Last week I bought a quantity of Paintbox yarns and was delighted with what I received. I bought Aran weight in bright colours but there are many more options and I love them. Now, when I'm spent out, Love Knitting have a 3 for 2 offer on the whole range, including colour packs. I dare not buy more but I'd like to - perhaps one of you could be tempted?
I am doing mainly Hats , Sandra does Hand warmers and Squares.. I have 20 ready to go , I hope to go to our Local Save the Children Shop and get some toys tomorrow to add to my bag the knitted things come to 1500 grams already. I have been told Aldi have some Wool , but I usually stick to Marriners at £1 per 100grams for double knit acrylic free postage if you buy £25 worth
It is Thought Bubble sequential art festival this week and Ricky, my 26-year old, and I will be there for the weekend. There is always an element of Cosplay so I shall be asking folks to be photographed with my current square, and then tweeting the photos. (@KnitRebecca)
This year I have made some of the KAS business cards with my details on the back and #KnitASquare to hand out to all who agree - very easy to create with the template on the KAS website and I feel quite excited about handing them out!

Life Swap Adventures. Has anyone been watching this? If not, try to catch the first episode on BBC iplayer before they remove it - George in Malawi. He is going to get his bees as there has been enough raised through crowdfunding and a bit more to help his village.
this years postage rise for 2kg economy small parcels is only 10 pence going up from £13.25 to £13.35 , I used to send when I had 1kg but find if I have enough Knitted for a blanket, with toys it comes to 1.5 kg it is better to continue till just below the 2kg for best value
Ah well that's interesting Linda and as you say every little helps.
Elaine has sent money to Ronda today from one of our regular contributors. There are a few people who donate regularly to Knit for Life so that we can claim Gift Aid here in the UK and pass the total on to Ronda.
I had a peek at Eastfundraising to see what shops were offered. I can't order because I'm in Canada but today I received a survey from them. They donated 50p to Knit for Life when I completed the survey. So eventhough I can't buy anything using Easyfundraising, I've been able to donate 50p to Knit for Life, who will send it on to Ronda. Every little bit helps.

One time donation:
Postal costs for incoming parcels has risen alarmingly since mid-April
because of a new rule that ALL overseas parcels attract the customary
handling fee and that has been increased to R51.50 PER PARCEL[$3.74USD].
