Hey, Andria, that's absolutely GREAT!  So happy that it worked out for you!  It's fun to have both knitting and crochet to do alternately.  Keeps things interesting!  Hope you enjoy the grannies!

Hi, Andria! Thanks for getting back to me!

I think the idea of trying crocheting is a fabulous one! I'm new to both knitting and crocheting and thought the latter insurmountable. Then I tried the tutorial on crocheting on the Lands End website - it was SUPER clear. That helped me with straight-line crocheting and soon I was churning out squares faster than ever. (I may be wrong, but I think crocheting produces squares more rapidly than knitting.) Here's that link:

Go to the videos section on that welcome page and select the crochet video.

However, I kept seeing all these beautiful, colorful granny squares on the KAS website and couldn't start a granny for ANYTHING till I visited the step-by-step NON-video tutorials on the Little Tin Bird blog at the recommendation of a KAS member. At last it all made sense and I've been churning out the grannies ever since. It's so much fun! Here's the link:

Thanks for inviting me, I have lots to learn and this seems like a great place to not only learn but to be able to donate my time to a wonderful cause.

Hey, Andria --

Thanks for "friending" me. I've enjoyed your posts up to now, so it's great to get to "meet" you in person!

I live in a suburb of Philadelphia called Radnor, not far from Villanova University, if you've ever heard of that! :-D

I'm new to knitting, even newer to crocheting, and very excited about producing a square a day. Finished today's, by the way.

But what I'm most working on this week is actually sending the squares to Soweto! Wish me luck!

Wow! All those squares and a hat! Bravo. And yes, hats are addictive! Do you have a favourite pattern or do you like to take a simpler hat and use lots of colour?

Hello Andria!

Welcome to the knit-a-square community. So glad you've found us.



The Donate button provides 2 options:

  1. One time donation
  2. Monthly subscription               [click the box]

Because of PayPal/banking fees, KAS asks that your donation be 5USD [or more].  Anything less, means your donation is eaten up with fees.  Thank you!


Our goal is to remove the monthly deficit that Ronda and her team have to deal with. You can:

1. Make a donation whenever you are able.

2. Sign up for an ongoing monthly donation (subscription).

3. Shop at the KasShop!

Please follow this discussion for monthly updates, current financial reports and ideas on what we can all do to help. Click link :
