Hi Sue,
This part of the world is certainly getting its fair share of disasters lately. The Christchurch earthquake, Queensland floods, the terrible Victorian bush fires and now fire again, this time in Tasmania.
Yes, KAS is a wonderful idea. Like you, I am a new member, in fact, I only discovered charity knitting about six months ago with the group Knit4Charity. I had no idea that there was such a need for knitted and crochet items. All these wonderful women who make it work so well and who are using the Internet for such a good purpose. Admiration! Gill

Hi Sue

Hi Sue, thanks for the info about thermal vests at Big W. You are obviously a very savvy shopper to spot thermals at this time of year. Hard to imagine the cold these days now that we are getting our hot summer weather. I expect you benefit from the sea breeze at Coffs as we do here in sunny Stockton. Gill

Welcome to KAS Sue and warm greetings from South Africa :)

Hello Sue, 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.

You might like 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.

January’s challenge is Ronda's Winter Drive-Celebrating the Year of the Older Child.  It is so important that the children have warm clothing when the South African winter starts arriving in March/April. (Winter officially starts in June.)  We are focusing on children aged 4-9 years old. Using patterns from the KasPattern Book  which are designed for the older child, will ensure you send exactly what the children need to keep them the warmest.

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 8-10 weeks to arrive. Thus if you mail a parcel by the end of January it will reach Ronda and the volunteers at the beginning of their fall/winter. But, whenever your parcel arrives, know 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.

Whatever you decide, we would love to see photos of your work.

Enjoy !

1. Make a donation whenever you are able.

2. Sign up for an ongoing monthly donation (subscription).

"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.
