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

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

Well done Mili K and the Slovenian crafters :)

That is fantastic, Mili and friends.!!!

These new figures reflect the squares, tops and beanies received in South Africa minus those already recorded by Forum members on this discussion  post.  One change, the May list has combined the Sweaters, Jumpers & Vests and renamed them Tops, therefore I've followed suit.  I'm hoping, that eventually, we will see more pictures of the many many squares that others KasFolk from around the world send to South Africa.

This is wonderful, Pam! Thank you! It would be lovely to see more of the contributions from "far and wide"!

Just noticed, when I did my update the '3' is missing at the end of the Go Overs Count.  (that is it should be 13 not 1 as shown), so update below.
