Thanks Jill. There are a few more waiting to be edged.

Jill your parcel arrived on Tuesday. Here is the one of the 3 blanket packs you sent. As soon as the others are finished I’ll post them. Do you do Facebook as I post all the blankets I take into KAS for the week. I’ve only come across one of your parcels previously, about 2 years ago I remember the beautifully woven squares. Unfortunately we don’t know who opens which parcel so I’m sure that I have missed a lot of yours. Thank you for your super squares and support over the years.

Hi Twinge, I have just received a number of photos from Ronda, including one of a request from you (I think) to post pictures of finished blankets made by K2Togs on the Blanket Room page. I can certainly do that if I have them but nothing this week is labelled and Ronda is now away for a week. I will be posting any blanket pictures over the next few days but I won't be able to credit any of them as I haven't information. Other photos of sacks etc arriving will be posted under Sorted in Africa so your ladies may need to look at both threads. I do hope I'm talking to the right person, Best wishes, Christine

Welcome to KAS, Twinge, from across the Pond in Canada. I agree, I hate to think of the AIDS orphans feeling forgotten or cold too.  I find KAS such a rewarding cause to be involved in and I hope you enjoy it too.  Do check out the New Member Guide which is found by clicking "Main Page" in the header above.  To reach the Discussions just click Forum above and if you click on Photos above, you will see items that are heading to Africa, in all colors and shapes, plus those that have arrived there. If you click on Groups, above, you can join the friendly UK group or any groups you wish, to chat with.  Any questions just PM me. :)  So, welcome to Knit A Square! Blankets and hats and sweaters direct from our hands to their hearts, a win-win.  And now we’re helping out over in Zimbabwe too and they need everything over there.  I just love making a real difference in a child’s life.  So welcome aboard!

This item will allow Knit-a-Square to pay our wonderful co-team workers – the Gogos (grandmothers) – to sew the squares received from across the globe into blankets for the children. $5 US will pay for 4 blankets to be stitched together.
