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



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.

Another 10, this time in COM

Wow Diane, you have been very, very busy in the lavender yarn world.  These hand-warmers are terrific.

I love the horizontal stripes.  

The children will be so happy to have warm hands, soon.

Beautiful work, Diane. Very neat knitting and of course I love the colours!

j'ai fait au total 26 chauffe-mains multicolores : je les poste à Valérie la semaine prochaine avec une cinquantaine de carrés et j'espère en ajouter d'ici-là. Dès que le technicien a réparé mon ordi j'envoie une photo.

Mireille,  thank you so much for 26 pairs of hand-warmers.  I know they are lovely.

Yes, posting on this site can be a bit challenging.  

Diane and Mireille are adding 26 pairs of hand-warmers.

New Total - 179

We will have The Barn restocked in not time at all...well depending on the post.

TWENTY SIX!!! thats marvellous

Here are 10 pair that are crocheted.   

I just sent a big package to the KAS barn, so it might be awhile before these get to the children, but eventually they will get there.

Sharon I love these, and I am glad you were able to adjust to get 10 pairs done so quickly!

Total - 189

Thanks, Amy.   It is nice to see the total growing so fast!

I don't know what I was thinking when I made the first pair.   I guess my brain took a little vacation from thinking that day.  LOL

2 more pairs done.

Work (school) starts back next week, so I'm enjoying the end of my holiday doing as much knitting as possible. Once "real life" starts again there won't be nearly enough time for fun things like hand warmers and blanket squares.

3 pairs done and I will make more. A good patron to knit!
