Greetings Chrissie, a tad late as usual but from the middle of Canada where it danged well snowed this morning. As if! Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African HIV/Aids orphans and the poorest of the poor. Glad to have you with us!  It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, in the header above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world, not to mention Patterns where you can get inspired with easy level patterns of things the children really need, the right sizes and shapes.

 

When you click on Discussions, the Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section above) shows the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I also recommend the Café KAS Discussion section, which contains the Furry, Feathered and Fishy Companions and Share A Yarn threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic!  Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!

Hi Chrissie.

Thanks for the lovely comments about my squares. I find TricksyKnitter.com is a great place to find free knitting charts....with quite a few elephants.....lol. Also, I  google 'free knitting charts for' whatever the subject is that I am after and  will generally get a few sites to 'checkout'. Trust me, I am not creative enough to make up too many of my own....lol. 

Happy knitting!! I would love to see some squares when you have made them, if you feel inclined to share....no pressure to do so, if you'd rather not.  :))

Cheers...from a very wet, south-west Oz.

Hi Chrissie.

Welcome to KAS from over here in WA. Great to have another Aussie 'onboard'.

I am not sure which pattern in particular you were after, but here is a couple of links to KAS patterns.  :))

Hello Chrissie.  Welcome to Knit-a-Square. My name is Gloria and I’m on the Atlantic Coast of Canada … beautiful Nova Scotia, to be exact. A desire to share and to help keep the children in South Africa warm has brought together a wonderful group of caring individuals from all over the world. We are delighted that you have joined us.

This is where we receive information from Ronda and the volunteers in South Africa (South Africa Reports), have our questions answered (Helpful Hints), find patterns (Kas Pattern Book) share photos (Photo tab), conversation, and an occasional good laugh (Share a Yarn) with other Forum members. There are many ongoing discussions (DiscussionsCategories) for you to follow and/or join, and other specific groups (Groups) that may interest you. Just browse through the tabs at the top of the page, and I’m sure you’ll find whatever information you need.

The KAS Pattern Book includes patterns for garments that have been designed by KAS with the specific needs of the children in mind. We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years, as this age group is in need of warm garments and blankets.

Our main focus is 8” x 8” (20 cm x 20 cm) squares for blankets. It doesn’t matter if they are simple knitted or crocheted squares (Plain Janes, we love to call them) or fancy squares. What does matter is that they measure 8” x 8” (20 cm x 20 cm) and that they are warm. Plain Janes are the backbone of KAS. They provide the framework for a few fancy squares to create individuality in a blanket. Since it takes 35 squares to make one blanket, squares are always needed.

Every square you send will be received in South Africa, stitched into a blanket by the wonderful volunteers there, and lovingly wrapped around the shoulders of a vulnerable or needy child, giving him or her warmth and the assurance that someone cares.

Each month we have a different theme/challenge. These are for fun and inspiration, and you are welcome to join in any or all of them. You will find information regarding all of these (including the current ones) under the DiscussionsCategories tab at the top.

Regarding postage, many of us use sea-mail and find that parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive in South Africa. Since parcels are arriving all the time, this is perfectly okay and we encourage you to use the least expensive way to send. Also, it is extremely important that it is clearly marked on our packages “Knitted Squares for Charity Only – No Commercial Value”.

So please sit back, relax, put your feet up, grab your yarn and hook/needles and enjoy. You are among friends.
