Hello dearest KAS members
We have a new challenge for you for May and June. There is an opportunity in South Africa for a truck to be driven up to Zimbabwe filled with squares. Now we just need the squares to fill it. Mother of Peace in Zimbabwe will sew the squares into blankets and give them to children who are in such desperate need.
An exciting prospect and we need MASSES of squares to make it happen. So here's what you do: knit squares, lots of them! Address them to the same address:
Private Bag X900
Please mark them clearly as "SQUARES FOR ZIMBABWE" and there you have it. Children in Zimbabwe will be warmed and feel your love. Please keep a tally as we did for the bus challenge. Thanks everyone, and good luck!
Hi Mary, great so the tally is now:
And yes, slip ins are great, thank you!
well done Andrea! looks good!
I've just bought all the colours needed and just completed one plain yellow at the mo.
did you start with a chain of 29?
:) looks great!!!
Hi Cheryl! The square is 28 stitches across, so yes - chain of 29. The green yarn is a bit thinner than the other colours... normally I would have had 27 stitches across for 8" even. My colours are a bit off but I was excited to start it. It's also very hard to find a good yellow!
