we can now relax and take a leisurely ride with the KASvan.

 We’ll travel from the Bryanston Post Office to the Knit-a-Square Office.

Pam informs me she has 650 squares ready to mail next week.

New Total: 26,944.

We have reached our destination!

Thank you to everyone who has participated.  769 more children will be warm this winter.

Congratulations Knit-A-Square!   769  more blankets to warm the children.   Sorta warms me, too.

Dare I ask?    Where are we going next?   

Wonderful! Well done to everyone who took part and thanks to Linda for keeping everything so well organised. All those children snuggled up and warm!

WOW isn't that marvelous and I have just come here to add 210 squares knitted into 6 blankets for the children and singlets and stationery sent by the lovely ladies of the Scots Memorial Uniting Church Mission Club.

Great news. All those lovely squares!!!

Hi, I've just joined the group. What size squares would you like me to knit and/or crochet?

Hi Sarah-Jane, lovely to have you with us. We welcome knit or crochet squares and aim to make them as close to 20cm (8") as possible. There's more information here under Frequently Asked Questions http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/frequently-asked-questi.... As you're in the UK you'd be very welcome to join the UK Group (or any other that you fancy).

All colours, patterns etc are fine and there are some ideas both in the KAS Pattern Book and under Members' Patterns. We love to see photos of your work if you care to post them, and you will find the Photos section inspirational. Each month we have a theme just for variety but that's entirely optional.

Look forward to hearing from you again.

Linda, here is a message from Karla Bystrianska.  I´d like to inform that in the morning I sent a parcel with 2 soft toys, 1 blanket and 20 squares. xo

Thanks Anneke and Karla.
We reached our destination on March 28 (see my comment above). The Van 'collected' enough squares to make 769 blankets ! More warm children this winter.

This discussion is now closed....but keep on making squares, there are more children in need of a warm blanket.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
