 Thank you so much Diane :)

I was happy to see that the yarn togehter with the C2C pattern gives such a great effect. The yarn has wool in it, extra warmth for the Winter. xo

I love the Mariners yarn Diane and can't resist buying different colours although I still have loads to use. Happy New Year to you & your family:))

Diane I had to smile when I read your message with your blanket. We were sitting in our holiday home in Norfolk and it had been raining non stop for 12hours. Managed to knit three squares though:)

Hi Diane.

Please check out the latest photos in the 'Blanket Room' discussion.....I think I see a blanket of yours.   :))

Hi Diane,  I checked your name in the original data and that is what is recorded. [I'm in Canada and the data is sent to me from South Africa]

However having said that, new volunteers have been known to not record content correctly and it was a new volunteer compiling the data.  I'm assuming you included a packing slip so the mix-up was somewhere after that !  At least we know your parcel arrived :-)

Sorry for the mix-up.  As a volunteer charity Knit-a-Square will always have a few hiccups. Thank you for your understanding.  Linda

Thanks Diane, I enjoyed knitting this one so much and it grew very quick that I am temped to do another one in a different sequence:)

Hi Diane, it's so lovely for me to hear you enjoy making the Cozy Jumpers - I'm biased of course but I do feel they are like a big warm snuggly hug for the children! I love the bears to, whoever I have shown them to has instinctively hugged them tight and made all the right noises! Can't wait to post the first batch off! Happy knitting xx

Thanks Diane, Credit goes to Kathy Platts for the cuffs who taught me how to pick up the stitches at the side to do them:)

It is good that the patterns can be altered in different ways:)

Yeah Diane - we have the same yarn!! (your comment on my Hand Warmers pic).  Marian (creator of many knitted toys) was using this to make a jacket for her niece last summer When I saw it I just had to have some (you know how it is!!) such happy bright colours.  I made 2 Grace Vests with it on the front panel.  It's lovely for the handwarmers as it is bright and colourful, and not doing stripes means less ends to darn in.  I foresee a few more pairs will be made in it!

Thanks Diane, The blue was kindly given to me by one of my neighbours. Pity it didn't have a label as i would have liked to have known the shade.

Hi Diane

Thank you for your kind comments under my Heart Square photos. You asked how a different yarn can be knitted into the centre of a square. Well, I'm sure it's possible if you are good at intarsia which I'm not so I just join in another strand of yarn and use the two threads for the motif only. You do need an extra short length to complete a heart but that's only a few rows and isn't hard. I've done quite a few now with varying results, my least successful attempt being a try at just bordering the heart which turned out very 'spikey'. Squares are a great way of trying new things and not having to worry too much if they aren't perfect- they'll still be used.

Thank you Diane, I like your little hat that's with your last Go-over, very cute.......Nicole

Thanks Diane, Happy New Year:)

Totally agree on how quick they are to knit. I have now started another one:)

Hi Diane,

I added thirty stitches for the sleeves on this one. Kathy P's amended pattern is 40 stitches which I haven't had the courage to attempt yet:)
