"Anneke - thank you so much for all your hard work in compiling this list. I was fairly sure my parcels had arrived in July - as I had seen blue Ikea bag parcels in the pile and seen one of my blankets from one of the parcels in a…"
"Mireille says: I honour the memory of this beautiful and generous person and send to her my thoughts of Light and my prayers.
From myself; thank you for this tribute. I've seen her name so many times when I've been…"
"Yes, Patricia. The last one in group A. I love looking at everyone's finished blankets and thinking of the children snuggling up in them! Here in Brittany, France, it is very cold tonight and I'm glad of a roaring…"
"The third one up from the bottom is one of mine. The three orange "patches" are little woven squares which I make on a 4" square "Zoom Loom". It makes a change from knitting but the little squares are…"
"Hi - the squares in this blanket were made by Annie Keller in Gloucester, UK, and sewn together with borders by me, Jill Lea, in France. Each time Annie visits from England she brings with her squares she has knitted. There…"
"Yes, Valerie - back to lockdown! Here in the north west of France, Brittany, we are very fortunate to have low figures for Covid. For my husband Chris and myself the lockdown is not too much of a problem: we have a small town…"
"Estelle - thank you for letting me know that the parcel arrived. I've another one nearly ready to send off. Please keep an eye on Athele when she opens parcels - she looks lethal with that orange-handled knife! …"
"The top blanket pictured here, with Bozica's precious toy, is one of mine. When the blankets are at home they look so small, but here, with this little girl in her rainbow beanie, the blanket looks massive. Thank you to…"
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!
"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.
