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)

Ah, thank you for your explanation Karen xo

Your idea of the "35 squares make a blanket" reminded me of my first KAS forum profile photo....

Anneke this is so apt and sweet. Thank You for sharing  x

What an amazing profile picture!

So inspiring.

You are off to a grand start with this fund raiser Karen.  

I am so pleased to see everyone jump on the bandwagon.  Anne is doing a little dance of excitement right now with all the attention this is getting to raise money that will benefit the children.  

Thank you so much for taking this on.

From all the non-knitters in the group.

Righto......... I have now accomplished 6 of the 35 squares from the booklet!    I thought I'd offer an update as to how the sponsorship is currently standing - $18 per different square design plus the anonymous matching donors agreement.

I wanted also to mention that I have set up a Just Giving page for anyone that would like to donate a one-off payment.   Please private message me and I will give you the link no problem. x

BRILLIANT, Karen!!! 

The texture on the diamond square is gorgeous.  :)) 

What a beautiful squares so far Karen, can't really make a choice, and I am curious to see the next ones!

I am in for $2 per square....happy dance for you and the children in SA. xo

VERY happy dance going on with me right now.... Thank you Anneke ❤️

Karen, I don’t know how I have missed this discussion until now!! I wondered why you were numbering your squares in photos! What a great fundraiser, you really are doing a grand job already and I will be delighted to donate $1 for each square.

Glo, when you make the Anne Square, I will happily make a donation. Anne would have loved this fundraiser, she put the ’fun’ into fundraising :))

….. I think I can hear your needles clicking Karen :))
