hello all my lovely KAS friends, we had another late start again this year but its time to get this tally rolling (I imagine that some of you have been patiently waiting, wondering, 'where is that tally?" for a while.
by now, many of you know the drill - when its time for you to add your items, take a look at the most recent reply and add your items to that total, then post the new total in your comment. if you need help, then tell us what you made and how many, and somebody will add them in for you.
we also have a tally over in ravelry going as well, and if you are also a ravelry KAS member then please do not add your items to both tallies as it will throw off our results.
now lets get this going.
last years numbers (slightly over twice as many squares as the year before, well done everyone!)
15,149 squares (about 631 blankets, on average)
907 hats
55 KAS Cuddles
25 blankets
23 gloves
117 Go Overs
12 Jumpers
14 baby items
3 scarves
20 knitted teddies/toys
1 slippers
17 slip-overs
ready, set, go!

Thank you so much for doing this Kyla. Just thought everyone might like to know the total tallies since day dot - this is from the total community many of whom are outside of the forum. That is from January 17 2009 - December 24 2010
Squares: 166,537
Hats: 7388.
Vests: 986
Jumpers: 4006
The total goals for 2011 will be 140,000 squares, 5000 hats, and 1500 jumpers and vests/other garments.
If the forum members were to climb to 2,500 then what percentage of those tallies do you think we could set a challenge to? 20%? Say 28,000 squares, 1000 hats, and 300 jumpers and vests? Any thoughts on this?
We don't have a tally for toys, but will start one this year.
Hi Sandy!
Is there anything we're risk sending too many of? I remember that at one point there was a surplus of hats...
We love wishlists! Just write an updated one up for us, and you'll see we'll get into action!

KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017. If Ronda’s wishes come true, in 2018 even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world.
