Square Circle Forum

I have been knitting squares as a way of helping me get my co-ordination sorted and for relaxation because I am recovering from illness. I see that your squares need to be 8" x 8" but my squares have been knitted 8" x 6". I hope that when I send the 10 of them, they will be able to be used. South Africa is very dear to my heart and to be able to help in this way for the children will help me further recover. It is an amazing project that is being done. God bless everybody involved.

Hi Susan.

Thank you for making squares for K-A-S and the children. We have some very innovative volunteers over there, who will no doubt either extend them or find a blanket for them to fit into. Our Ronda, who 'runs the ship', ensures nothing is ever wasted and I know she has two or three ladies who 'specialise' in making different sized ones fit.  :)) 

Here is a discussion started by a member in South Africa, who regularly visits the KAS HQ and shares her experiences with us and if you scroll through to the last couple of pages, you will see her last 'report' is of meeting a lovely volunteer called Vivienne who helps make the squares fit. Ronda has also mentioned, previously, (unfortunately I can't remember where) that they have an 'unsquare' box where they put those that aren't 8x8 and then this lady takes them all and fits them together like a jigsaw

Thank you, again, for your squares and we wish you a speedy recovery. xo

Hello zbev

That is so lovely to hear. Like you said, such an innovative lady being able to make the different squares fit. I appreciated you letting me know. I will look at the discussion. The 'unsquare' box sounds very good.

I will be sending my 10 squares very soon. I am now having a go at 8 x 8 to see how long they take me to do.

Bless you

Hi Susan.

Good luck with your 8 x 8 squares.

I see in my other message to you yesterday (welcome message) that the end of it was cut off, so thought I would add it here. Not sure if it was because I had made the message too long and Ning, our provider had chopped it off, or something in my tech skills, which can be a bit haphazard....lol. So here it is....just thought you may enjoy seeing our list of monthly themes.

F.Y.I here is our 2017 themes list....these themes are just for fun and there is no pressure to join in. ANY squares you would like to make are most welcome and much appreciated. :))
