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
Love the fuzzy soft looking pink hand warmers in the bottom photo. Lots of lovely colours in the top photo too. We are making great inroads on our tally challenge. Well done everyone!
I've just tidied up 7 handwarmers which are now ready for the long journey to SA.
338 in total
wow, everyone is making so many pairs! I have one more pair to add, but now am going to take a break from hand warmers and start sewing ends in on squares (whatever happened to my New Year resolution to sew in and finish off each square as I go??!! LOL!!!).
Wit-wooo, these are so jolly - cheers lasses!
Oh my goodness, I take some time off to celebrate a birthday, and the celebration was right here on the Forum.
Brand new, HUGE, Total - 344.
I better stay on track or we will breeze right on by 500.
Another 9 pairs of hand warmers. As usual colours don't look right, it is a really dull cloudy day today and I can't get them right. The colours are brighter than they look. There is also a pair in this set that is the same as a pair I did earlier, so they are another pair not a repeat LOL!
New total: 353
hurrah ! and I've found two unsewn up handwarmers I'll finish later today.
Thank you for letting us know another pair is going to be making its way to The Barn.
These are so pretty and well made. I love how you use up all your stash after you have completed your marvelous blankets.
