2012 COMBINED TALLY - KNIT-A-SQUILLION SQUARES & ITEM COUNT - we've broken the 230,000 barrier!

Off they go!Crochet Baby Surprise JacketSquares Dec 2011-10Crochet HatSummer Challenge SquaresMy first hatJanuary JewelsPretty In PinkTeddiesP1030550

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

     2   tee shirts

Wow! Well done, Angela...that is a sign of very busy fingers...lol.

I have just been looking back over the contributions made by our members and their friends this past week and it is just fantastic.  A huge pat on the back to you all!! I seem to have spent more time unpicking this week...that's when I've had the chance to knit. Serves me right for not measuring the square at the start...instead of the finish...  :))

Maggie Rees has just sent 9 squares, 2 hats, 4 puppets, 2 soft toys and 20 coloured pencils:

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.
