It does amaze us Toby when you consider just how poverty stricken their lives are, yet, they remain upbeat, smiling and positive. Whilst in the western world, many have lost that 'attitude of gratitude'. Ronda says when the blankets are handed out she has never seen the children swap blankets or toys - they are all so pleased for each other!

Hi Toby,

I'm so glad it's proving useful. I love the squares for trying new stitches too. It gives us a chance to practice without getting in too deep!

Hi Toby, I have left you an answer on the help discussion. Hope it is of some use. You are welcome to ask me anything anytime. Good luck.

Hi Toby. Thank you for your comment. I haven't blocked them. I sent off about 40 squares in May for the very first time. They hadn't been blocked and I feel really bad about it when I see other people's work, so nicely blocked and finished!! I've another 30 ready (those on the line), but I'm waiting to send them until I finish a go-over that I started recently. After that I think I'll try either a hat or some Santa shoes. I find the squares really useful for waiting room activities. Most of my squares are crocheted, so I can carry them anywhere easily. Valerie xxx

Hi Toby!

I was just looking through some of the comments on this thread and noticed yours regarding hats. I have attached the Samaritans Purse stretchy hat pattern for you - it's a great pattern as the hat grows with the child, and is also quite quick to make! if you use the 'thumb cast on' method you won't get a tight band across the bottom so it's even stretchier. If you can't open the attachment let me know and I will try another way. So lovely to have you on board Kas - it really is wonderful! Kathy :o)

Welcome, Toby, and warm wishes from suburban Philadelphia. I visited Knoxville years ago for the World's Fair and drove through your lovely state on my way to California! So glad you joined us!

Hello Toby, so glad you have joined our world-wide family of knitters and crocheters.

I see you have already joined the US group.  They are quite active and have adopted 3 creches.  Yard sales are definitely a good place to find yarn. The expensive yarn would be a great find and how nice of the seller to donate more yarn !

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.  http://forum.knit-a-square.com

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.

And as always, 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.

Enjoy !
