Ronda has expressed the need for a newer vehicle to transport squares and blankets. Helen Flagg has proposed to the US Group that we raise funds to help KAS purchase a car. The idea has gone global and there is an initiative on the forum about it. Check the latest ezine video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VK9mbUrGWI&feature=youtu.be
Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you...we were in Vermont when I read this and I'm still getting back to my rhythm! Getting a group together sounds like a good idea. Finding a central meeting place could be tricky... but I'm interested. Melissa hosted us at her apartment last time. I can host here in Melrose Park sometime if that's convenient. Thanks for taking the initiative to get this going!
Hi Donna, adding sides to a square can be tricky. A couple of tips: a smaller hook might help; counting the stitches on 2 sides, if it's a granny square; making sure the first added round is absolutely flat.
Now, the second problem might be the corners. I find I work best with hdc around and then (2hdc, ch 1 2hdc) in each corner.
Try these and if you have any questions just ask. I'm always happy to help a fellow crocheter.....don't ask me about knitting though LOL
Dear Donna, Thank you so much for your compliments. Like all my other KAS sisters, you all are always sooo kind! I saw the pattern on Ravelry. It was uploaded by Carola Wijma under "Celtic Knot". She gives a very clear description accompanied with pictures and clear instructions. The knot consists of three separate small parts. Wonderful that I could surprise you with an Irish Design, the symbol of Solidarity. xoxo
If you mean Hibachi, then I know it well. My husband plays there from time-to-time! Dave is a vegetarian and I am an almost vegetarian so we don't eat there but I can appreciate the ambiance and the views. Hope you enjoyed it!
"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.
