of this amazing continent.......

 
   
  
the bounty of its amazing wildlife.......
  
its culture.......
 
and 'Father of the Nation' (South Africa)......

Here are some beautiful squares from our members, to provide you with a little inspiration........

or a flag or two of the many nations that make up Africa.
                
If you're feeling really energetic, perhaps you will achieve a whole blanket's worth of squares.  :))
   
and remember, it's not too late to include toys for the children
  
And if you're still not sure where to begin, these tunes will get those needles, hooks and looms working, I'm sure.....
 
Please sit with me under Chris's umbrella as we make some LOVE-LY squares to CELEBRATE AFRICA!
Lots of squares, blankets, hand warmers, hats and toys.
Our love and care in every stitch.
Volume...... so there are always enough items for every needy child.
Every child receiving our knitted and crocheted items will know that they are valued and loved.

Couldn't leave these on the op shop shelf could I

Oh Sue...they are all DELIGHTFUL, but must admit to having a few faves......the colourful giraffe, that gorgeous, happy hippo and that huge, huggable gorilla.  :))

Oh my goodness Susanne, these fellows look very soft and cuddly ... just waiting for a child to love them ... xo

Some new owners will love these two. 

First try with this pattern

All toys are beautiful but your elephant is the best one!

Elephants are social animals, so my friend Evan here would like to join the herd, please.And if anyone can tell me how to crochet tusks, I'll be very grateful!

Lesley, your Evan is simply adorable!  So cute, in fact, that I didn’t even notice he doesn't have tusks!!  Or perhaps it was his beautiful color that took my attention from his "tusklessness" ... hahaha  

Lesley, you may want to try crochet shapes used in amigurumi. This site describes how to make cones.

Wow! Nice work and the yarn looks fuzzy soft. 

Evan is a baby elephant  whose tusks haven't grown yet. He is very cute!! LOVE his colours.  :))
