That's awesome Heather that the manageress saves the yarn for you.  I was born in Yorkshire but we left early and I'd like to fly back over some time and go tour around it.  I think your nights start closing in and dipping in temperatures about the same time ours do in the middle of Canada. It's certainly an incentive to knit or crochet! It keeps us warm too while we're doing it.

i think Boyes is great for yarn too Heather lots of choice and reasonable prices, i went yesterday to get some yarn for the September challenge .

I joined the group last year but haven't posted much since. 

I get most of my yarn from Boyes in York. The manageress is very kind and saves all the old, unlabelled yarns for me instead of throwing them away.

Welcome Susan and Heather, thank you for joining. So which are your favourite places to shop for yarn ?  Like Susan, I also am addicted, and do some knitting every day. For my own garments I shop at Knit Owl in Richmond, but for KAS various people donate yarn to me (so kind). And you are so lucky Heather to live in York. My MOST favourite city in the world.

Hello to all new(ish) Yorkshire members! I'm in the beautiful city of York and knit/crochet for KAS in any moment I get! As well as that, my husband and I run the York City Gospel Choir - so look out for us in and around Yorkshire!

Welcome Evelyn and Kate, glad that you ahve found the Yorkshire Group, which is fairly new, do spread the word amongst any knitters with Yorkshire connections. I knit in Richmond and am about to send off another package of Squares to KAS. Although I have other projects to get on with, it is just too addictive to do another square ....

Comment by EVELYN kilvington on September 1, 2014 at 9:18pm

Although I have been working for KaS  for over four years I do not get on the website often,so the Yorkshire group is new, yay.

Welcome newest members of the Yorkshire group. Have a look at my April batch fo Squares, and my recent challenge, and do add what you are knitting as well.




Thanks to the dedication of the volunteers, the total of 18,684 squares is the second highest for 2014.   This is a fantastic feat considering the last two Thursdays of December were holidays [Christmas and New Year’s Day] 

The S.A. team will not receive parcels in the order sent and is still attempting to clear the backlog. Please be patient and watch the Squares Lists for your name. 

If your parcel is not on this list, it will be on the next one or even the one after that !

The December 2014 Squares List is available on www.knit-a-square.com “Received Squares”

Graphs for Squares, Hats and Tops are here

Please include the Packing Slip in your parcel to help the team with recording.
