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 - 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.

Marvellous Sadie! I have a few pairs but need to sew them up before I can add to the total.

A few pairs! That's even better! Onwards and upwards to the end of the month! Hopefully I can get at least another couple of pairs done.

Great job Sadie.

Every pair of hand-warmers make a big difference, especially on cold winter days and night.

Thanks.


Completed a set of 10 pairs of hand-warmers based around 200g pale blue.

Kudos Karen, these are truly smashing and will be such a success in South Africa.

I do love me some sky blue in anything.

Adding 11 more to the total for those made by Sadie and Karen.

Everyone is doing a great job in supporting this challenge.

Total - 221

One more pair for me - the lilac ones I just posted in the August theme.

Total 222

Five pairs of handwarmers . Total 227.

Karla, I am loving the attention to detail you are using of these hand-warmers.  Heart, anchors, geometry and stripes.  All are great.

Amy, I´m very glad you recognized it´s an anchor. It´s my own chart and I wasn´t very satified with it. 

Beautiful colors and patterns, Karla.   Your knitting skills are amazing.
