Thank you for the info and encouragement Ann.  Don't get too smug when you are sitting by the lake enjoying the summer sunshine and you hear it is raining in Vancouver.

Christine, I am in southern Ontario so I listen to the weather reports from Vancouver with envy.

In answer to your question, yes - just use the same Knitted Squares label as always.

The vest you made is gorgeous!!  I am sure the size will be fine.

I love the blue scarf idea and will be popping out later to pick up my yarn!  I assume we still mark our packages as 'squares' to avoid duty?

I knitted a vest, but at 24 inches long and 17 inches wide, it looks very big.  I do hope someone can use it.

Cheers, from a surprisingly mild Vancouver.  I am sure we will have to pay somehow for the pleasant weather we have had this winter!

This is a really important project for KAS and will benefit the cold school children.

Here's the Link to the Blue Scarf Project discussion. You will find all the details about scarf requirements and WHY we are doing this in the introduction


Pam is doing a "Totaliser" in the intro, so once a month when we hear from Ronda how many scarves have arrived, Pam will update it For every 10 scarves she will use a scarf symbol. Every time we reach 50, she will post a school bus.

The current number of scarves to arrive is 44 - we are close to getting our first bus!

The benefit KAS receives in having their mail picked up and delivered to the offices by the pharmaceutical company and in addition the monetary help in rent money are both real advantages for KAS. In return, we need to get on board and support KAS by making and donating the navy scarves

Please post photos of your scarves in the discussion and in Photos - we have an album started

What new rules for Canada are you referring to Arlene?

Some regions here in France have been snowed under. However where we live it's barely freezind at night and around 4° in the day. We have some very light snowfalls, but the snow melts almost right away. We've been warned that much colder weather is coming. Our biggest problem is that our region is one of the worst hit with a flu epidemic. Apparently it's very nasty and not like last year's so the flu jabs are not very helpful.

You're right, Beth!  Here in NS we started our day with beautiful blue skies.  Then the clouds moved in.  We're expecting snow ...then freezing rain ... then rain ... then freezing rain ... then snow.  Feels like a roller coaster ride!

Yesterday our forecasters announced a winter storm watch ... then before I went to bed it had been cancelled and instead they gave us a rainfall warning.  This morning I woke up to find the winter storm warning was back, as well as our rainfall warning.  Now I've just heard they've added a flash freeze warning.  Um ... have I forgotten anything?   Oh what fun it is to ... LOL

However, as my son has been telling me (he's in Alberta, Beth), "Mom, it IS winter!!"  You're right, Kevin, it is DEFINITELY winter!!!

Comment by Beth on February 3, 2015 at 4:49am

After some nice warm weather we have gone back into the deep freeze here in Alberta.  Looks like its pretty much the same for most of Canada today - a good time for making KAS squares - stay warm my fellow Canucks :)

Comment by Linda Maltby on January 8, 2015 at 2:16pm

Thanks Valerie !   Glad you're feeling better.  Many people over here have the cold/flu and it knocks the stuffing out of them !!

C-o-l-d is the only word for the temperature.  Perfect weather to stay indoors and crochet :-)

Arlene, I'm not sure what the new postal rules are that have you concerned. Would you tell us more ?  

Comment by Valerie Zalewski on January 8, 2015 at 11:19am

Hello everyone. Now that I'm finally back to feeling human again I just want to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I  hope it will be healthy, happy and prosperous for everyone.

We've been hearing here about the terrible cold spell that you're having. I hope it doesn't last too long or cause too much damage.
