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.

Mirelle!!!! ces't beau!

My friend Lauren has been recruited and she's knitted two more pairs of handwarmers.

And another 2 pairs finished.

Until now I have only ever made squares, thinking that hand warmers were "hard". Thanks to the challenge, I have found that they aren't!

Comme vous Sadie je n'aimais pas tricoter les chauffe-mains et maintenant grâce au défi j'ai trouvé mon rythme et mon style et maintenant j'adore faire ces petits chauffe-mains et je n'arrête plus : c'est pour mettre des photos sur le forum que c'est le plus difficile pour moi !

Sadie, from Mireille...

Like you Sadie I didn't like knitting hand warmers and now thanks to the challenge I found 
my rhythm and my style and now I love making these little hand warmers and I can't stop:
It's to put photos on the forum that it is the most difficult for me!

Thank you for the translation!

I too am unable to post photos - no doubt my (young adult) kids would laugh at my lack of computer skills!!

Adding 4 more pairs form Mary's friend Lauren and Sadie.  

Total - 204

Many thanks to everyone that is participating in the effort.

I have 6 pairs here finished. I am almost finished another blanket (5 squares to go) and then I will do lots more as I have quite a bit of left over yarn here from recent blankets.  Sorry the colours don't look very good, but it is night time here now and the light is not very good (especially when I am just using the camera in my phone).

New total: 210

fantastic Wendy! The colours are great esp the darker ones for boys. I've started another pair.

Thanks for these Wendy.  We can always count on you for lots of colorful and warm hand-warmers for the children.

I can't wait to see you latest blanket!

Classy hand-warmers Wendy -  our numbers are swelling ✔️

1 more pair done! (this being back at work every day has seriously cut into my knitting time!)
