Welcome to Knit A Square Hannah from the middle of Canada. I find KAS such a rewarding cause to be involved in and I hope you enjoy it too.  Do check out the New Member Guide which is found by clicking "Main Page" in the header above.  To reach the Discussions just click Forum above and if you click on Photos above, you will see items that are heading to Africa, in all colors and shapes, plus those that have arrived there. If you click on Groups, above, you can join the friendly Aussie group or any groups you wish, to chat with.  Any questions just PM me. :) 

We have an increased need for cardigans, sweaters, Go-Overs and Slip-Overs in sizes 3 and up (to early teen), but if you have baby items made or donated to you, they will be delivered to those charities in Johannesburg which can distribute them. Hats that fit toddlers and will grow with them need to be made in small adult head sizes.  As I have a large melon, I make my hats an inch or two smaller in circumference, but always stretchy, so they fit and then grow with the orphan.

We always need 8” (or close enough) squares, knitted, crocheted or felted from old sweaters.  The G4 prison alone can handle sewing up 100,000 squares per month.  Daunting until you realize over 80 countries are contributing now, 300+ schools, and each of us is doing our own small part which adds to the whole. Thank you so much for anything you can do for the orphans, there are literally millions of them.

So, welcome to Knit A Square! Blankets and hats and sweaters direct from our hands to their hearts, a win-win.   And now we’re helping out in Zimbabwe too and they need everything there too.  I just love making a real difference in a child’s life.  So welcome aboard!

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.
