Hi Janette...and welcome to KAS from over on the west side of Oz.
When you have had a chance to look at the KAS site, you may like to join our Aussie/New Zealand group called "Downunder and Land of the long white cloud." You just click on 'groups' at the top of the page. We have discussions of topics particular to our area. E.g. Postage costs, needle sizes...just to name a couple.You are, of course, welcome to join more than one group.
We hope you will enjoy being part of this friendly, supportive community of knitters/crocheters. :-)
If you appreciate a “challenge”, you might like to join the Monthly challenge. This is a fun way to try new ideas. Every month, a theme is chosen to challenge the forum members to create something new and different......it could be a new colour, a different stitch or a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting. An 8” square is the perfect size for experimenting.
This month’s challenge is What a Beautiful World . Have a look at what some of us have made and then join us in making a square or two that express your idea of what makes this a beautiful world.
Sometimes making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still help the children. Plain Jane squares, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of KAS. They are always needed.
Whatever you decide, we would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option at the top of the page, click “Add” and follow the prompts.
"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.
