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.


Some ideas:

  • The obvious - flowers, plants, trees, lawns, leaves, soil, fruit & veg.
  • Garden visitors – birds, bees, butterflies, ladybirds, hedgehogs, caterpillars, – perhaps hold a teddy bears’ picnic.
  • Garden features - bird feeders, water features, sand pits, ponds, picnic tables, trellis, fences, paths, crazy paving, tubs, and window boxes.
  • Tools of the trade – spades, forks, wheelbarrows, watering can.

  • Be inspired by a selection of squares made this year by KAS members.

    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.

Sharon, I am full of admiration for your wonderful blanket - the different shades of green and the lovely leaf motif.  Thank you.  

What a beauty! I love the fresh shades of green and your lovely large leaves..... you are a yarn gardener for sure Sharon :))

Stunning!!!!  Dreamy colour choices + top notch design.   Very well done, Kx

Sharon, this has reminded me of the Swiss Cheese Plant I had in my office in the 1970s. I loved that plant and looked after it meticulously. Beautiful blanket and fabulous work.

Thank you all for your very kind words.   And Thanks to Chris for making me a yarn gardener!   I might be able to do that.

That’s so original Sharon....love it!

Woo Hoo, Sharon!! LOVE your ode to the garden.  :))

Fabulous work, Sharon. Love all the different shades of green against the light background.

My latest additions to this month's virtual garden,with some colourful plain jane diagonals. 

Inspired by nasturtium  - I always want to have t hese in my garden, they are so cheerful, easy to grow  and are still flowering now in October.

So many flowers to choose from in shades oF  lilac, purple and blues.

Gorgeous colours, Susan. Nasturtiums always make me think of my Granny's garden so a very precious flower to me.

Beautiful colors!  Love the matching flowers, too.

Goodness you have been busy we love PJ’s and they’re such beautiful colours.
