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

In the UK we use large black polythene bags to line our kitchen rubbish bins, consequently they a referred to as 'black bin bags' - even in the shops!  If anyone has space in a parcel to tuck a strong large bag inside it is always useful for Ronda.

Thanks for the information. 

It's always interesting to learn how common items have different names in different places.  We call them trash bags.

 

I often pack my squares, etc., in "freezer bags", plastic bags with zip tops , figuring they might come in handy in SA.

 

 

They certainly will Toby - nothing, and I mean nothing, is wasted!  

Am posting 40 squares & 4 hats from the groups around Newton St. Cyres, Devon, plus some bits & bobs!
