This month the Square Heart Award goes to

mother and daughter team

Cathy Smith and Joan Todd

These two wonderful ladies from the USA, knit and crochet tirelessly for the children of South Africa. Their work embodies the quiet love and dedication of every member of Knit-a-Square.

When I launched a KAS challenge on my blog in 2012, Cathy and Joan sent me nearly 200 squares and garments! Each square was as beautiful as the examples you see here. Joan's grandmother-in-law generously paid for postage. This is what Knit-a-Square is all about, each of us doing our part to make a difference in the lives of the orphans of South Africa.

Cathy has also made a wonderful photo tutorial on how to "butterfly" a tail.

You can see it here.

Dear Cathy and Joan,

many, many thanks and

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.
