KAS Knitalong & Gallery

child-in-blanketOur Knit-A-Square Challenge and KnitALong is over, and we have a winner! Twila of California, USA, won when her 3oth square was chosen by Michael Daniel’s Random Number Generator. Congratulations, Twila, and thank you all for so many beautiful squares! They’ll keep children warm so beautifully.

Must say thanks also to our three designers: Diana Troldahl, Lucy Neatby, and Kristeen Griffen-Grimes, who so graciously designed beautiful squares specially for KAS, and to Kirsty Clarke of Wharfedale Woolworks for her generous (and gorgeous) contribution of her hand dyed yarn.

Thanks also to Byron Bennett, the author of the PhotoSmash plugin that runs the gallery — he helped me get the thing set up so it actually worked!

And many special thanks to Dawne, who was willing to follow up on an idea — it was a lot of work, I know, so many kudos to you, Dawne! Your generosity and love for these kids who need so much help shines through.

Now I have to figure out how and when to do the next one. :)

Here’s all of the posts thus far associated with the KAL, including the posts with our special designer squares.

Each finished square (with the exception of mine, Dawne’s, our square designers, and staff or employees of Knit-A-Square) was also an entry into a drawing for an exciting knitterly (or crocheterly) prize, which was drawn using an online random sequence engine. One lucky stitcher won the prize after our deadline of February 14th March 15th when all the squares had been entered into the gallery.

Thanks for helping the kids, to all the stitchers, designers, and dyers!
