I am delighted to host another KAS monthly and there is something for everyone in this month's topic, Whatever your level of skill, let your imagination run riot with your choice of yarn, stitch, colour, pattern, texture, motif, and design to create squares, beanie hats, hand warmers and toys,
Here are just a few ideas to get your needles clicking, though members from the southern hemisphere will have their own interpretations of their gardens. Be inspired by the colours of nature. Remember that Plain Janes are the foundation of KAS blankets and we would love to reflect a riot of colour in the garden with both self-coloured squares and picture squares.
Help to create a garden of delights to bring colour, cheerfulness and warmth into the children's lives.
I look forward to seeing your contributions on the Forum.
I love the effect of your yarn and stitch, Estelle. Thank you.
I could imagine being a Susan or a Chris but if I were an Estelle I feel I'd be a completely different person. In fact I almost was a Marion but my Mum changed her mind at the last minute. (To be a Karen I think I'd have to be a few years younger!)
This is beautiful Patricia, what a lovely yarn :))
A very pretty square and colour!Is it knitted?
No, Rachel, it's crochet. I think it's pretty too and I shall definitely be using it again.
Thank you for your reply!Yes really pretty and it looks warm!
Your yarn colourways are so pretty, Patricia!! LOVE the stitch, too. :))
I love this beautiful shaded blue square, Patricia, and the pattern. It’s now on my to-do list!
What a fabulous theme you are hosting, Susan! I can't grow flowers, but I love to look at them and smell them. I am loving all the gorgeous work involved in creating this month's contributions - squares, blankets, and even toys. Well done, everyone!
With everything in disarray in our world, I've made fewer trips to the yarn shops. Not to worry, though, as I have plenty of little leftovers - and even more 'not so little' leftovers. Since my poor hubby was laid up for a while, he offered to help me get things sorted. I showed him how to make the magic knot and he took all ... yes, ALL ... my bits and bobs and made huge balls with them. I divided my yarns into like weights and he went to work matching colors and winding.
I love it because since he rolled them, I have no idea what color is coming next so it's a surprise for me each time I make a square. While I haven't been able to get online, my fingers have been busy ...
These bring to mind a field of wildflowers - whatever comes up has its own beauty :)
Oh Gloria what a superb entry! I just love the poignant backstory and applaud your contribution, the colours are indeed GLORIA-OUS!!!!
I can't better Karen's comment. Gloria-ous indeed!
