Please visit the discussion at

Will do. Thank you. I'll knit some scarfs to add to my next parcel.

Any stitch you like Joanne, the criteria is that they are navy blue and the measurements in the discussion are stuck too. For the width, if you aim for 8 inches you won't go wrong! Just clink on Anne's link and scroll down the pattern!

Hi Anne,
How do you want the blue scarfs - garter stitch, plain knits or ribs? I'll try to get some dark blue yarns. I understand it can be in wool or acrylic, right ?

IMPORTANT NOTE RE: THE NAVY BLUE SCARF PROJECT

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

http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/special-report-the-navy...

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

You will be very pleased to know that the strike has ended!

THE POSTAL STRIKE IN SOUTH AFRICA IS OVER  - OFFICIAL!

Wendy collected 27 boxes and 24 large mail bags full of post today and Bryanston expect to receive post for KAS from the central sorting depot - everyday! It took three trips, so the team will be having an opening day Thursday!

Not to worry, Sue....can't be helped when you don't know. When the strike is over a notice will be put in the 'news flash' box, on the right hand side of any page you go to on KAS. Thank you for your continued support.  :))

I think the strike is into its third month now, so it has been going for a loooong time and that is why they are concerned about getting too many parcels piling up at the other end of the journey.  :))

Comment by Sue Reeves on November 23, 2014 at 10:40am

I didn't know there was a postal strike and sent a box a couple of weeks ago, even the guy at the post office didn't tell me

Comment by Anne Powell on November 22, 2014 at 11:19pm

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.
