To Our October 2021 Theme
~ WAITING TO BE CHOSEN ~
Have you, like me, had yarn in your stash for a very long time, just waiting to be chosen, but you have passed over it in favour of other, newer yarn? Or, perhaps you have bought some yarn from a charity shop, never used by its previous owner, and it was just sitting there waiting…… then it was chosen by you!
Well, October could be the month when this yarn has its chance to shine, to fulfill its destiny and be chosen to help warm a child in SA, or perhaps even make a toy!
Appliqués or small needlepoint pictures may be at the bottom of a drawer or your work basket too, so please dig them out, for they too have been waiting to be chosen to enhance a square or a blanket that a child will treasure!
Do you have a pattern that has been on your ’to do’ list for a while? Well this could be the month you try it!
This month isn’t really an inspirational theme, but I hope it will encourage us all to look at what we have, and do what we can for the children. I hope we can also encourage and inspire each other!
Seeing photos of the children at distributions always motivates me to do as much as I can to help them….. and I know that I’m not on my own, we all wish we could do more!
The children in SA will welcome everything you make in any pattern or colour: blankets, squares, hats, hand warmers and toys!
So happy crafting everyone!
You were well prepared Patricia! I asked for a change in CoM as we had had a green, but not purple, the nearest was your lavender CoM. Your shades of green blanket is beautiful, it looks so fresh and spring-like. So many hues, thank you :))
Patricia, I love very much you used several shades of green in your blanket. It reminds me of little lovely frogs . As Chris wrote it looks so fresh.
Love this idea Patricia. Great to see so many greens together + your chosen stitch is sublime ✔️
This is stunning, Patricia. It isn't a color we see a lot of in the blankets, and I wonder why, especially since yours looks delicious! The self-striping yarn adds just the right touch.
Your greens look LOVELY in this blanket, Patricia!! LOVE the texture, too. :))
I especially like the one that is second from the right, top row. That is really pretty. I had one ball that from memory was very similar, but I haven't been able to find one the same, since....and I don't have the ball band, so no idea where it came from.
Lovely blanket…looks soft and cuddly.
Wonderful, Patricia, I love all the different greens together.
Wow Karla, a giant penguin in an amazing blanket, you are a very talented lady!
I hadn’t thought about charts, but of course they can be included, the more ideas the better! Glad to hear you have purple yarn in your stash :)) Thank you Karla.
Gosh these chart picture style crochet blankets are incredible. An adorable, very neat, unique blanket Karla ❤️
so cute, Karla. This little guy looks so dashing, and will be a great friend to some lucky child. Your borders are great, too.
How CUTE, Karla!! He is one amazing penguin, who will certainly delight one lucky little one. :))
I LOVE how you have included colours of the penguin, in his surrounds.
