I have a book of 200 crochet blocks and lots of old crochet books which I dip into. Also members of the forum post pictures which also gives me ideas. I have a low boredom threshold so squares are great for me. Glad you joined, your work is lovely

Hi Susan.

Sorry to hear you have Crohn's Disease. I have just been reading about it on google.

Your knitting skills are superb and the articles you have made, so beautiful.

Best wishes and take care. Bev.  :))

Welcome to a wonderful, supportive forum Susan! I live in hot and humid Georgia (at least right now it is, lol!). Your work is incredible! I've really enjoyed seeing your sweaters and I've put a photo of one of them onto our Facebook page!
By the way, I love ALL things Scotland! I'm so thrilled you have joined us! Scotland is on my bucket list of places to see!!

Hi Susan.

Yes, all yarns whether they be acrylic, wool or a blend of the two are perfectly acceptable. The colours you have mentioned are going to make lovely squares and they will be warm and snuggly, too.

Happy knitting.  :))

Hello Susan, 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.  As the name implies, we focus on sending 8” x 8”(20 cm x 20 cm) squares to be made into blankets to provide comfort to the many children in need.

You might be interested in joining the UK group.  Go to the 'Groups' [see tab above] and scroll to the UK group.  There are quite a few members from Scotland...might be one in your area !

Enjoy :-)

Hi Susan.

Welcome to KAS from over here in wet and windy Western Australia.  :))

Making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and 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. The basic square being a garter stitch/single colour or striped square or I think it is single or double crochet  if your preference is for crochet. By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of other patterns provided by our fellow KASers.  

If you click on the groups tab at the top of the page you will find all the different groups and you are free to join as many as you would like.  :))

Please check out the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page as this may answer many initial questions you may have and will help you get started. Any other questions...just ask...we love to help.  :))

If you'd like to see what other KASers have been making please click on the photo tab at the top of the page....and feel free to add photos of your own work...we would love to see them. Just click on 'add photos' and follow the prompts. Anything you care to make and send will be so appreciated by Ronda and the team and the children of South Africa.

If you want to see the most active discussions at present, you may like to click on the 'main page' tab and they are listed in the centre of that page...just pick one and click on it. It is a large website, but with so much fun and info.

We also have a theme for every month that you might like to view and participate in, but there is absolutely no pressure to do so. The theme for July can be found here:

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"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.
