Ronda has expressed the need for a newer vehicle to transport squares and blankets. Helen Flagg has proposed to the US Group that we raise funds to help KAS purchase a car. The idea has gone global and there is an initiative on the forum about it. Check the latest ezine video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VK9mbUrGWI&feature=youtu.be
Thanks Jennifer, Pixel is a real sweetie. He is also a very gentle cat. We have 3, the female is part Siamese and thinks she is a princess :-) The third is quite timid around other people but friendly with us. All 3 of them are great lap blankets !!!
Welcome to KAS, Jennifer from Canada up above MN. My baby brother lives in Ogden which isn't far from you, with his wife and 4 kids. No, I haven't convinced him to learn to crochet or knit yet. Give me time! ;) I too am a crocheter. My mum was a knitting whiz, I'm a knitting plodder so crochet it is. Even there I have my adventures....too large sweater anyone? Ah we live and learn. And this place has a lot of EASY patterns, right up my alley. :)

Blankets and hats and sweaters direct from our hands to their hearts, a win-win.
Hello Jennifer, lovely to have you join us, both on the forum and the Square-a-Day group. There hasn't been much activity there recently but I don't think that members have stopped knitting.
You're right - it is a great cause and also a wonderful place to learn new techniques and patterns. Everyone is very friendly and if you have any queries there is always someone happy to help. Looking forward to seeing your tallies and perhaps pictures?
