Hi

 

I am a new member who has been looking for a charity project to join.  This is nice and simple because, even though I can readily knit garments, I find the prospect of freestyle square making to be interesting and enjoyable and I have friends who knit who I can get to join in with this type of project.

Welcome, Sarah!  This is a wonderful place to be;  we all enjoy it here =)!!  And it is really nice to be able to make a variety of squares using different patterns;  keeps one from getting bored!

HI to you too Rachel.  I hope to invite my friends to join too.  I am looking forward to being part of the group.

 

Thanks for the warm welcomes ....   Sarah :)

I can see that from your profile photo.  I have a friend Linda who has also joined.  Sarah

Sarah, welcome to you and your friend Linda.  It is always interesting to see what squares everyone is making so hope to see some of yours !

Linda

Hello and welcome to you both. I am sure you will enjoy knitting for KAS and it is so rewarding to hear the latest news and see the pics of our blankets making the children feel loved!

 There are lots of lovely photos of peoples work so please have a browse and I'm sure we all look forward to seeing yours also.

Enjoy

Hi Sarah, we're really glad to have you with us!  Every square we make goes into a blanket that warms and encourages a child who has nothing.  You'll discover we also have "accidental" slip-ins of soft toys and other supplies into our parcels as they have nothing over there and every bit helps give hope and a way up and out of the poverty they're held in.  I find this charity so positive, no waiting for governments to do something, we're making a concrete difference on our own, from our hands right to them.  I love it....it also spares my family untold amounts of hand-made items they really don't need, we're so blessed over here with material goods anyways. :) Mind you, there was the time my daughter specifically asked for a brightly colored pair of slippers while she was in University.  She ought to have known better than to say that.  Oh they fit her, but wowsers were they ever bright!  I specifically hunted for and bought the brightest yarn I could find. :D  Now the kids in South Africa love bright colors, it visually stimulates them, gives cheer and hope, but I think my daughter will never ask me to do THAT again.  Heh heh heh...  ;)

Sounds like loads of fun.  I will remember what you said about slipping in gifts, I know someone who knits outfits for teddies and dolls and she's always looking to give them away.  Thanks for the great welcome and you're right, it does sound like you make a concrete difference.

 

All the best  Sarah. :)

"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."
