Monique's Miter Square 1

This was done on 7.5mm needles using double- stranded yarn. I stopped when I had 24 stitches on each side of the marker and it came out to 8".

KNIT-A-SQUARE SONG !!

THE BUCCLEUCH PRIMARY SCHOOL BLANKET DRIVE

At the end of May, Wendy and I were invited to Buccleuch Primary School to accept more than 80 blankets that the children had knitted as part of their English curriculum.  The timing was perfect – just ahead of mid-winter and the blankets were distributed via 67 blankets for Nelson Mandela within a few weeks of being collected.

The children at Buccleuch Primary School knitting blankets for those less fortunate than themselves.

The children were very excited to show off their beautiful creations and posed with their blankets for us.  We explained to them how KAS works and they seemed interested and happy that their blankets would bless and benefit children of their own age, living in very different circumstances.

Some of the many blankets we collected.

It is wonderful to see a renewed interest in knitting and crocheting especially amongst the youth and we have been taken aback by the particular interest in the craft by the boys.  This little boy crocheted this beautiful blanket himself and was so proud of what he had achieved.
