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
Three more to add - 240?
Love the colours, especially the one in the middle.
Yummy selection Lesley ♥️
WELL DONE EVERYONE OUR NUMBERS ARE SWELLING!!! ✔️✔️✔️
J'ai mis mes trois nouvelles paires de chauffe-mains dans la rubrique photos : à ajouter au dernier total.
I put my three new pairs of hand warmers in the photos section: to add to the last total
looks like another stash of handwarmers from Eva 36 in the photos !
AND 11 hat and handwarmer sets to be added to total!
Wow! Our numbers are soaring this week with the help of so many contributors. We are way past the halfway point. Let's keep going.
New Total - 290
I think Eva's have already been added as 47....on 19 Aug she posted here that 47 were done (which included 11 with hats) which are the recent 2 'Photos' she posted pictures of yesterday.... Could be wrong, but that's how I took her information, Kx
gosh this is confusing... sorry if I've helped muddle things up
I have handwarmers to add but need to find a sewin up needle to complete them. Once I've done that I'll add to the total.
