2012 COMBINED TALLY - KNIT-A-SQUILLION SQUARES & ITEM COUNT - we've broken the 230,000 barrier!

Off they go!Crochet Baby Surprise JacketSquares Dec 2011-10Crochet HatSummer Challenge SquaresMy first hatJanuary JewelsPretty In PinkTeddiesP1030550

Well done everyone!  The figures continue to grow year-on-year. They represent hours of caring, kindness and giving by a 'global family' of yarn workers!  The January Jewel Challenge is already getting the squares & hats flowing!

Below are the totals (so far) for 2011 - once the square lists for Nov & Dec are published I'll continue to update these figures - which are a combination of Forum totals and the Square List (which only lists Squares, Hats, Vests & Sweaters) plus Ravelry keeps it own list.  In fact, more is being sent, but at least the figures below will give a fair idea.

6229  hats

 755   sweaters/jumpers

   19   baby blankets

   68   kascuddles

   15   prs gloves

 254   slipovers/ pullovers

     2   tee shirts

     8   blankets

     3   snood/cowls

  230  soft toys

     5   scarves

   10   slippers baby jackets

 157   prs socks (requested by Rhonda)

   92   plastic needles

   14   slip0in bit and bobs

   31  pairs knitting needles

    6   crochet hooks

    6   games

Wow!!!! that 100 000th square is just around the corner. That is a fantastic amount, Anne.

Hi, didn't get much of a response on my last post (re altering the tallies list) so thought I would go ahead and adjust as I also noticed Tee Shirts and Games had been lost from the list.  Also on page 11 the books Helen Flagg sent were not added to the total (as this was where books got lost from the list).

I also removed the snoods and cowls as there had not been anything added there in all the time this list has been going.  I also combined pens/pencils, slippers/booties and sweaters/jumpers.  I also moved the 1 scarf into the 'bits and bobs' section. Feel free to bop me if you think I am taking liberties!  It just bothered me that some items had been lost from the list!  Adjusted totals below:

Hi Wendy...hope you noted that I had put the books back in to the totals a couple of days ago..:)

You've done well!!!!

Help!  Please add 298 squares, 10 Kas cuddles, 20 socks, 24 pencils, 7 hats, 9 soft toys, 1 child's pullover, coming from Slovenia.  

Hi Bev,

Thanks, yes I noticed you had returned the books to the list, but I did note too that Helen's books hadn't been added so fixed the numbers there.  Glad books are sorted now too, I have some more that I will send with my next parcel.

Yes, sorry about that Wendy...I was more focussed on reinstating the missing books to the list than checking details of Helen's wonderful list of goodies..

Yesterday I have sent 14 squares and 10 pairs of socks. Also 20 February I have sent 25 squares and garments so totals adjusted are:
