 Hello All,

Would just like to leave a quick message to say thank you to all the members that have left encouraging, kind, and helpful comments. I have really enjoyed learning something new, and feel happy about being able to help with a cause such as the KAS project, even if only in a small way. Looking forward to being able to send in more squares, and hopefully as I…

Welcome Rebecca from over in the middle of Canada.  Glad to have you with us!  I see you've already checked out Photos in the header above, but also look in on Groups or Forum to see what's up. Any questions just ask us, we're always happy to help as it all helps the South African AIDS orphans.  I love being able to make a concrete difference, one on one with children overseas.

Hello Rebecca,  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. http://forum.knit-a-square.com

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 bar above] then on “Tallies/Item Count” for an up-to-date listing.  We also have a ‘Drive to Fill Ronda’s KASvan’ with squares. 

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

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 we are celebrating Christmas !  Yes, it is a ‘bit’ early but Ronda would like time to prepare the blankets before the holiday season arrives.  We will be making squares with a festive theme: Christmas trees, reindeer, bells for example.  We also need many squares in reds, greens and whites to compliment the fancy squares. We would love to see your creations.  Click here to join in the holiday spirit :-)

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 different 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 !

"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."
