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.

Any tips for mailing from Canada with the new postal methods and rules?

A fun song and definitely very Canadian !  There is a delight Canadian book called 'A Porcupine in a Pine Tree' , for the 5-8 year old child...if anyone still needs a present for someone :-)

Hello fellow Canadians.  I got this from a friend and thought it was rather cute.  Not my type of Christmas song, but cute nonetheless :)

 It doesn’t commit you to anything but it may just win funds that Knit for Life can and will donate to KAS. We have until the end of December to vote.

Elaine Jones and Pam Johnson [UK]  are trying to win £7,000[$12,600] from the Paypal Giving Fund for Knit for Life but they need our help. If you have an Ebay account – or would be willing to register for one – go to: :http://www.ebay.co.uk/egw/ebay-for-charity/charity-profile/?NP_ID=6...

Click on the “Save as Favourite” button then follow the onscreen instructions, and that’s it.

Yes, it will be good to clear out the stacks of squares we've all collected.  The SA team will be very busy for quite a while :-)

Thanks to the dedication of the volunteers, the total of 18,684 squares is the second highest for 2014.   This is a fantastic feat considering the last two Thursdays of December were holidays [Christmas and New Year’s Day] 

The S.A. team will not receive parcels in the order sent and is still attempting to clear the backlog. Please be patient and watch the Squares Lists for your name. 

If your parcel is not on this list, it will be on the next one or even the one after that !

The December 2014 Squares List is available on www.knit-a-square.com “Received Squares”

Graphs for Squares, Hats and Tops are here

Please include the Packing Slip in your parcel to help the team with recording.

This photo shows some excellent vests with good body length and generous armholes.  We are recommending having armholes 1/3, side seam 2/3 of total body length.
