Thanks Kathy.

Hi Philippa! Just returned from holiday and saw your question regarding needles. I appreciate you've found a home for them now, but for information Knit for Peace based in London will always accept any needles etc. It's useful to know as the postal charges are so low as posting within UK. My understanding is that Ronda needs crochet hooks (4mm) more than knitting needles as the Gogos use them for making up the blankets. I hope this helps, Kathy x

Thank you Elaine. They have already found a home but it's good to know if I ever find myself with excess needles again.

Philippa, I don't know if anyone has responded to your question but I believe your spare knitting needles would be much welcomed in South Africa.  We have sent quite a few in the past.

Hi everyone,
I have had a declutter and decided to slimline my knitting needle stash. I now have a bag of surplus, of various sizes, mostly in pairs. Before I hand them to a local charity, does anyone need any or know a good cause that does? Also, can they be used by KAS in South Africa if I include them in my next parcel?

just took 45 squares to my mom for posting - she will add a few tragic teddies ! Its awfully cold here today which will make me produce more squares. I DO miss adding my totals onto the others.

Amanda - I always check that they have understood I want the cheapest possible rate going overland and that it will take a couple of months to get there and is a maximum of 2Kg - when I take stuff and ask for International Economy Rate they do not always seem to know what I am asking for!  The last parcel I sent they tried to charge me £20 for till I said "NO, that can't be right - the most it should cost is about £13!"  They soon sorted it out when I said that.

In their defence there are an awful lot of postal rates these days!

Amanda, yes it can be confusing but it isn't difficult.

1) Print out a Packing Slip from this page http://api.ning.com/files/cLrAd6kUb1CAAmMhZ6ZDgPzVZ04NjiOZWG5Pg4dwn...  and enclose the completed top section in the parcel.


2.Stick the bottom half of packing slip to wrapped parcel, which you may want to weigh to make sure it isn't more than 2kg..

3) Tell your PO clerk that you want International Economy Rate. If asked to complete a Custom's Declaration write GIFT and state the value as NIL so that duty isn't incurred.

That's all.

sorry to have when you take your parcel to the post , when they see its for overseas they will give you a customs decleration form , this you fill in and it is attached by the P.O. staff to your parcel , the rest of it such as the address for Knit a Square is on the web site, after a few parcels you will wonder what you worried about
