LET'S BE A PART OF IT !

Not sure if you guys know or it's already been mentioned - KAS is asking that we help pay the rent for a day. EVERY little bit helps.

1.  Follow this link: Click HERE 

You will follow another link to Paypal

2. You will choose to send "Money to a Friend". You will need Ronda's email: Ronda@knit-a-square.com

3. It will ask Country of Residence: South Africa

4. You get a confirmation page: Best to choose to pay with a bank draft. Look on the top where it says: You Are Paying With.. 

NOTE: If you use your bank instead of a credit card - you pay a  $.25 fee. The option of the credit card was $2.25. 

DONE !

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!

Please post photos of your scarves in the discussion and in Photos - we have an album started.

Thanks, Helen, for promoting this to the US Group.  I must do this for the other major groups as well.  You said it so well, that I may just "steal" some of your words!!!!

Ok, Helen.  I thought they all had to be a uniform length and look for their uniforms.

Look above where there is a tab called "Discussion/Categories."  Click on that and scroll down to the Navy Blue Scarf Project.  All the directions are in that discussion.

Helen - Where can we find the post you mention in your comment? - I can create a loom knitting pattern for the scarf and post it on my site but I need the specifics

Thanks, 

denise

Maureen.......Google "How to add tassels to a scarf."  There are some great visual demonstrations that are easy to understand on You Tube.

Comment by maureen fast on February 20, 2015 at 2:42pm

Could you please describe how you add the tassels onto the Navy blue scarves.

Thanks, Maureen

It seems every time the group hears from me we have a fundraiser in the offing! So, no, not this time!  I am posting to encourage all of us in the U.S. group to get involved with the Navy Scarf project.  This is a really important project for KAS and will benefit the cold school children.  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.  The directions on the Forum are really clear, whether knitted or crocheted.

If you are crocheting a navy scarf, I have discovered a time saver.  My good Canadian friend Anne Powell happened to mention in a KAS post related to the scarves that she is crocheting her scarves long-wise the length of the scarf.  I had just completed my first scarf and was crocheting side to side and had been grousing about having to turn each row.  I just began my second scarf, and aside from the monotony of chaining 43 inches, I am finding the going SO much easier and quicker to simply crochet the full length of the scarf and then turn. Anything that will save time is worth a go. 

Thank you so much to all of you for your participation and your caring about the children.  They need so much...........and we are blessed with so much to give.
