At the end of July Estelle put out this post to Karen Gordon...

Karen I remember opening a box of approximately 50 pairs of hand warmers from you.  If you have any more small balls of yarn we’d love some hand warmers from our star knitter….we have suddenly run out of them.

 

Several of us jumped on board and said we would like to help out, too.

Please join us with the challenge to

MAKE 500 HAND-WARMERS

FOR KAS

The Barn is currently out of hand-warmers and our volunteers are making distributions without them.

With the current issues with post arriving to The Barn we need to restock our supply of hand-warmers. 

Every year KAS tries to distribute 5,000 blankets to children. These need hand-warmers to go with them.    

Included in this introduction are some hand-warmers that have been posted by member since Estelle's request. 

We are adding them to our total. 

 

Let's color in our hands to reach 500 pairs of HAND-WARMERS made for the children.

TOTAL - 366

We are more than 1/2 way of reaching our goal.

Way to Go Team KAS!

You can post a photo or just let us know how

many you will be posting to South Africa.

Sadie, I am just making a pair of handwarmers and thought this might be useful for you.  The pattern I use is ribbing - 36 stitches k2 p2.  Sorry it has come out sideways, this happens every time I upload a photo for some reason!

Thank you, very helpful! I was thinking that what I had looked too skinny, even for a child's wrist, so seeing like this is great.

ps - I have also learned that I am the world's slowest knitter when it comes to rib LOL!!

Well, it has been a while since I attempted HW, but here is the first set.

Great STACH busing project.

Eeee, that's SUPERB!    I'm getting myself all excited....

I've made 5 handwarmers

That is great news Mary.  Up goes the total.

Total 56

Yippee - did you find the odd one then Mary.... Tee-hee X

I don’t think it’s going to take long to reach the total, Amy!

Fingers crossed in making that statement true, Marion.

1st pair successfully made! Unfortunately adding a photo is beyond me and my computer's skills lol.

Off to start the next pair!

No worries about posting photos.  Will add this one to the Total.

Je m'engage à tricoter une dizaine de paires de chauffe mains d'ici la fin de l'été. Dès que je peux je poste des photos.

"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."
