THEME FOR JUNE STITCHTASTIC STITCHES, STRIPES & ZIGZAGS !
lead by Pam Antink
As I do not knit very well, I'm going to have to cheat and fudge my way through the June Theme! For this purpose I've been trawling through all the pics on the Photo tab right back to the beginning. It was a joy to view some of the photos! More from early contributors will be posted as the Theme progresses - hopefully to provide additional inspiration.
Do hope everyone enjoys our progress through the years and the reminders of the wonderful supporters who have contributed and still do!
Anyhow, please get ready for a daily
'Blast from the Past'
Anneke (The Netherlands) has helped me by knitting some lovely versions of Stitchtastic Stitches, Stripes and Zigzags to get the theme off the ground!

Andrea Palmatier - one of the few brave enough to tackle zigzags
Anne Powell - love this very strong example of a striped square - so effective!
Gloria Grandy - May's inspiring PJ Theme leader, has been largely instrumental in making the Tunisian Stitch very popular since she joined in April 2013!

Been so so busy this month - very little time for the forum - any precious few spare minutes have been spent with the yarn. Hugs to you all! Xxxxx
PS Any UK folks out there - don't forget to check out the KAS UK "Big Day Out" on July 18th. Details can be found in the discussion within the UK group page.
My last 2 squares for the June theme. These are based on Anneke's pattern in the members patterns forum. http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/member-s-patterns-squar...
I needed to make a slight adjustment as I used thinner yarn and smaller needles than in the original pattern. I also decided to try doing a moss stitch border on the blue one just for a variation. Lovely, easy pattern to knit and looks great finished.
