"Thank you Estelle. It has been a great honor knitting for the needy children of South Africa. We are so sad that the US Postal Service has basically priced us out of the chance to help. Since the beanies just came in, I think the last boxes of…"
"So sad to think that the postage costs will keep your beautiful work from South Africa, but it certainly understandable. But, I'm heartened to know that some small items, maybe hats and handwarmers, will still find their way to…"
A few months back, I finally got around to checking out the link you posted for your gorgeous log cabin squares...and got hooked on them....as did one or two other members. :)) They are a lot of fun to make.
Wishing you continued good health....and thanks once again, to yourself and Kathy for a fantastic effort for the children. xo
Hello Judith, so glad you’ve joined us. Keeping the children in South Africa warm has brought together a world-wide group of caring knitters and crocheters.
If you haven’t already, please read through the welcome message on the forum main page for helpful hints and things that might interest you. The FAQ category should answer any general questions you may have. If not, please ask. http://forum.knit-a-square.com
Looking for patterns ? Check out the KASPattern Book filled with ideas for both the novice and experienced knitter or crocheter.
You might like to join the Monthly challenge. This is a fun way to try new ideas or patterns. Every month, a theme is chosen, and if you wish, you may create something new and different......it could be making a plain square using a new colour, a different stitch or trying a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting. An 8”/20cm square is the perfect size for experimenting.
This month’s challenge is Plain Jane Squares, Stash Busting and UFOs. Making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still help the children. Plain Janes are the backbone of KAS. Since it takes 35 squares to make one blanket, squares are needed all the time.
If you are like the rest of us you probably have a stash of yarn just waiting to be made into squares ! This is a great way to use up that yarn and keep the children warm. Once it is used, then we can buy more :-)
UFOs are ‘UnFinished Objects’. For example: vests or sweaters, tucked away in the closet needing to be sewn up or a trim added. We will be finishing these and adding photos to the discussion. So please have a look.
We would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option at the top of the page and follow the prompts.
"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.
