Welcome to Knit A Square Jo, from across the Pond in Canada!  I do hope your weather is behaving better, you've had some nasty storms over there and been colder than us on many occasions. Bundle up! 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   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 fit toddlers and grow with them when they are 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!

Hi Jo, welcome to the forum !  We are so pleased you have joined our world-wide family of knitters and crocheters.  We are dedicated to keeping the children in South Africa warm. 

If you have any questions about anything just ask !  There is always someone willing to help with the answer. 

Do you knit or crochet ?  Everyone loves to see what others are doing so please post photos of your work.  Just click on the photo section at the top of the page and then follow the prompts.

Have you had a chance to look at the e-zines ?  They provide wonderful photos of how our squares are helping these vulnerable children.  Their smiles are priceless !

After you have a look around you might like to join the UK  group.  There you can discuss specific questions that pertain to your area of the world as yarn weights tend to differ by country.  And crochet stitches are different here in Canada ! Also you can join any other group you would like.

Hi Jo, Welcome to the KAS forum and I hope you will enjoy being part of this friendly & lively community. Do you knit or crochet or both? Around the world caring people are all taking direct action and team-working with the Ladies of the Soweto Comfort Club - it is making a difference to many parentless children.  When you've had a chance to look around the site you would be very welcome to join the UK group for more local news and chat.

 

You can also personalize your own page by clicking on the My Page tab on the menu.  Also you can access Settings on this page and set your privacy terms.  For questions click on the Forum tab and then KAS - Questions, Answers and Help.

 

Check out the New Member Guide by clicking the "Main Page" tab above. There you will find all kinds of information about KAS. Another great section to look over is the Photo tab - everyone is so supportive of the work on display.

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.
