To Our October 2021 Theme



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!

It looks very interesting! I´ve never seen it before.

Gosh this looks a tricky design to make.   Kudos Patricia,  love the colours too ❤️

I suppose all my Clear the Decks blankets are made up of yarn waiting to be chosen, or at least waiting to be used up. This one is number 5.

Oh Patricia, what a beauty! Your C to C blankets are always wonderful, the colour mixes in this are a treat for the eyes :)) 

Totally agree with Chris!! This blanket is SO pretty, Patricia.  :))

An Immaculate, and very professional looking, blanket ♥️

I totally agree with Chris and Bev. Your blanket is gorgeous!

I’ve loved all your Clear the Decks blankets, Patricia. Love the colours you’ve used.

Oh, Chris!   I had such big plans for this month, but, alas! life has other plans.   I have managed a few squares of yarns that were waiting to be chosen, in the CoM, and one big purple flower, both the pattern and the yarns were in the waiting to be chosen category.

But, gladly, others have been showing their wonderful creations, and they are beautiful!   It is always an inspiration to read through the month and see what people have been making, all the wonderful colors and patterns, textures and trends.

Big THANK YOU for hosting this fun month, even with the apology for being absent for most of it.

Woo Hoo!! A SUPER selection, Sharon!! Your flower is AMAZING!!

As a fan of purple, I’m loving all the different shades you have used! The flower is beautiful, it will look wonderful in a blanket. Thank you.

You are right, sometimes ’life’ takes over, and what we would like to be doing has to be shelved for a while….. KAS is always there for when you do have  time :)) 

I've missed seeing your work this month, Sharon, but these were worth waiting for. Beautiful purples.
