Hi Ana, how wonderful that you have a package ready to go. Ronda and the volunteers love opening parcels to see what wonderful squares are inside. The more squares we send, the more children we are keeping warm !
Welcome to KAS, Ana from over in the middle of Canada! I find KAS such a rewarding cause to be involved in and I hope you enjoy it too. Do check out the New Member Guide which is found by clicking "Main Page" in the header above. To reach the Discussions just click Forum above and if you click on Photos above, you will see items that are heading to Africa, in all colors and shapes, plus those that have arrived there. If you click on Groups, above, you can join the friendly USA group or any groups you wish, to chat with. Any questions just PM me. :)
Right now we do not require any baby items. On the 2012 Wish List discussion is an address where baby items can be mailed. We require Go-Overs, Slipovers (soft vests), hats and squares and more squares. Sizes of these items are a minimum of toddler size and preferred is 5 years old to early teen in size, hats fitting a small adult head work for the children. Thank you so much for anything you can do for the orphans, there are literally millions of them.
So, welcome to Knit A Square! Blankets and hats and sweaters direct from our hands to their hearts, a win-win. And now we’re helping out in Zimbabwe too and they need everything over there. I just love making a real difference in a child’s life. So welcome aboard!
After you have a look around you might like to join the UK group or the Scotland group....or both ! There are a few members from the Edinburgh area. There you can discuss specific questions that pertain to your area of the world as yarn weights tend to differ by country. And crochet stitches are different here in Canada ! Also you can join any other group you would like.
For some interesting discussions you might like to click on the 'forum' tab at the top of the page...or another favourite of our members is the photo section which can be viewed by clicking on 'photos' at the top of this page.
We are a friendly, supportive bunch, so if you should have any queries, please ask....there will always be someone able to help you.
