KAS Sisters, here we are, living a global nightmare, with almost every country in the world affected. We are all worried, many of us fall into the vulnerable senior group, and it seems the ‘new normal’ is to stay away from people, go out as little as possible, just hunker down and hope we and our loved ones don’t succumb to the virus.

Fortunately, our Forum is one of the safest places we can be.  We can reach out to our friends, chat, share our feelings about this pandemic and how it is temporarily changing our lives.  We can share ideas on how we are protecting ourselves as much as possible, how we are managing to keep from going nuts if quarantined, and maybe, just maybe, we can even find something to giggle about in the midst of this tragic event.  In other words, anything goes.

I hope we can fight this pandemic, armed only with knitting needles, crochet hooks, balls of yarn, our sense of compassion, and even our sense of humour.  I hope we can share our feelings in this safe place where no viruses can go (unless your computer has one).  It’s OK to express frustration or fears, and it’s OK to rejoice if you feel like it.  None of us have ever faced anything like this before – let’s get through it together, ’cause that’s what Kas Sisters do.

How lovely to be able to get together for a happy celebration, Chris. I have no doubt that Sharon was there, joining in, in spirit. xo

That is a beautiful song, Glo. Anne will always be missed by those privileged to have known her.  xo

Who else does this......?   I can't be alone here........    I often find scribbled, or in fact quite detailed written messages to myself about previous projects.    I really surprise myself when I can, almost always, understand what my scribblings mean - my husband thinks they're hieroglyphics.......

Yes, Karen, I make notes too - must be the secretarial background. What I find particularly annoying is if I've made a note of a yarn I particularly like and then it gets discontinued. Pray tell me what is a dobber? I've never heard that in relation to knitting, I thought it was something you used when playing bingo.

My notes are when I've done a square or 2 from and ball then moved on to something else.   And watch the 123 theme for the dobber reveal..........tee-hee!

I really don't mainly because I am a champion at putting lists somewhere........ and then not seeing them again for decades sometimes!!

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.
