Hi Eva!  I'm sorry I didn't get on here, back when you originally joined, to welcome you to our forum!  As I'm sure you can tell, we have a wonderful group and you couldn't find more supportive individuals!  Knit-a-Square is such a worthwhile and heartwarming charity to be part....we are really like a family, even though we live all over the world!  So, I just wanted to say I am happy to see you on here and welcome to the KAS forum!

About 140, I think.  I've done a few more since and have 150 ready to post, but I'm taking a pause for a bit now as I have another knitting project to wrap up.

Ha Ha Eva ... If we have to have an addiction, I think this one is the one to have!   What could be more satisfying than working for these children?   And we get to play with yarn and patterns in the process.  Your work is wonderful, so I hope we get to see lots more.   Enjoy!

Hi Eva, Welcome to KAS from western Canada! .  Do you like to knit or crochet (or both)?  I'm glad you liked the fish square.  It is fun to make up a design and try it out.  Also I love to look through the photos for inspiration and look at all the lovely work and ideas of the other members.  Plain squares are so relaxing to make too and they need them so much for the blankets.  Even one makes so much difference.   Warm Welcome !!! :)

Greetings Eva, rather abit late from up in Canada above MN! Sorry, the heat and humidity rather wilted me for a bit there.  Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African HIV/Aids orphans and the poorest of the poor. Glad to have you with us!  It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, in the header above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world, not to mention Patterns where you can get inspired with easy level patterns of things the children really need, the right sizes and shapes.

 

When you click on Discussions, the Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section above) shows the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I also recommend the Café KAS Discussion section, which contains the Furry, Feathered and Fishy Companions and Share A Yarn threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic!  Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!

Welcome to KAS from Nashville, TN!  I grew up in East Aurora, NY.  So glad you've joined us in our efforts to warm orphans and vulnerable children of South Africa.  It's a great group, doing lots of down-to-earth good.

Hello Eva.  Welcome to Knit-a-Square from the Atlantic Coast of Canada … beautiful Nova Scotia, to be exact. A desire to share and to help keep the children in South Africa warm has brought together a wonderful group of caring individuals from all over the world. We are delighted that you have joined us.

This is where we receive information from Ronda and the volunteers in South Africa (South Africa Reports), have our questions answered (Helpful Hints), find patterns (Kas Pattern Book) share photos (Photo tab), conversation, and an occasional good laugh (Share a Yarn) with other Forum members. There are many ongoing discussions (DiscussionsCategories) for you to follow and/or join, and other specific groups (Groups) that may interest you. Just browse through the tabs at the top of the page, and I’m sure you’ll find whatever information you need.

The KAS Pattern Book includes patterns for garments that have been designed by KAS with the specific needs of the children in mind. We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years, as this age group is in need of warm garments and blankets.

Our main focus is 8” x 8” (20 cm x 20 cm) squares for blankets. It doesn’t matter if they are simple knitted or crocheted squares (Plain Janes, we love to call them) or fancy squares. What does matter is that they measure 8” x 8” (20 cm x 20 cm) and that they are warm. Plain Janes are the backbone of KAS. They provide the framework for a few fancy squares to create individuality in a blanket. Since it takes 35 squares to make one blanket, squares are always needed.

Every square you send will be received in South Africa, stitched into a blanket by the wonderful volunteers there, and lovingly wrapped around the shoulders of a vulnerable or needy child, giving him or her warmth and the assurance that someone cares.

Each month we have a different theme/challenge. These are for fun and inspiration, and you are welcome to join in any or all of them. You will find information regarding all of these (including the current ones) under the DiscussionsCategories tab at the top.

Regarding postage, many of us use sea-mail and find that parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive in South Africa. Since parcels are arriving all the time, this is perfectly okay and we encourage you to use the least expensive way to send. Also, it is extremely important that it is clearly marked on our packages “Knitted Squares for Charity Only – No Commercial Value”.

So please sit back, relax, put your feet up, grab your yarn and hook/needles and enjoy. You are among friends.

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.
