Thanks for your lovely comment Lucy.   I very much admire your dolls.    I think I might try a loom.   They sell them on Create and Craft.   I am now very, very tempted.

Greetings Lucy from over in the middle of Canada!  Sorry I'm late in saying "hi", I think my brain is only just thawing out as our snow finally melts!  Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African Aids orphans. Glad to have you with us.  It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world.

The Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section) show the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I also recommend the Café KAS Discussion section, which contains the Our Furry Companions and Yarnaholics threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic!  Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!

Hello Lucy, Welcome to KAS from Shropshire - always great to see another UK member. I was born in Lewisham and when little we used to go to Bromley shopping as a treat!  There was a Chiesman's store there (now House of Fraser) and I used to get a ride on the Muffin the Mule that sat outside.  This was in the 1960s so all very different now I guess? :-)

I hope you enjoy helping us to keep the children warm.

Welcome Lucy.  You can also catch-up with events and news through our monthly news bulletin KasSnippets :  This will provide a taster of what happens during a KAS month!


We also have two new videos which are work checking out :

Welcome, Lucy, from Cheltenham Township near Philadelphia. Glad to have you here!

Hello Lucy, so glad you have 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.

Looking for patterns?  Check the KAS Pattern Book for garments and squares for the children.  We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old. 

Every month, we list the squares, beanies and tops that have arrived in South Africa. To find the ‘Squares lists’ please click the Forum tab [in the toolbar above] then on “Tallies/Item Count” for an up-to-date listing.

Click Here for a few tips for sending your parcel. Postal information is here.

This month’s KasSnippets has been e-published and I thought you might find it interesting to read. 

We have a challenge each month.  This is a fun way to try new colours, ideas or patterns. A theme is chosen, and if you wish, you may create something new and 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 we are playing at the seashore.  Please join us at Sea, Seashore and Shells with your representation of a day at the beach

If you are interested in joining any of our challenges, please note: Your parcel does not need to arrive in South Africa before the end of the challenge month.  Many of us use sea-mail and find parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive. Whenever your parcel arrives, know it will be appreciated and that you are keeping children warm.

As always, making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still help the children.  Plain Janes, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of KAS.  Since it takes 35 squares to make one blanket, squares are needed all the time.

We would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option at the top of the page and follow the prompts.

Enjoy !

PS Here’s a video from Sandy, one of the co-founders of KAS.

"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.
