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

   15   prs gloves

Yay Nina!  You keep plowing on.

Thanks Mili,   Some of the yarn you sent me last year has slowly made it's way to S. Africa as beanies or slipovers.  I've taken some photos of the them, I've just got to figure out how to get them from the memory card onto the computer and then onto this website.  I've done it before so I'll figure it out, eventually.  lol
