Knit a Square moved into what we loving call The Barn in 2015. It is located in Randburg, not far from our post office. This is a very large space that allows us to sort all the post, make blanket packs, stack blankets, and most important create our wonderful KAS cakes. Our volunteers show up on Tuesday morning around 9:00am and work their magic until about 3:00pm. Themba has already collected the post, and often times will make a distribution on Tuesdays.
Please know that the Barn is a success due to all our contributors, financial donors and volunteers. Without your ongoing support we would find it difficult to carry on.
Thank you all for everything.
Check in to this discussion frequently to see the latest news and photos from The Barn. Many thanks to our marvelous reporter, Estelle for bringing the fun of The Barn to us.
Thanks Estelle, much appreciated.
Thanks so much for the effort you put into getting these photos so we can see how the barn works, and what wonderful things show up there.
I love seeing everything -- toys, hats, handwarmers, blankets, and distributions. It is a beehive of activity, and we get to feel the excitement from afar. What a joy!
I was certain we had a parcel from you on Tuesday Diane, perhaps they were your beautifully knitted squares….will have to check!
This report is a little late, so sorry, but I was on vacation/holiday with very little internet service. The Barn was so busy on October 4...lots of parcels and lots of activity.

Thank you very much for this account of today's parcels. My friend Bev is so chuffed to see her blanket + pile of hats pictured too - you've made her day! Well done everyone ✔️
Thanks for sharing this report Amy….and so quickly!
Heather Mensah has shared this photo and lovely word about the hand-warmers from this week's post.
All the handwarmers on top of this pile came in my parcel but most were made by my 80-year-old cousin, Joyce. She's knitted over 100 pairs for KAS, over time. Here she is, already on with her next batch!
