Awesome!  Love the song and the clip, hope it brings lots more squares in to KAS. Well done Gloria!

Comment by Linda Maltby on Monday

Our own Gloria Grandy [with help from her family] has created a wonderful video for KAS.  It will have you tapping your toe and singing along with this very catchy tune. 

The Knit-a-Square Song … A great way to spread the word! 

Here is the video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGvqcUZ4OGs&feature=youtu.be

Please share the video with family and friends.  Also add your comments  on Gloria’s October challenge   http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/october-challenge-share...

PS I’ve also added the music video to the Main Page of the forum.

CHEAP YARN ALERT!!

If the Spotlight catalogues are nationwide then you need to know that they are offering 100g balls of 'Moda Vera Instinctive' for $1.00 a ball. 7 colours.

Hello , I have just joined.  I am at Hardwicke Bay on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. I live in a small seaside  community, surrounded by farm land..sheep and cereal cropping.  I have sent off 2 parcels  to KAS, and my 90 year old mother in Bendigo is now contributing beanies and hand warmers. I am a nurse in an Aged Care nursing home and  a 90 year old resident  is now knitting little teddies and jumpers to contribute also.

THE POSTAL STRIKE IN SOUTH AFRICA HAS GATHERED MOMENTUM!

 

Ronda has requested we hold back sending for a week as a gigantic backlog is building up. She hasn't been able to extract any parcels for 2 weeks! Please watch this space for an update

Welcome Margaret. You will love it here. I have bought the Bendigo wool too it is beautiful. I was lucky this week to find some good oddments of wool in an op. shop. Bev in WA will keep an eye on you from Australia.

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. I live in the country and don't have a local wool shop so I purchased pure wool from the Bendigo Woollen Mills at $12 for a 200g ball. If you spend $60 there is no postage payable.I think this is good value. I have knitted my first 10 squares in Beautiful Blues. Just got delivery today of variegated wool for this months challenge and look forward to seeing how it knits up.

Hello all, I joined last week after meeting the lovely ladies at the Bendigo Wool show! I'm wondering if there is anyone in the Ballarat area who would be interested in having a local group?

Thanks, Joanne!  Very soon I will be adding a KasShop board to our Pinterest page.  My hope is, that by adding Pins of the various items we offer, some non-Kasfolk will feel a heart tug and purchase something even if they never make  a square or become members. We need to find as many ways as we can to bring more $$ into KAS
