Over the past few years I have often been inspired by members as they share how they pray or think positive thoughts for the children with each stitch. The image of love, friendship and brotherhood boxed up and finding the way to Ronda and team in SA gives me hope.As 2011 dawns what do we need most across the globe? What does that look like to you? How can we make an abstract concept into something we can hold in our hands as gifts to the children of SA?
How would the lives of the orphans improve if our most fervent wish were to come true?
Fairness and friendship are 2 other virtues I will reflect on with each stitch.
I know that Ronda is hoping for larger beanies/hats. We have a surplus of teeny, tiny baby hats and larger children hoping/waiting for a hat of their own. Larger beanies (for children 3-11 and teens 12+) would be a nice for Ronda & team to receive in the coming weeks. Imagine the joy they'll have stockpiling warm hats for the next winter season in SA. I think it will give them peace of mind.
Ronda and team have much enjoyed the colourful squares sent during an earlier challenge (the Pete Lovemore memorial challenge). When in doubt, colourful squares are always needed year round.
Please share your reflections as you work your way through the December challenge. It will be wonderful to hear from all of you and to have a little more insight into your thoughts about the children, our world and how KAS continues to shine a light on South Africa's most vulnerable citizens.

It's still only November so I'm a bit ahead of myself this month. I have always considered rainbows to be especially appropriate to KAS as symbols of promise and hope, a new beginning, and over the past months I have attempted to knit quite a few. Last month I tried crochet which has to be simple because of my lack of skill. The actual colours are much brighter than in the pictures even though I tried photographing them out of doors. I'm very pleased that hats are still wanted too....
