DECEMBER THEME - Stash Busters, Easy Peazies, Plain Janes and Other FavoriteS!

Welcome to December! We've made it to the last month of the year and are all getting busy with various holidays and time spent with friends and loved ones. Time to clean out our stash baskets and use up those bits and bobs in colorful squares, so we can all go out and get new yarns for the coming year of knitting and crocheting to help keep the children warm! Time to relax with an easy plain Jane and a cup of warm tea or cocoa. Time to reflect on the beauty of the blankets we've helped create, and ponder on new ideas for the coming year. Bless all the wonderful world-wide KASers who work so diligently to warm the children!

Happy New Year 

Baby New Year

I am full of admiration for the lovely squares posted this month,  Here are my "stashbuster" contributions - a traditional granny square in Christmas colours, surrounded by a sparkly midnight blue sky - though the sparkles do not show up too well.  

The variegated wool for the diagonal  I bought because, in the  artificial shop light  and even when I started knitting it, I was convinced  it was in autumn tones, which would fit so well with the next January theme.  How wrong I was - in good  daylight it came out as pink and purple! 

Susan, thanks for hosting the December theme. 

It is always a busy time for everyone but we have some wonderful squares to add to blankets to keep the children warm when the weather turns cold.

Susan, thank you for hosting this month's theme.  I have just looked through the photo album (again!) and what a gorgeous collection of squares we have ... Christmassy and otherwise ... to add to the children's blankets!  Well done everyone :) xo

I'm just making it in under the wire !   

Here is my Happy New Year square.  Wishing everyone a wonderful year filled with yarn and colourful squares.

Front and back of the square.  I like the fluffy quality of the back.

Diana, this is a splendid contribution ... beautifully made! xo

These are beautiful, Diana and so evenly knitted. Love the colours too.

One more diagonal The first one of the new year and the last of my X-mas holiday. FUN!

Here's my last owl square that I made for the mini challenge. Unfortunately the colours are not at true to the real colours which are beige, white and brown with silver and gold thread running through the owl.

Thank you for hosting the December theme Susan.

Happy New Year everyone.

A few squares and hand warmers made from odds and ends.
