What a fantastic opportunity this is for our UK knitters. The well known clothing chain, Jigsaw in the UK has partnered with KAS and knit-a-square for an autumn/winter square drive. During that time UK knitters (and crocheters can bring their squares into any of the UK stores and they will send them to South Africa on your behalf.
This initiative was bought about, because their head of marketing, Liz Sowden found knit-a-square online and was greatly touched by the work you are all doing. She thought it was the most perfect fit to launch with 'Wool Week 2011' in the UK and for the mothers who shop for their children and their own clothes in their stores.
Let's think about what other wonderful 'fits' exist out there in other countries to organise a similar opportunity.
Everyone wins, especially our children. Look forward to your ideas everyone.

Yes, my sister was so delighted with my story that she has offered to deliver my next blanket too.
