Hi Bev!
We started a knitting ministry in our local nursing home in July. We have been busy making prayer shawls and squares. We are excited to package up our first box.

Wow ..thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my work.  I really enjoy knitting for the children and being a bit creative at the same time.  The toys were such fun to make I just wish I had ten hands so I could make one for all of the children!  I like to paint so I love making colour combinations especially in the go overs which I find really cheerful and because I knit them with two yarns together they are warm and snuggly. x

I you are knitting for Samaritan's Purse (and I do) there are a number of patterns on the web site and this type of beanie hat is included.  I will check it out and let you know the link.

Hi Bev.  If you've got a good slippers pattern just pop it into the "Patterns" link above.  It will open into four sections when you put your cursor onto it and then just click on the garments section to go into that section and then enter a new discussion in there for your socks.  Hope that helps!

luv, Jeanne :)

Thank you for your lovely comments on my work.  I find it a joy to do and just see those beautiful little faces and this spurs me on.  Im not sure what age my go over is for but i will probably knit bigger and smaller ones in future.  I just followed the pattern i found on the site and added my own design. This is the first batch of knitting I have done for square circle so I am not sure if my sizings are correct.  Hopefully I can get some feedback if I am doing ok. Oh well the needles are calling! kathryn

Hello Beverley Joy

Thanks for your welcome.  That's one hell of a coincidence, you being a Perks too.  I've only been a Perks since I married 47 years ago.  I see you live in Australia now, but it seems that almost all the Perks's originated in the Shropshire/Worcestershire area of England.

Look forward to getting more into the site when the school holidays are over in September.

Hello again!

The basic pattern I have used is the 'square vest' off the KAS site, I've just changed it around a bit with different stitches, thicker wool, thicker needles, and longer length to make them bigger.  Like you, I have pieces I have worked on for other charities that they no longer want, so I have tried to use them for KAS.  I found a few small blanket squares when clearing my late mum-in-laws house and crocheted 4 together to make good sized squares for KAS (a bit bigger than they wanted but I am sure they will use them for something!).  Good idea to make up the vests you already have, makes space in your work basket for more wool!! have funx

Hi Beverley

Well, I knitted mine all in one so when I got to the 'neck part' knitted 9, cast off 26, knitted 9, next row knitted 9, cast on 26, knitted 9 and off I went again! so you could perhaps work out the proportions/ratios from that. Neck does need to be quite spacious so differnt size heads can pop in and out! hope this help? If I'd not posted it off I could have measured it! Good luckx

Thank you so much for the very kind comments under my Grace Vest photo. I am hoping that the yarn is good enough for the purpose - it's only acrylic and although soft is a bit  'stiff '.It's pretty but I hope it's warm enough.

I've just noticed that it's your birthday today so I hope you will have/did have a lovely day (bit confused by time diffferences so I'm hoping that your birthday isn't already over.) Many happy returns anyway.
