Dear Bev, thank you for your messages.

Funny but I am exactly in the same position as Patricia Underwood (below). I've been  sending hats and squares to KAS for years, but only just joined the forum. The main reason is that I have a question: as I'm getting older, my wrists are not so great and I find it easier to knit DOUBLE, i.e. my squares are 2Dk on 51/2mm needles. They are thicker, of course but still pliable and very warm. Is that OK?

Dear Bev

Thank you so much for the lovely warm welcome but I've actually been sending my work to KAS for the last 5 years - I just hadn't got round to joining the Forum before! Now I need to work out how to add some photos ..

Hi again Bev,

Rosie LOVED making the handwarmers. We'll send as many as possible... Thanks for all the information and for writing to us.

Hi Bev,

Thank you so much for the welcome email! I joined the forum after I found your website and facebook page. My mom, Rosie, is the knitter and I was searching online for places to donate new knitted items. We are in the USA and just did a general search and your organization came up! I've also been in touch with Pam on facebook.

Rosie and I will be sending the first box with mostly hats and sweaters for children. She has the pattern now for the squares and has started making hand warmers. Next box will be all squares and hand warmers.

We want to help and are so glad to find an organization like yours that does such nice work.

Thank you for the note and all the links. I'll stay in touch!

Thank you for the tip! I've never done diagonal squares before so it will be my first. I absolutely love what you have knitted. They are gorgeous! I love the embellishments you have put on them they are so cute. Do they stay on well?

Hi Bev,

Thank you for that warm welcome, I've already been looking at your site and I am excited to get started. I don't know how much I will be able to complete as I am a slow knitter but PJ's are my forte. I am hoping to donate once every six months. Which gives me plenty of time. I do love the idea of a themed month, looking forward to seeing what is next months theme.

Thank you for all the links I look forward to getting to know this site pretty well!

Thanks for your lovely comment and help Bev, I measured the first strip on the carpet and knitted the others to match not knowing that I had stretched it when I put it down. So this time I will use the laminate kitchen floor. Who would think I was talking about knitting:)) x x

Hi Bev, thanks a lot for your warm welcome!  It has been a nice start of my day. Although my intention yesterday was finding somebody to give my already crocheted squares to, now I "wake up" that I am finally a member of an enthusiastic community. I searched for crochet/knitting for charity a time ago and found this site among others, and although I started crocheting some squares it was yesterday that I signed up in KAS looking for some member that lives close to my town here in south BC, so I can give she/them my items.

Thanks again, and enjoy this wonderful Summer ... oops! sorry, Australia is below the Ecuator  :)   Greetings,

Thanks Bev,

My favourites are also Big Ted & Pink Rabbit. Great minds think alike:))

Thanks Bev,

My favourites are bunny, Donald Duck and far right teddy. Kathy couldn't resist making him a scarf.

Thanks for my Birthday Wishes Bev, Kathy was really surprised how quick they came. Hope yours arrives soon x x

Hi Bev,

Thank you so much for the warm welcome. 

I'm happy I found you and can't wait to start knitting the PJs. I'll try to do my best.

Thanks Bev,

Holiday knitting is great. Has two bonuses.. Relaxing and helping keep children warm & cosy. The variegated in these hats are 25g balls of a mix of plain and variegated and I love mixing and matching them. I have a large box of them still in the van so there are going to be quite a few more as well as several pairs of hand warmers:))

Morning Bev, Would like to donate and don't have Paypal so would need to send a cheque. Could you please advise who to make this out to (knit-a-square?) and where to send it. Thanks....Toodles Lorrie

Hi Bev!

Great!  I'll give Ronda a call when I'm not so busy and have a goodly amount of squares to give her.  I'm so pleased I'm doing it correctly.  As I've said, I'm not a brilliant knitter, but garter stitch squares are definitely something I can do :))

Hi Bev,

Thank you for the warm welcome!  Yes, I am very close to the Randburg centre in Johannesburg.  I would love to be able to volunteer at some stage, when I'm not so busy working.  For the moment, when I've got a batch I'll take them to Randburg and meet the ladies there.  My squares are 8"x 8" - is that OK?  What is the preferred wool to use?  Thanks again!

Hi Beverly!  Thanks for the warm welcome.  Not sure if I'm doing this right—don't know if there is a difference between leaving a comment and replying—but I'm sure I'll learn as I go along. Yes, the patchwork blankets are my own work and the Labbie is my guide dog!
