"Hi Karin, I've been crocheting for about 35 years and knitting for less than that...about 4 years. I really enjoy doing something I love for charity. Welcome to our happy group of knitters and crocheters!"

"Linda, Thanks for the info about sending the squares...I'd rather spend what I can on things for kids rather than post! Karin"

"Thanks for the welcome, Linda! I'm always surprised whenever anyone knows where Belleville is. I knit and crochet, and have done some of both for KAS, I have enough of a pile of colour-coordinated ones now that I might just do enough for a…"

Hello Karin and welcome to our KAS community.

Thank you for joining us and for your contributions to the orphaned and vulnerable children.

Here is a post that will touch your heart: http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/thank-you-kas-from-the-bottom You may also like to start you own personal blog in which you can post your news, views and family stories and photos. http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/categories/members-personal-blogs/listForCategory

We run a challenge each month. For the next three months it is all about squares. We have a grand total of 55,900 squares we are trying to achieve and would love you to participate.

Don't forget to post photographs of your work. We have an awesome gallery of the work of the KAS community which is really inspiring.

Did you receive the latest ezine? If not you can view it here: http://www.knit-a-square.com/Square_Circle-backissues.html. Follow the blog: www.allfororphans.com for a different perspective on why we need to look out for these children. And for precise details about the project, visit www.knit-a-square.com

Some of our members further support KAS by making a small monthly donation through Paypal (top left hand corner). This is invaluable help as it ensures we can continue to ensure that your work is speedily distributed to the most needy children in South Africa. We are deeply grateful for any donation we receive, be it monetary or squares to help the orphans. Thank you.

A thought or two......even though some blankets have been making it through, the people in South Africa would like us to send squares. This is to avoid duty. Also we are to mark "No Commercial Value" and "For Charity" on the package. And where it asks for value we put zero.
BTW, I always send packages surface mail. That's the price I quoted in the other note. It takes 6-8 weeks but is considerably cheaper than air !
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Morning Karin, sounds like you have a good pile of squares ready to go. The large size blanket is 35 squares but there are other sizes as well.....the toddler size is 20 and the next size up is 28. Apparently there are lots of baby blankets so we are being asked not to send any that size right now.
Here's the link to the dimensions for garments, etc.
http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/recommended-garment-dimensions
I usually send about 35-40 squares which seems to be the limit for sending from here. The most cost efficient way to send is a package with dimensions no more than 90 cm and weighing 2 kg. It cost $24.07 to send something this size. Anything else (smaller or bigger ) starts to get really expensive.
Looking forward to seeing your squares on the photos page.
Linda

Hi Karin,
Welcome to the forum ! We have a good time chatting back and forth so jump in anytime. Have you joined the Canadian Corner. It is quiet right now but sometimes we have quite the discussions. I live in northern Ontario but know Belleville. My sister lived there for a while and my cousin lives near by.
Do you knit or crochet ?
