We’ve had a particularly long and snowy winter here in Canada but the signs were slowly appearing that Spring was around the corner. The geese came back, the snow melted (with the exception of some stubborn snowbanks), the garden showed signs of coming back to life and there is even a duck nesting in it. And then yesterday it snowed. AGAIN. Will winter ever end, I wondered?

Then I checked out the April challenge on the KAS forum, Colour Collision. Could anything be more right to combat the white fluffiness of never ending snow? I’m lucky enough to have a large stash of yarn, balls given to me from here and there or picked up from a sale I couldn’t resist. I raided my stash last night for the most colourful yarns I could find and worked them up into the most colourful square I could think of.

I know winter can’t last forever but it certainly does feel like it sometimes. Working on this square lifted my spirits and I hope it will lift the spirit of a little one when they receive it in a finished blanket.

Here are some photos of other members’ Colour Collision squares, and what an amazing job they’ve done!
