35 SQUARES MAKE A BLANKET

FUNDRAISING IDEA

Recently a booklet of knitting patterns for 8" squares became available for FREE download in our KAS Shop.

I am challenging myself to make one of every pattern by 2022 (17 weeks away!).    Many of the 35 designs are new to me and may prove difficult to accomplish, but I will give them all a good go!!

To benefit KAS through my challenge I would appreciate US$ sponsorship per different pattern square, or as nominated US$  pledge for my total effort.

Wish me luck!  

(Money to be submitted in January please)

Well.......... I'm off and clicking here with pledges of $1 per different square from my Husband and Son respectively, up to the maximum of 35 - which means $70 on the board already.    I'm pretty touched that both my "boys" chose to support my endeavours as usually they just pull my leg about the amount of "strew" I leave beside and behind me when I am, or have been, knitting!    A great start and support from family to boost my resolve.

Other fantastic news is that an anonymous member has pledged to sponsor match!!

 Another magnificent pledge has come forward to me privately from a member who wishes to stay anonymous, $10 per different square from the booklet completed with photographic proof.   Haven't we got off to a terrific start!! !!   I'm delighted ✔️

I'm in at $1 a square. I have every faith in you, Karen!

Thank you very much!!    That's $13 per different square + the anonymous matching donor.   I'm on square 3 just now.

I'm in with $1/square. I think you'll smash it, Karen.  :))

Thanks Bev sweetie, love you for that!  ♥️.    I will give them all a decent try at least.

Karen, this is a great idea for a fundraiser!  You can include me for $1 a square.  Have fun trying the different patterns!

Excellent, Thank You ⭐  I am off to a good start + really appreciate your support!
