn't get quite excited.

So I made what I really like to make; some stuffies :)

Personally, I think I am going to continue to use up my scrap yarn and make some more jellyfishes. Really like to make those, and they look totally huggable for a little one!

Kim you are a star! Toys are sooo needed! Hope you make a lot of these. They are adorable! xo

What cute toys Kim !

I thought you might like to see how a hospital in Dublin Ireland  is using crocheted octopus to help its premature babies.


Ah thank you! I have read about this initiative, very nice to see how it affects the babies!

Beautiful squares, Kim.  And your little toys are simply adorable!  xo

Sorry dear friends for not having responded to all items already made. So beautiful, all of them. I am a bit busy with other things for KAS, but from time to time I have a look......with a little bit of well-meant "envy". xo

WOWSERS GLORIA....This is a stunner!

I love random yarns and so have lots of random leftovers. Let's try mixing three different balls together and see what we get - totally random!


Wow! What a beautiful square, you are a very clever lady Patricia.

This is a beautiful square...love the mix of colours :))

Well, Patricia, what you got is fantabulous!  Well done :) xo

What a great idea, Patricia!  Random yarns are amongst my favorites, and I must try your suesdtion of combining small lengths.
