2014 KNIT-A-SQUARE TALLY

                              

          

In order to shorten and simplify the item count list this year,  

we are asking that you choose from the following list when recording what you send.

 This will make it much easier for everyone to copy and paste the list.

  • SQUARES
  • TOPS (includes vests, sweaters, Go-Overs)
  • BEANIES/HATS (please don’t forget, KAS South Africa has a room full of hats to distribute)
  • KASCUDDLES
  • SOFT TOYS (teddies, dolls, cuddly toys)
  • SCARVES/NECK WARMERS/MITTENS/GLOVES/HAND-WARMERS
  • SOCKS/UNDERWEAR (includes t-shirts, undershirts/singlets, underpants and slippers)
  • SUPPLIES FOR GOGOs (knitting needles, crochet hooks, sewing needles, yarn)
  • BITS AND BOBS (pens, pencils, books, anything that doesn’t fit in elsewhere)

         

How do I add to the ongoing tally?

If you were able to add to the 2013 Tally without a problem please continue to use that method. However, if you are having problems, try one of these options:   [iPad users may still have difficulty]

Option 1:

  1. Go to the last entry in the tally
  2. Copy the entire list to Word Pad or Clipboard
  3. Make changes in the list to reflect the number of items you are sending
  4. Copy the entire list again
  5. Click on ‘Reply to This’ (right under the introduction) Add a comment: “Joan – adding 5 squares, I hat, 2 pr. socks” then paste the revised list.
  6. Click on Add Reply.

This will place your reply at the very end of the discussion so the next person leaving a message will have the correct figures

Option 2

  1. Click on ‘Reply to This’ (right under the introduction), Add a comment: “Joan – adding 5 squares, I hat, 2 pr. socks"
  2. Go to the last entry in the tally and copy the entire list
  3. Paste in ‘Reply to This’, after your comment
  4. Make changes in the list to reflect the number of items you are sending
  5. Click on Add Reply.

This will place your reply at the very end of the discussion so the next person leaving a message will have the correct figures

If you absolutely find this process baffling, just post a note of what you are sending, No worries – one way or another we’ll get them added to the tally.

 

The KAS Reaches Great Heights for the Children

is working its way towards Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa.  

After recording in the 2014 Tally, go to the Heights Challenge by clicking here to add your squares to the Heights total. 

See where we have travelled and how high the stack has become!

[Please add to the latest comment]

A TIP:

It is a good idea to check the Squares Lists every month to see when your parcels arrive.  The South African team doesn't always have time to send a reply ...although they do try !

Not that I want to discourage anyone, but I don't think that the postal strike is over yet. I have a backlog just 'hanging around' my house, too, but am not sending them as I am concerned as to  what  might  happen in South Africa, if too many parcels arrive there and can't be released to Ronda.  :))

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.
