Last month's Squillion Squares

10 more Squillion Squares

It's been a month since my last confession... no, I mean my last Knit a Squillion square posting! I haven't been as busy a bee as I was in August, but I've met my goal and passed it!

 

This month, I've knit 10 new squares, five in organic cotton, three in sock yarn held double or triple, and one in Lang Eve yarn.

Designer of September 2011 - Kristen Hanley Cardozo

My first "contact" with this month's designer was Pauline, a brilliant bonnet pattern for adult women. I still haven't knit one, but like the pattern very much nonetheless. Another current favourite of mine from this designer is the Entrechat - don't you just adore it?

Knitted bath mats rock!

Recycled bath mats

Let's say your sister gives your mum some extra-wide sheets to somehow reuse. And you happen to be around before your mum starts anything with the sheets. I don't know about you, but that sounds like bath mat making time for me! Especially as I had hoped to make one on my holiday, anyhow, and therefore had my 15 mm circular with me.

This summer's charity scarves

Stripey Scarf

I am still working on scarves for charity, using up my supply of single balls of wool (blends) and half balls left from other projects. I haven't made much progress this summer, but here are three. That's better than none, no?

 

The first one is made with local German sheep's wool (orange), Finnish wool (grey) and industrial made green vintage German yarn called Tiffany, which I used in a scarf I made in May, too.

The Neglected Aran Beret

Sometimes knits just don't get blogged, you know what I mean? I finish a FO, take pictures, crop them to the correct size... and never blog about the FO.

 

I don't mean to do it, but I do. So that means you get to see FOs finished several months ago, too. My apologies. But perhaps as these knits are new to you, you won't mind too much? Especially in this case, because the FO is just so gorgeous!

The first six squares for Africa

First squares

Although I haven't been blogging much, I've been a busy bee - I signed up to a gym to try it out for this month, so I have been going there pretty much daily. I also have finished my first six squares for the Knit a Squillion action, for which I committed to knit 25 squares this year.

Knit a squillion squares for Africa: Join the challenge!

Yarns for charity squares

I was reading Minimalist Knitter's (aka Robyn's) site as I often do and came across her newest charity endeavour: participating in Knit a Squillion action by Knit a Square.

 

Their ambitious plan is to to send 1,2 million squares to South Africa by July 10, 2012.

 

I mean: wow. 1,2 million squares will make blankets for 36.000 children in need. I thought: I want to participate in this!
