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!
Our Colour of the Month for PJ’s is PURPLE there are so many beautiful shades!
You must have a BEAUTIFUL garden, Karla. I LOVE the flowers you have shared. :))
I've been MIA for a little while from KAS, but I'm excited to be back and to be able to return to my passionate of knitting and crocheting and to continue contributing to the beautiful KAS project. I'm currently working on my very first toy. I'm excited to see what Nov has in store :)
Another wonderful month of crafting, thank you for hosting, Chris.
How appropriate! They look to be lovely warm squares, thank you Patricia :))
Very appropriate! Love it. Happy Halloween every one :)
Your yarn is GORGEOUS, Patricia!!! Such striking colourways. :))
Ooo ver unusual wool Patricia X ✔️
A 40x40 cm. Square from my “Cute Graphs” File. I’ve used lilac and lavender as the background and border and a white sparkly yarn which I found in a charity shop for the llama’s body. I had to add two white lace flowers on the top border to disguise the one lilac block sitting in the border- I didn’t notice my mistake until I was sewing all the ends away!
