Hello all - What do you think about linking together while we are all separated by covid-19?  

How about a KAS KAL?

What is a KAS KAL?  You ask....... Well........  KAL stands for Knit Along.  It is a time when we are all working in a similar piece of knitting and can ask each other for help, share photos of how we are doing, encourage each other........ and learn how to do some of the KAS patterns as well as using up some of our stash.

I have designed a blanket that we can all work on, one square at a time.  It will be a fun way to learn about Plain Janes, Diagonal Squares, Stripes, Framed Squares and Mitre Squares......all at our own pace, and all explained really simply, with lots of opportunity for anyone to ask for help or clarification as well.

I propose that we start this on May Day and we end it..... when we finish!  

This is suitable for all of us.  That means that some of us, who are

experienced or confident knitters may be able to get through it. 

relatively quickly.  Others who are working from home, juggling

work and kids, or just not very experienced or not very confident

about knitting may want to take a little longer to work through it.    

I hope some of you will feel able to join in - keep your eyes peeled for further information before we start!

So am I.........

Yes please!

Ready for the next pattern, Rebecca!

Sorry folks - my dog has had to be at the vet for a biopsy and then my Uncle had to go to hospital and has now passed away so it has all been a bit of a mess here.

However, the next square is about to be posted!!

Hi Rebecca. Sounds like you have had  tough time. Thinking of you just now x

Thank you Jillian.  This appears to be a year that keeps on giving!!

You’ve had a stressful year so far, Rebecca. Sending kind thoughts your way.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope that your year will turn itself around and give you a less stressful time.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your Uncle.  

Dear Rebecca, I am so very sorry to read that you have lost an Uncle.  How very sad.

Hopefully your dog is doing okay.  I have been completely out of touch for the last couple of weeks, so am now trying to catch up on all the news here ... xo

Square Seven

It is stripes again!

Do you remember making the Diagonal Square, where you started with one stitch, increased it it was 8 inches along the diagonal edge, then decreased until you were back at one stitch?

Do you remember working on the striped version of the Plain Jane, where there was scope for you to make the stripes as thick or thin, as spread out or as close together as you wished?

Guess what?  We are going to cross the two to get a Striped Diagonal Square!

In fact we are going to get 4 striped diagonal squares!

I can't wait to see your photos!

I’ve just been looking back at everyone’s KAL squares. Fabulous. The blankets are going to be gorgeous.
