Hi everyone ! Let me tell you a nice story ...

A few month ago, I sent a long letter to 10 nursing homes, about KAS , about the needs of the vulnerable children in South Africa. I asked them if they would knit for us.

2 weeks later, I called each nursing home. Some just said "no thanks", some said "not interested" (!!!!), but the last one ...

It is a nursing home in Noisy Le Roi, very near my house, called Les Jardins de Noisy.

I had a lady called Corinne on the… Continue

Hello Isabelle. I've translated quite a bit of the KAS info and some of the patterns. I'm gradually working through them. I started mainly with crochet, as I crochet rather than knit. But I've had to rapidly translate some knitting ones as most of the enquiries I have from local people are for knitting patterns.If you give me your e-mail address I'll send you what I've done so far. I try to do at least 1 per day, but got behind recently.XXX

Best wishes for the New Year...with lots and lots of squares!


I tried to contact you a few months ago about sending you squares etc. for KAS. Can you let me have your address so that I can send my things to you. It would certainly help my finances to be able to send part of my things via you.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Isabelle, I hope your trip is going well.  I used 3 of your photo's with the French translation that you sent me to bring KAS to the attention of my neighbour who works in a retirement home and a friend who is a special needs teacher in 3 local schools.  Your photographs really show the human face of this tragedy and I am sure that when people see the faces of the children, they will be moved to help.

My sister also works with special needs children in the UK.  She told me about a 6 year old boy who really struggled at school but was persuaded to join the knitting group.  He has become an excellent knitter and even made his mum a hat and scarf for Christmas! It's also helped his concentration and coordination.

Thanks Isabelle for sharing these photos with us... it is so encouraging to see how much the children appreciate their knitted blankets and hats...

Thank you so much for providing these inspiring photos Isabelle.  It will spur the Squillion challenge onwards.  Many people will easily identify their work warming the children!

Hello Isabelle - thanks for putting these lovely photographs up !  And thanks, too, for the squares, soft toys and kids' clothing you brought to SA ... Wandi is involved in a big outreach project on 20th August to feed and clothe MANY needy children, so you have helped start her collection and she is thrilled !!  Lindi has the flu today so she stayed in bed.

See you soon - thanks again - love Ronda and all on the KAS team in Jhb xxx
