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.
KAS PatternBook Links for Hand-warmers
Yay to Sharon and Wendy for making these colourful beauties!!!!
Another great bundle of hand-warmers to contribute to the cause. Well done.
Total - 366
Up to 366 pairs already, fantastic news! Loving all the different patterns and colours, amazing to see how many variations there are.
For the next couple of months I am going to concentrate on knitting handwarmers with the odd square thrown in for COM.
Good lass ♥️✔️
Not sure where this will land up !!!
I have finished 18 pairs of Handwarmers and will mail them off this week.
Wehey, your terrific handwarmer news landed in the right place!! Thank you for your contribution Xx ✔️
Great news Pat, and thank you so much for posting this information.
New Total 384
WOW! Karen, these are terrific. The children will love them.
1 more pair done.
These are such fun to mix and match left over odds and ends of yarn! What doesn't look like much yarn does a stripe! All the little odd balls of yarn I have are getting used up nicely. (But still a slow knitter, so its only one pair at a time from me)
found 2 more pairs! I make the total 405!
Slow and steady wins the race, Sadie! Every pair counts just the same.
