FEBRUARY THEME

FRUIT and FLOWERS

Over the years this has been a regular theme: a sign of freshness, beauty and hope, bringing colour and warmth to our KAS kids.

I confess to being a hopeless

 knitter. Crochet is more in my line. Fortunately here at Knit-a-Square we are all welcomed with open arms

Combining both techniques can also be fun, sewing appliqué crochet onto a knit base for example, or appliqués 

onto a crochet square.

Please don’t worry if a little veggie sneaks in. It will be welcome among the fruit and flowers.

Finally we would have no fruit, flowers or veggies without the help of the sun, rain and friendly insects.

Don't forget that February's colour is ORANGE

Thanks Gloria, loved using the self striping yarn in the multidirectional pattern, really enjoyed making it.

Contente de savoir que vous avez repris vos chères aiguilles Diane et vos nouvelles réalisations sont lumineuses. J'espère que votre poignet est complètement guéri ?

Merci bien Mireille, Le poignet n'est pas guéri,mas chaque jour c'est meilleur

WowZa!  Diane you have been very busy.   Your squares are delicious, and the blanket is stunning.   Take care to not overdo your newly healed injury, but keep these beauties coming, please.

Thanks Sharon, the blanket and squares have taken me well over 2 months to make, trying not to push myself to much. Today was a day off from knitting.

A day off is a good idea!   

Back in 2008, my husband had both hip replacements.   One of the home health nurses said that they refer to "rest" as Vitamin R.  They recommended a healthy dose of Vitamin R to him.   Since then, I regularly refer to Vitamin R, especially during Covid when people thought they could just push through.  So, once again, I am recommending Vitamin R, as needed. 

But, actually, it sounds like you don't need my advice.   You are already doing the proper things.   Good for you!

Once more, THANK YOU ALL for your gorgeous squares and photos. I have enjoyed hosting this theme very much.

Just slipping in under the radar...haha. Did have the (double) square knitted in Feb, just ran out of time yesterday to sew everything on. This orange is a little more muted....kinda like an apricot shade.

February 2023 Theme - Fruit and Flowers

Apple + tree = apple tree. :))

Wow, Bev, this double square is aa treasure!  Very bright to add zing to a blanket, and your perfect duplicate stitching (along with your special appliques) is always a treat ... xo

What a clever idea, Bev.   A treat for the eyes, and a teaching set all in one.   You should give yourself an extra treat, too!

Oh I do like this double square, it is so perfectly stitched, a great idea Bev! :)

Brilliant idea, Bev, and another lovely shade of orange.
