"It's an interesting idea and thank you for the vote of confidence.  For now, though, I'm just enjoying being able to knit squares and learn.  Maybe sometime in the future...we'll see!"

"Thank you for another moving report.  I was a delight to be introduced to Nani and her relationship with Mable and KAS.  You are so very right about there being a story behind every item, and you are a great story teller. Bless you."

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!
