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)

That’s absolutely amazing Karen that’s about 16,245 SA Rands which is a fortune for KAS. WELL DONE and THANK YOU and all your sponsors. 

Karen, your perseverance has paid off in a big way.  Thank you to you ... and to all our generous KASers for their support.  That is an impressive total ... xo

What an amazing job Karen.  Congratulations for a job well done.

Wow, look at all those funds you have raised for KAS...I am off to send in my pledge.

Thanks ever so much Amy!    The balance raised is going up and up, Kx ✔️

More $ have been added and the total paid has now reached     $1363US.

Thanks for the reminder -- pledge has been sent. Thanks also for your lovely hard work!

Thank you very much indeed ❤️

New total =. 1468USD

Karen I’ve been away and can’t believe how the total has risen. You have done a thoughtful and  caring project…you must be dreaming knitting needles and stitches. Many many thanks from all of us at the barn. 

Karen, I hope you will bask in the glow of your phenomenal accomplishment for a long time :)  I'm still looking at first base ... from the bleachers ... haha  I will try some of the patterns you made and am planning to make use of the side notes you shared for each square.  Thank you so much!   xo

Thank you.  I pondered about leaving comments with each square, so just made note of the technical issues I had.   My years of experience made me see them differently than anyone challenging themselves with less knowledge under their belt so to speak.

As one or 2 turned out a little scrappy I may reattempt some + present better versions of them in the future ❤️

 1500USD

Well done Karen! What a great boost for KAS's finances.
