I love this new set up, specially with the graphs comparing the monthly results for the previous and current years. This should stimulate uswhen we realise that numbers are down in certain months.

This is very good, very interesting.  It may become my favourite forum thread.  Roz x

tho just a reminder that KAS still has a beanie mountain so its squares and tops that are the priorities? I have abut 5 nearly finished tops which should be able to get out to you before the cold weather hurrah!

Yes Mary, our focus this year is on squares and tops.   Great about your tops....5 more warm children :-)

Way to go Mary.  Since starting up loom knitting I've got 2 1/2 done in very soft yarn and they'll get there before winter in South Africa too. :)  I also love the graphs, I can scan them and take it all in within moments.  I do love the photo at the end of the smiling children, that right there is the whole reason why we do what we do. Love those kids!  Yes, all of them.  And the more we can give a KAS hug to the better....be it a blanket, hat, top, handwarmers etc.

Thanks Valerie and Roz :-)

Thanks for this lovely visual record Linda, it will prove interesting over the coming months!

Oh, I like these graphs. They appeal to my inner geek...lol.

And I was totally chuffed to see my name on the Received Squares list. Woop woop!!

Great that your name was on the List Barb !   The graphs will be a good way to check our progress in 2014.

What a great idea showing the graphs! I love it all and it certainly makes me want to crack on with everything - a real incentive!

I like the idea of the graphs for comparison purposes.  On my second go-over and will be posting both of them and some squares as soon as it is finished.

Great Ute !  More warm children :-)
