Hi K-A-S Friends.

Many of us have enjoyed a good chuckle or interesting moment in the Share a Yarn and Furry Friends discussions, haven't we?
Being the continually evolving community that we are; as of this moment, these two discussions shall become one.
Welcome to FUNNY and FANTASTIC!
Please feel free to share a pic, a funny story or maybe a link to a video about...... anything.
 We'd love to know what puts a 'smile on your dial' and a 'song in your heart'.

Honestly girls is there ANY way to rescue incredibly gappy Granny Squares?   I've tried weaving other yarns through the gaps, just doesn't work. I found 6 in the bottom of a bag in my closet and wonder if I should just chuck them out. I'm not sure I can rip them and restart.  I hate to toss them but I'm not sending them looking like hole filled undies...I mean they won't keep any child warm. Any ideas? I mean they're done in worsted yarn but they're as gappy as the gold square upper right in this photo. Very discouraging.  Should I just unravel and use the yarn in a different square?

Maybe sew them onto a “plain jane” to add a little interest? Such pretty colours and it’s a shame to unravel them.

A good idea Sandy, it would add interest and of course a little more warmth :))

GREAT idea, Sandy!!

I agree, that's a super idea. I frogged a couple and am using one resulting yarn ball to make a hat.  I like the idea of double layering, keeping the design but backing it with something more solid. Thank you ladies!

And in the category of "I wish I could unsee this...."     Somebody said it's like sleeping in a blanket with 1 leg out. Um right....

And here's another one, LOL.

Oh my goodness!! I had to do a double-take! For a minute there I thought it was my youngest son. Tall, slim build, shoulder length brown hair and even very similar facial features....oh the relief when I realized it wasn't .....LOLOL  I will have to send them to him and ask him where he has been modelling....hahaha.

Wonderful articles, Joan.  Great pictures of who, where and why people knit.  Thank you so much for sharing this ... xo

Thank you Joan for sharing  this, very appropriate today.

During WW2, my grandfather had shrapnel injuries to his back and buttocks, so sitting, understandably, was a problem. Apparently he didn't like idle hands, so whilest lying on his side, he learned how to knit, and he made a beige wool scarf in stocking stitch; there were a number of mistakes....... but he once told me that those were made on his bad days. I thought he meant when he was in pain, but no, it was when he was thinking about the horror that he had left behind and his pals that that wouldn't be returning home. The scarf was a reminder to him of how fortunate he was, and he wore it every winter for the rest of his life.

My grandmother knitted socks and balaclava hats for the soldiers in the Crimean and First World Wars.
