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.

 755   sweaters/jumpers

Hi Maryanne....yourself and LJ are fantastic!!....what wonderful parcels they will open in S.A.

 

I just sent a box today with 95 squares.  I hope I am updating this right - all I did was copy and paste the most recent numbers and add 95 to squares.  Anything else I should know about??

That's correct, Connie......and WOW! 95 squares, what a wonderful amount!!!!! Is this some squares from your Event in April(was it April?....this year is flying by.) Well done, it sure bumps up the total. :)

Yes, all of these squares were either knit/crocheted at the knit-a-thon, or as a direct result of past knit-a-thons!  We had a few lovely ladies drop off bags of squares they had been working on since last year, so over time, it does grow.  I have some pictures I will be uploading, when I find the time.....

I think we should all pause for a moment and give three cheers... or raise a glass... to Pam Antink... who, with all the other things she is doing for KAS, still finds time to check the square lists and update us here on the totals received in SA.

Last Thusday she posted the new count, and with what has been listed since then, we now have the astounding total of 164813 squares on the list!!!!  That translates into 4708 blankets, 4708 kids who will not shiver at night!!! 

 We are making a difference!!!  Thanks for the update, Pam.

Well said, Anne.  Hear, hear!!

Totally agree Anne, Pam does a wonderful job sorting out the lists.

I second that, Anne.....3 cheers for Pam.. Hip, hip, horray!!! I hope you can hear us, Pam. :))

Thank you everyone - it is very very kind of you, and, I accept your comments graciously!

Kelly Kimball mailed 42 squares on Sat 6/9/12

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
