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

   19   baby blankets

   68   kascuddles

   15   prs gloves

That's fabulous Barbara!!

Hi I hope this is the right place to ask this question.In the next few weeks I will be posting a large amount of squares, hats and jumpers that have been knitted by my school community. I wanted to ask about the jumpers. Are they needed or are they best sent elsewhere?

Absolutely, Shirley, they are needed.  Winter is approaching in SA and lots of our kids will be cold.  How wonderful that your school community is on board.

Mailed today one parcel with 6 hats, 2 stuffed toys, 10 plastic needles, 2 pair plastic knitting needles, 6 pair socks & 16 squares.  A special thanks to my Mom for paying my shipping! :o)
