Thanks Anne for bringing this to our attention.  We don't want Ronda paying for expensive courier charges !

Comment by Anne Powell yesterday

The Postal Strike is not yet resolved and all of us have squares piling up, but please do not give in to the temptation to send them by a courier service! A few parcels have arrived this way, and it is causing big problems for Ronda.

Thanks for the tip on the Helpful Hints tab, Anne. I'll see if I can get a photo on soon.

It is so nice to have new members to chat with on the CC.  As Anne said, please check out the Helpful HInts....I'm still learning things after 5+ years !

For those of us experiencing snow or rain, maybe we can persuade Barb to bottle some of that warm sunshine and bring it back in her suitcase :-)

Thank you for all the welcomes! Being a newbie (both knitting & KAS) I am still working on how to nagivate this website, Forum etc. I've completed 6 squares and am amazed at the beautiful patterns that others have done! Let's hope we can start mailing these squares to the children of S. A. again soon.

Welcome to the group Cheryl. Don't worry about not having a lot of experience. KAS members have such great ideas and are so willing to share and to help the more inexperienced to progress. I'm doing things in crochet now theat I never imagined I'd be able to do when I joined over 2 years ago....and I'm certainly not finished learning yet! One of the nicest moments is when you see your name for the very first time on the Monthly Sqares List.

Oh, Linda! I think you can safely say that Winter has arrived where you are. Here it's very wet at the moment, after a spell of lovely warm weather over a couple of weeks (20°C).The temperatures are still not too bad , although they've dropped quite a bit. 15°C for mid-October is really warm. Even the mornings are around 7°C. We lit our first fire 2 days ago and haven't repeated the procedure as we were too HOT!! I'd like it to be a little coder so that people will buy our hats and mittens at the Christmas Markets. We really need money to get all our goodies sent off when the strike ends. I have 2 lovely boxes of soft toys that I was hoping would get there for Christmas.
