Hello everyone, the February challenge is here! We are all so excited about this concept.
Meet our 9th KasCare bus Bongani (which means be grateful in Zulu).
Our aim is to fill the bus with 35 children, each with their own KAS blanket, and hat knitted and crocheted with love by all of you wonderful people. It will take 1225 squares (which makes 35 blankets) to fill the bus, and 35 hats. Please post your tally as you knit/crochet so that we can see our progress. The tally will be as such:
Then the next person adds to the previous tally, for example:
I made 3 squares and 2 hats so the tally is now:
Please for this challenge, ONLY add squares and hats, this is to keep it simple so that we can quickly and easily see the bus/buses fill up.
Watch the bus as it fills with children and their blankets are stored on top. If any of you have ever seen a typically African bus you will know that all manner of things are housed on the roof. For our buses it will be BLANKETS!
Our aim is to create a fleet of buses filled with children, warmed by our love. This challenge will run for three months (February, March and April); let’s see how many buses we can fill!
See, we've already filled the bus Njabulo, now onto the next bus, Bongani. Watch for the newest illustration!!

I've just posted 44 squares making the new totals
