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!



Our Colour of the Month for PJ’s is PURPLE there are so many beautiful shades!

I love your take on waiting to be chosen Bev, I’ll look forward to seeing the waiting countries! A perfect combo in these squares, theme and colour of the month, the purple certainly allows the bright green to pop :))

Gorgeous!   Love this color combination, and that happy little Leprechaun really brightens the day.

Fabulous Irish squares, Bev. That green really stands out against the purple background.

I love your squares! Your leprechaun is so cute.

Look at that cheeky wee face, ha!     LOVE the colours together ❤️

Lovely bright and beautiful colours Bev. 

I have PURPLE yarn to give away to anyone who can collect from 6163 . Perfect for October.

Thank you fo your kind offer Ruth, UK is a bit far off to take you up on your offer, perhaps one of our Western Australian members might :))

Wow!! So bizarre. I was only thinking of you about a week ago and wondering if you still visited the forum, Karen.....because you used to have Bunbury as your address, which is about an hour from me....and then here you are, but it seems now in the capital city. I would have loved to say yes to the yarn, but I have A LOT  of purple yarn, as it is my second fave colour.  :))

I'd already made a start on this when green was the Colour of the Month for October. I realised I'd got a lot of greens amongst my leftovers so just added a couple of balls to make enough for a whole blanket. (I also took the photo before autumn set in!)

I got my green stash out way did the colour change?

Hi Dawn, it was early around 11th /12th August, please see my note to Patricia below. As you know, the themes and colours are for fun, KAS needs squares of all colours all of the time! We would be delighted to see squares from your green stash Dawn, happy crafting :))
