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
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!
Well Gloria you have done a cracking job! I'm thoroughly enjoying being told what to knit and am really looking forward to seeing all the colourways folk have come up with.
I have been having problems with my greens as well........
These are lovely squares. Well done. I am glad you have enjoyed working through them all. I shall be making a post this weekend about sewing them up, if you are able to get hold of us, I know your internet access has been patchy.
Thanks, Rebecca. I'm here for a few more days so I'll watch for it ... xo
I finished my squares, and thought I'd go ahead and just join them together in the best arrangement that I could find. So here it is.
I can't wait to see all the squares that have been made with this set of directions. I'm already planning another one, hopefully with help from my sister-in-law when she is around.
Thank You so much, Rebecca for setting this up, doing all the work of choosing the patterns, and encouraging us along the way.
Well done Sharon - your colour choices are great. I think the different textures of the stitches creates a lot of interest and variety. Marvellous blanket.
This so great. I love how the blue and brown accent each other.
Oh Sharon - that looks so lovely. I have to admit that I am excited to see how everyones squares turned out.
I had a planned layout, but can't get it to upload, the wifi here has been a nightmare! I am glad that you managed to get a payout of your own sorted.
Here is my completed blanket.
I have to say it took me a whole afternoon to decide on the best arrangement of squares, I think it is OK.
Thank you for suggesting and hosting the theme, it has been fun. I tried some different techniques that I've not done before, so that was fun too.
I can't wait to see other members blankets.
Wow this is a triumph too. I love the bold use of colours. Again the variety of stitches pop in this blanket too. Bravo!
Such a wonderful happy blanket - well done!!
These blankets are gorgeous. Ready to make mine up but not sure how to make the outside edges ‘pretty’. Help please.
