This month we embrace all the things that come are under the African sky.

Children...

Land...

Monuments...

People...

...and the Animals.

Now is the time to be creative with flags, animals, beadwork designs, instruments, cloth, housing styles and so much more from the continent of Africa.

Let us celebrate together, all that Africa has to show the world, and wrap the children in a warm cozy blanket.

These 15 squares are made with the leftovers from my recent blanket.   I have experimented with stripes to use up the appropriate amounts of the small balls in each colour.   I'm feeling pretty chuffed with myself to have completed this task straight after making the blanket, instead of my leftovers being left to their fate at the end of the year.

I´m sure all you striped squares will be very nice in different blankets. 

I'm usually keen to move on to a different colour palette once I've finished a blanket, Karen, but using up your leftovers is always satisfying. You've made some super stripe combinations this month.

Isn't it fun so see how far all those small balls will going into making warm squares.

Clearing out the stash early means getting more yarn.  Yea!

Tee-hee, you'd think so, wouldn't you -  however, it just means I have a few less small balls in my leftovers stash for my end of the year clear-out knitting  ✔️♥️

LOVE how you have arranged these squares, Karen.....it just makes me smile and think how they would look somehow arranged in this fashion in a blanket.......i.e. as some kind of steps.

They are perfect…love the way the colours repeat themselves. 

Colour of the Month squares.

Beautiful buttery yellow!  

I agree - but - I get to start a totally new project tonight with a fantastically clear conscience,  eeeee!!    I may use turquoise....

Wow, these are so sunny and warm.  A great addition to this month's theme.

Your grass is sooooo green!

Wow!! I LOVE 'your' pattern in this rich, creamy yellow, Patricia!!

I tried to find the pretty green that you used recently in some of your squares, online. I bought 1.8kgs of yarn, but the green, although different to what I could find in shops, is not as pretty. Think I will just admire your yellow, today and not go looking for the same.....hahaha.

The yellow was a supermarket own brand so I can't help you there, Bev. The green is Cygnet Pato Everyday DK in Apple (although in my opinion it's more of an emerald green than an apple!)
