Hi Val! Thanks so much for the invitation. I won't be able to make it this month, but it would be nice to join you in the new year -- where in Kamloops do you live? Do you always meet on Mondays once a month?

Welcome to KAS, dear Sis.

I hope you enjoy knitting for and being part of, this wonderful KAS community, as much as I do.  xx

Hello Val.  I also like to think of your dear sister Bev as a good friend :)  I'm way over here in Nova Scotia and would like to send you a very warm welcome to Knit-a-Square.

Perhaps you already know your way around the Forum, but just in case you haven't found everything, this is where we receive information from Ronda and the volunteers in South Africa (South Africa Reports),  have our questions answered (Helpful Hints), find patterns (Kas Pattern Book)  share photos (Photo tab), conversation, and an occasional good laugh (Share a Yarn) with other Forum members.  There are many ongoing discussions (DiscussionsCategories) for you to follow and/or join, and other specific groups (Groups) that may interest you.  Just browse through the tabs at the top of the page, and I’m sure you’ll find whatever information you need.

The KAS Pattern Book includes patterns for garments that have been designed by KAS with the specific needs of the children in mind.  We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years, as this age group is in need of warm garments and blankets.

Our main focus is 8” x 8” (20 cm x 20 cm) squares for blankets.  It doesn’t matter if they are simple knitted or crocheted squares (Plain Janes, we love to call them) or fancy squares.  What does matter is that they measure 8” x 8” (20 cm x 20 cm) and that they are warm.  Plain Janes are the backbone of KAS. They provide the framework for a few fancy squares to create individuality in a blanket.  Since it takes 35 squares to make one blanket, squares are always needed.

Here is the link to our very own video (on the off chance that Bev didn't show it to you :) 

Every square you send will be received in South Africa, stitched into a blanket by the wonderful volunteers there, and lovingly wrapped around the shoulders of a vulnerable or needy child, giving him or her warmth and the assurance that someone cares.

Each month we have a different theme/challenge.  These are for fun and inspiration, and you are welcome to join in any or all of them.  You will find information regarding all of these (including the current ones) under the DiscussionsCategories tab at the top.

Regarding postage, many of us use sea-mail and find that parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive in South Africa.  Since parcels are arriving all the time, this is perfectly okay and we encourage you to use the least expensive way to send.  Also, it is extremely important that it is clearly marked on our packages “Knitted Squares for Charity Only – No Commercial Value”. 

So please sit back, relax, put your feet up, grab your yarn and hook/needles and enjoy.  You are among a very large circle of friends.

Welcome to the forum Val ! Nice to see another Canadian :-)

Are you 'helping' Bev deplete her stash ?? Your sister is a great supporter and Mod and I count her as a friend.   Linda
