Which one are you, Mary?

I believe I'm somewhere in between weighing and buying new yarn.  I don't weigh my yarn for squares, but I certainly do when I'm working on a larger project.  For a shawl, for instance, I need to weigh to be sure I have enough to cast off with. However, for squares I just count on the fact that December will roll around and I can use up my bits and pieces in the end-of-year theme :))  Thanks, Patricia, for giving us that choice ... xo

While researching for another project, I noticed that some of my friends had made squares using a pattern like this.  I liked the idea and wanted to give it a go.  I've used the tail end of a ball here and I think it turned out quite nice.  Thanks so very much for inspiring me with your work :)

And, of course, this pattern fits with any theme but is a great one for using odments.  Very shortly before she left us, my dear friend encouraged me to make better use of this pattern ... she even walked me through a two-colour version which I love to make.  I don’t believe I'll ever be able to work this pattern without smiling at happy memories of Anne.

 

The change of colour adds yet another dimension to the two dimensional square, Gloria! Anne would love to think she was still making you smile.

SUPER neat squares, Glo!!

My personal fave of Anne's squares was the variation of this pattern in the one on the left below....

AUGUST 2013 CHALLENGE - Purple and rust

Oh Bev, thank you for this pic.  That is a beauty, eh.  That is the way Anne taught me to do the 2 colour ones.  I remember the day (doesn’t seem that long ago) that she suggested I try.

I told her, No thanks!  Too many ends to weave in."

She just laughed and said, "Grab your hook, girl ..."

So I did and with her guidance I discovered how easy it was to create beauties like that with only 3 ends and the tail :)) ... xo

Glo and Bev, have you seen this? http://www.forum.knit-a-square.com/photo/august-2012-challenge-zebr...

Anne asked me too how to make the stripes and  whether it was easy to make a striped square in this pattern and I said oh yes Anne VERY easy and gave her instructions too and Glo:  no ends to weave in for every row! xo

One row black,
One row white,
One square closer,
To a warm night.

2012 was just before I started on my KAS journey so I've not seen this before, Anneke. Fabulous, as always.

Thank you so much Patricia xo. This photo gave me the inspiration to make the square :)

I have terracotta towels and a rug and door curtain - it's one of my favourite colours for soft furnishings!

It's one of my favourite colours too! :)

Oh Anneke, it seems I may have missed this one, all those years ago.

That is a BEAUTIFUL interpretive square....and your poem is just perfect and so 'on point'. I LOVE it.  xo
