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.


Hang the decorations

Trim the tree!Father Christmas and his elves,

Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer,

polar bears

and penguins, they can all come to the Christmas party. There’s room for everyone.

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

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

The PoM this month is the Alphabet crochet square.

Instructions and graphs can  be found in the KAS pattern book. 

Here is an "N" for NOEL to start you off.

Beautiful squares, Linda. The four grannies are lovely. The patterns are really effective

The PJs will be a great asset for making the blankets.

BEAUTIFUL pjs...much needed for the Chrissy blankets.  :))

LOVE your squares, Linda. The wheel spoke square is a dazzler!!!!!!

Just gorgeous, Linda.   The wheel spoke squares are always a winner -- texture, shape, color.  Perfect.

I knit one of these teddies and the 5 mice then passed them to my Mum to sew up and stuff for me.   She said if I left her some wool and the teddy pattern that she'd have a little bit knit.......Didn't she do well??!!

WOWZA!  What a great collection.  I love the little neckties on the teddies.   Each one is individual and so huggable.   And a rainbow of huggable mice, too.   Great job team.

Your mum is a champion, Karen. Those teddies are great. I love your mice too.

You and your Mum.....a great team, Karen.  :)) Your mice are soooo cute!!

So many wonderful squares and toys have been added since I last posted on the forum. I love them all.

10 Christmas Squares.

I have a box of knitted hearts left over from my craft fair days which I don't get time to do any more. Here are some of the Xmas coloured ones with some sparkly snowflakes. I hope to use some more for next month's theme.

Lovely, lovely heart squares, Marion....LOVING the snowflakes.  :))

How perfect. They make really beautiful squares.

OH, Marion, you have done it again!   You are the applique Queen, for sure, and double sure.   Sparkly snowflakes, hearts, beautiful background squares with complimentary borders.   You've got it all, and then some.
