Happy Birthday wishes coming your way from over here in WA.
Mandi I live in NZ. I think the price goes up to NZ and the dollar exchange would bring the price up from here. Thanks for the offer though !
Welcome to Knit A Square Mandi, from the middle of Canada! Please feel free to visit Discussions or join Groups to talk about things or go to Photos to see what some members are up to. Talk about yarn artistry! It’s a very positive group and it all goes to help the poorest of the poor, AIDS/HIV orphans who are parentless and being cared for by many good and kind folk in often desperate surroundings. Our crocheted, knitted and sewn items can help give a child hope, warmth and a smile. Glad you’re with us!
HI Mandi, wonderful that you have already started a group ! Visiting the aged centre will be a great way to engage some very talented people as a lot of the women are probably expert knitters.
Love your daughter's comment that you are on a mission to warm the world :-)
Thank you so much.
Well done Mandi, sometimes the only way is through it! Take care though. Pam
Thanks Mandi, but do rest your hands, we don't want you getting RSI the first time you start creating for KAS! Please do post pics on the Photo tab, when you do get going.
Welcome to KAS Mandi and warm greetings from South Africa :)
Hello Mandi, 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.
When you are ready to send your parcel, visit both these sites for important information. Click Here for tips and here for postage rates.
Once you have sent your parcel you can check the squares lists. Every month, we list the squares, beanies and tops that have arrived in South Africa. To find the ‘Squares lists’ please click the ‘Discussions’ tab [see tabs above] then on “Tallies/Item Count” for an up-to-date listing. We also have a ‘Drive to Fill Ronda’s KASvan’ with squares and would appreciate if you would add to this challenge.
We have a challenge for each month. This is a fun way to try new colours, ideas or patterns revolving around the theme. 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 is just finishing a successful Christmas challenge. The July challenge is ‘Africa’ and it will be listed on the main page. Hope to have you join us !
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 month. Those of us who use sea-mail 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 a blanket is created with 35 squares sent by people from around the world, squares are needed all the time.
Welcome Mandi from the UK. You can also catch-up with events and news through our monthly news bulletin KasSnippets : http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/categories/kas-snippets/listForCategory This will provide a taster of what happens during a KAS month!
We also have two new videos which are work checking out :
Glad you enjoy the JBay thread, they really are breaking ground there.
Your support will truly make a difference to the quality of the lives of the children!
