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.

 755   sweaters/jumpers

   68   kascuddles

   15   prs gloves

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"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."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
