Thank you Glo for your comprehensive sweep of news and titbits from our members and the KAS barn.  My head is just whirling with all this colour and information.

Mili, thank you.  It's amazing how quickly news travels.  I just posted this this morning and already you have it at your desk ... hahaha  Too bad we can't get our squares to S.A. as quickly, eh ... xo

Congratulations on another amazing, comprehensive oversight of life inside giving what we can for KAS.   I thoroughly enjoy a really good read through your well put together accounts G X

Thanks, Karen ... xo

Thank you Glo for another super Snips! As to the question “what’s your knitting style”...... well, I only crochet these days, but having looked at the video, I am definitely a thrower :)) 

Entertainment!   Loved this issue of Snippets, Gloria.    I have no words to describe Edy Syquer's Dolls with Hats!   They are soooo cute, so clever, so thoughtful.

Original knitting style was as a thrower (learned on a DVD).  Switched to Continental soon after (learned on YouTube) -- because I never really learned to control the yarn with my right hand, even though I am right-handed.   It was all the previous years of crochet, controlling the yarn left-handed.

Crochet style is overhand, also called knife-hold.

Oh my goodness, thank you Sharon and Chris for mentioning crochet!  I have a bad habit of forgetting the crochet crowd.  And I'm a crocheter!  Go figure :)

I used to hold my crochet hook 'like a pencil', if that's the right way to say it.  Then I switched to the 'knife-hold' and have had no problem with cramping.

I think the pencil hold meant I was moving my wrist further or more often ... or something.  Not sure what it was, but for a while I couldn't crochet.  So I switched and since then have had no trouble.  That's the way I do TC, too - knife-hold. 

It's all fun and games until someone gets hand cramps ... LOL ... xo

Yes, I crochet knife-hold (although I do hold my knife like a pen - very bad form I know!)

Well, I must confess that I have been told more than once that what I do isn’t really crocheting! I hold my hook like a knife, but I don’t use my left hand to hold the yarn, it’s in my right as if I were knitting, and I guess I must look very clumsy, because my knitting ‘technique’ used to look clumsy too! The thing is, I’m comfortable crocheting this way, I have tried doing it correctly, but my fingers then look like a confused octopus :))

Chris, I'm amazed!  One of our RJSKs does the very same thing!  When I first saw her working away, I thought she was knitting.  Then I realized she had only on needle ... no ... hook!  She looked at me and laughed.  She said, I know it looks odd, but it gets the job done.  I agree.  Doesn't matter how you hold your tools so long as you get the job done.  And you, dear Chris, get the job done beautifully every time :) ... xo

Oh my goodness... You girls are making me LOL... Lol.   It all sounds so funny and I can't even do it, full stop, nowt, squat!    None-the-wonder if it's so technical, ha ha.

WOW!   Whatever you are doing, Chris, it sure is working!   You make amazing things in very short time.   Keep on with your own technique.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
