Brianna, I am going offline now, but I saw you left a comment asking if anyone loom knits. I do, so do contact me by email if you still want to.

Re:  Baby from China.  WOW!!!  That's wonderful.  Congratulations for your mom.  You should post pictures.

Hello, Brianna.  I can understand your smiling while making your squares.  It does feel good to be able to do something for someone so much in need ... especially vulnerable children!  Good luck and I'm really looking forward to seeing pictures of your creations.

Welcome, Brianna, from suburban Philadelphia. So glad you've joined us. Your first square looks wonderful...straight and neat. Good for you!

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

Hello Brianna, 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.

Looking for patterns?  Check the KAS Pattern Book for garments and squares for the children.  We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old. 

Every month, we list the squares, beanies and tops that have arrived in South Africa. To find the ‘Squares lists’ please click the Forum tab [in the bar above] then on “Tallies/Item Count” for an up-to-date listing.  We also have a ‘Drive to Fill Ronda’s KASvan’ with squares. 

Click Here for a few tips for sending your parcel. Postal information is here.

We have a challenge for each month.  This is a fun way to try new colours, ideas or patterns revolving around the theme. If you wish, you may create something new and could be making a plain square using a new colour, a different stitch or trying a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting.  An 8”/20cm square is the perfect size for experimenting.

This month we are celebrating Christmas !  Yes, it is a ‘bit’ early but Ronda would like time to prepare the blankets before the holiday season arrives.  We will be making squares with a festive theme: Christmas trees, reindeer, bells for example.  We also need many squares in reds, greens and whites to compliment the fancy squares. We would love to see your creations.  Click here to join in the holiday spirit :-)

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 challenge month.  Many of us use sea-mail and find parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive. Whenever your parcel arrives, know it will be appreciated and 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 different squares to make one blanket, squares are needed all the time.

We would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option at the top of the page and follow the prompts.

Enjoy !

my first square!

Posted on June 10, 2013 at 7:00am 2 Comments

this is my first square I'm so happy I can't stop smiling. it's so cool to think that soon a kid in Africa will be receiving this square along with many other squares as a blanket. I wonder if they will wonder what the makers of their gift are like.

"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.
