Two more comments from Facebook by caring individuals - the questions have been answered directly on FB, but just good to know that there are ever caring people joining our quest.

From Liz Clements :
Before I whip out some squares...I was wondering if there are any colors that are off limits. I would not want to offend another culture! Thanks.


From Sherry A Clawson
I found a very simple hat pattern so I'm making hats to add to my stack of squares (hoping to send off my 1st package next week). 

Since I'm using acrylic yarn, is it okay to wash the hats so they're softer for the kids?

New Group in Melbourne - Cast Offs!  Message from Tracey Small.
This is a our inaugural meeting held on 18 October 2011 in Melbourne where the "cast offs' grouped to knit squares!

From Keri - in Transit Sewing parties.  Keri.....In Transit: Sewing Parties!

Love this. Sewing blankets at 10,000 Homes.

From Angelic Gems - raising cash for KAS.

Here's PandoraAngelBear (she's my little helper) posing for our brand new table with the new range of Archangel Gabriel charms, 50p of which will be going to the Knit-A-Square charity.

Message from LBK Creations :

Made with Bernat Big Value discontinued yarn that I found in my mom's shed from long ago. I wish there was a similar colour! It's just so beautiful. These squares are for Knit-a-square donation.


Facebook have recently changed the settings on the KAS Facebook page.   The topmost story can appear to be several days old, but in fact other people have posted since, but for some reason the Facebook system no longer displays in date order - which really is the most rational method, but they seem to believe they know best!   To ensure you read the most recent posts please click on 'Everyone (Most recent)'  It is located just under the photos at the top of the page.

From Janet Callow :


I took 40 squares to Jigsaw Stratford-on-Avon on Tuesday 18th October, but don't know how to record the fact on the tally. Must say the shop assistant was very thrilled with my donation and made all the right noises to encourage me to continue.


(We have added Janet's total to the Squillion Tally)



The Donate button provides 2 options:

  1. One time donation
  2. Monthly subscription               [click the box]

Because of PayPal/banking fees, KAS asks that your donation be 5USD [or more].  Anything less, means your donation is eaten up with fees.  Thank you!


Our goal is to remove the monthly deficit that Ronda and her team have to deal with. You can:

1. Make a donation whenever you are able.

2. Sign up for an ongoing monthly donation (subscription).

3. Shop at the KasShop!
