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
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 - 500+
Thank you everyone...WE DID IT!
Way to Go Team KAS!
You can post a photo or just let us know how
many you will be posting to South Africa.

WOW Eva, thanks ever so much for this generous contribution + for letting us know ✔️
WOW is right!! I agree with Karen, Eva, that is so generous of you to make all those hand-warmers for the children. So looking forward to see the arrive in The Barn with all those matching beanies.
Kudo to you!
Wow!! That's FAB, Eva!!
Woot Karen! This is a bounty of color.
You were so busy while on holiday! Thank you.
Goodness what a total so far...! I took short plastic knitting needles on the plane, and in airport time + almost 5hrs flying in both directions knitting was great use of my time. Couple of folk asked what I was making too...
wow EVA YOU STAR !!!
I have 3 pairs of handwarmers to add to the total.
Thanks Patricia and Mary that is 6 more children with warm hands in South Africa.
Total - 140
3 more pairs made (2 crochet, and one knitted).
Its exciting seeing the hands above slowly getting coloured in as everyone makes more!
