"I had to ask Ronda to source a suitable picture of a distribution at a creche to add here.  Next time there is a distribution I'll try to gather the stories and photos to make a real report of it!"

"Leanne, here are two pairs of handwarmers I promised to knit to match with your blue hat. It was hard to find the right shade of blue. I will send them in my next parcel to your attention. Cheers."

Profile Information

I've been a keen knitter for most of my life, starting as a reluctant ten-year-old in Housecraft class at school, then taking on all sorts of challenges in my early twenties, like cable-knit cushion covers and Kaeff Facet-designed garments. However, my gradual loss of sight through early-onset macular degeneration limited my access to patterns and I moved into knitting squares for charity in 2003. Finding KAS South Africa is thrilling for me as I've been actively looking for fellow knitters and a way to participate in something bigger than myself. I love what the organisation represents and applaud those who have made it what it is!
