Opening Days in the

Knit A Square Barn 2021

From this... this... this...

...ending with full shelves.

Opening day at the KAS Barn is all about opening parcels and sorting the squares.  Bundling the squares to be sewn into blankets and then preparing blankets for distributions.

We hope that 2021 will be a year of great success for KAS and all the children of South Africa that receive KAS blankets.

3rd blanket down is mine.   Fast travel process from here to there.  Made my day to know that ♥️

love your stripey blanket strips, Karen, especially with the tweedy stripes between.

it gives you a warm feel when you see your own blanket, glad it got there.

What a great opening day. Amy, you mentioned that some of the volunteers had COVID, I do hope they are recovering well, sending them my best wishes.

Lovely to see all the goodies that have been arriving at the Barn.

Thank you very much for these beautiful pictures.  What an amazing bunch of blankets and goodies!  This lot must have been a treat for the volunteers to open.  A great start to 2021 ... xo

What a lot of wonderful knitting and crochet!  Toys, blankets, hats, squares...... Letters and numbers, Christmas, flags, stripes and emojis - it is like a reminder of the whole of last year! 

Well done to all the creators - and a huge thank you to all who were involved in the opening today!!

Thanks Amy for laying this out so professionally. It was a great start to the new year, you have no idea how excited we get opening the post. Gloria you’re quite was like Christmas all over again.
