Hi Jackie, welcome to Knit A Square, a charity providing blankets, hand warmers, soft toys and hats to orphans and AIDS victim children throughout South Africa.   We are very glad to have you with us!  I am over in NW Ontario and we have the option of sea mail to post. It takes 6 weeks or so but gets there just the same.  Check out our Groups area (see top of Square Circle page, far right) to find groups formed in your countries of interest .  You can join as few or many groups as you wish and there are many good tips for posting to be found there, as well as fun get-togethers and knitting afternoons and other tidbits members share.  The photos section contains a small sampling of contributors’ items since  some of us have a dickens of a time uploading photos for some reason.  The Discussions section is large but check out the reports from South Africa and there’s areas  Postal Information and chatting as well.  Again, welcome!  Ask questions freely and have fun sending your love and warmth to the children! (And check out the monthly challenges for interesting ideas of what to knit or crochet or loom knit along with other KASers)

Hi Jackie.

A warm welcome to Knit A Square..... from over here in Western Australia.

Knitting or crocheting an 8" square or two or possibly even a few is a wonderful gift for the vulnerable children of South Africa. They love to receive their blankets, created from squares, which come from kindly, caring folk such as yourself, from over 60 countries all over our world. You are encouraged to knit/crochet in any stitch you prefer, but we do ask that they not be too 'lacy' as warmth is our highest priority. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone to all our blankets. These are single colour squares that are in garter stitch(knitting) or single crochet as they are very solid and provide a contrast to a picture/striped/patterned square or two that may be added to a blanket.By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of patterns provided by our fellow K-A-Sers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist, you can see what items we are currently focusing on.

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.
