JINGLE BELLS

Squares are made and  sent to KAS from all over the world. When they arrive, they must be sorted, packed into bundles of 35. Then they are given to the Gogo groups and KAS volunteers to be made into beautiful blankets. They are returned to the KAS workshop and finally travel in the KASmobile to be distributed to the children who need them.

This is why we are jingling our bells early in the year. We want our Christmas blankets to be ready in plenty of time for Christmas


Give free rein to your creative talents. You can make PJ’s, striped or appliqued squares.

Trim the tree!Father Christmas and his elves,

Make this Christmas the best yet for KAS’s 10th anniversary.

AND of course all toys are welcome to share the fun.

Beautiful, Patricia!  Lovely colors and such perfect work.  xo

A pretty square, I love it!

SOOO pretty!    You have such great skills!

Here's a PJ for Christmas:

This is lovely, Valerie.  What do you all that stitch?

It's c2c, Anne. Very easy once you get the hang of it.

I love this one, Valerie!  A beautiful Christmas green.  I'm wondering about the stitch, too.  I thought it was C2C but now I'm not sure ... xo

The yarn makes a big difference in the look. I've done lots of c2c in variegated yarn, but that masks the effect of the blocks a little. In plain colour, the blocks stand out much more clearly.

I find the direction you look at C2C and also the way the light shines on it can make it look very different. A truly fascinating stitch, but the result is always gorgeous.

 A gorgeous green and lovely pattern :))

A very pretty green, Valerie....this is one of my fave stitches, creates an interesting texture.  :))

A beautiful and classic square.   I love this shade of green.
