Hi Bev,

Thanks for getting in touch.

I started knitting for KAS last year. I sent 2 parcels of hats in January and I was wondering if they were received?

How can I track this please. If they were not received did I do something wrong with the posting. I did follow the instructions to the letter!!

I am now in the process of a knitting marathon. My friends have been very generous with their donations of wool....and charity shops.

Thanks Donna

Thanks Bev,

I find it amazing how many toys I find in Norfolk. Here in Leicestershire I hardly find one that is in such good condition. Hope you have a lovely holiday and plenty of retail therapy. More wool:))

Thank you for welcoming an intruder who doesn't know anything about knitting. I joined you to teach you all French and to keep an eye on Valerie and control the amount of skeins of yarn that have invaded the house. Democracy has its limits.m

Hey Bev,

What size hook did you use on Miss Olivia and what were the final dimensions?

Stay warm down under and we will try to stay cool.

Me again.  I was wondering what is the best type of packaging to use to mail the squares (e.g. padded envelope)?

Hi Bev

I think I am on the right track.  I’ve sent the picture by email to the forum as I am not sure how to attach it here.  They are made up of leftover yarn (double thickness).   I am anxious to mail out my first batch!

Morning Bev

Thanks for the 'welcoming' email.  I live fairly close to the drop-off point in Randburg so will hand deliver the squares.  Only just discovered theKAS 'themes' but have a few already knitted that would fit .. I'll get stuck in to reach the 35 square target! :)  I must admit I am having a great deal of fun and pleasure knitting these squares.

They are 8 inch squares.  The patterns just don’t fit your theme.  Thanks for all the info!

Hi Bev

Thank you very much for your email.  I just want to make sure you accept any squares as I have already made quite a few before receiving this email.  I was also wondering how many squares would be best to mail at one time.

Thanks Bev, Totally agree on the hippo. He was the one who jumped into my arms first.:))

Thanks Bev, These cute little toys do seem to have away of jumping out at me and saying please take me home:)) I love finding them.

HI Bev, Thank you for the warm welcome, and all of the information.  

Oh yes, I have discovered the PJ pattern.  It is a wonderfully easy pattern for those of us who are not experienced with crochet.  It looks nice and works up quickly.  It provides a little break from knitting.

Some Gorgeous squares Bev. I will definitely keep a look out for your parcels. Especially love the 6 butterflies and really all the themed ones. Lucky children who get blankets wi5 your squares!!

Thank you for your warm welcome to the forum Bev. It is a joy to open the parcels and be inspired by what we find to join together into gorgeous blankets. I sew together about 50 blankets/year and love every one. None of which would be possible without the kind and generous contributions of lovely ladies like you!

many blessings on you and your family

One Love

I did get the link, and I've been reading over it to make sure I fill out the customs form properly.  I think I've got a few more squares to make to meet the 35 per afghan, but then there will be 3 afghans' worth.  I'm on spring break this week, so I'm hoping I can get them finished and shipped off this week!

At 12:48pm on March 25, 2018, Hannah Cross said…

I've been working hard at making bunches of squares for multiple afghans, but I can't find the page that told me how many are used per afghan.  Do you know?  I'd like to group them and send them that way...

Bev - thank you for your response to my message.  My more recent squares are meeting the 8" "requirement".  This is such a great way to make a difference.  I'm happy to be part of it.  Nancy
