Many thanks everyone, for racking your brains.  It was Emily's Creche in Alexandra [called Alex] South Africa.  Apparently there were pictures in an e-zine, remember those?  Roz    x

Oh well, seeing as we're sharing.....!

But just think of all those lovely squares.

On another note, I seem to remember when we adopted the creche, Carol Playford (who kindly organised the collection and payment) received a certificate from Sandy, which may have had the details on it...? There was also a mention and a couple of pictures in the old KAS News after the event, so probably around December 2011 time... but I haven't been able to find it either. x

Karen Bennett - this is all totally your fault! My Kemps order has arrived - yummy! No earthly idea where it's going to go as my huge yarn shelf (which is the whole wall of my office) is stuffed to bursting!

Still, work has slowed down for the summer so I'm just going to have to knit longer to make room for it all.

I've been looking for this and find it was in October 2011. Here's the challenge http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/adopt-a-creche?groupUrl...

but although we were notified that we had achieved the adoption I can't see anywhere that says which one it was. I have it in my mind that it was Emily's Creche but I'll keep looking unless someone is able to find it.

Roz, I joined the group over 3 years ago and I still have no idea! 

Comment by rosamund goodwin on July 23, 2015 at 1:35am

Can anyone tell me the name of our crèche and where it is?  It was adopted before I became a member of UK group    Roz x

I once had a post office employee insist that "everything has a value" and I let him put £1 on the customs declaration but normally I just put £0. I think the problem might be that some people just don't check the website regularly, (or ever!) and simply don't know.
P.s. Very good addition to your stash, Sharon.

Sharon - that looks delicious! Yes, it's all Karen's fault - my parcel will hopefully arrive tomorrow too! But after this month's spending spree, my yarn shelves are already crammed - together with the very kind gift from you last Saturday!

Still - it's not going back...
