Hi Lorraine, ive taken a photo of the hats you gave me yesterday......i will post the photo in the 'Passion for Purple' theme discussion when it starts in Feb.....keep your eyes peeled for your work. thank you. :))))
A warm welcome to Knit A Square..... from over here in Western Australia. I am guessing you are a friend of our dear Louise. :))
Knitting or crocheting an 8" square or two or possibly even a few is a wonderful gift for the vulnerable children of South Africa. They love to receive their blankets, created from squares, which come from kindly, caring folk such as yourself, from over 60 countries all over our world. You are encouraged to knit/crochet in any stitch you prefer, but we do ask that they not be too 'lacy' as warmth is our highest priority. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone to all our blankets. These are single colour squares that are in garter stitch(knitting) or single crochet as they are very solid and provide a contrast to a picture/striped/patterned square or two that may be added to a blanket.By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of patterns provided by our fellow KASers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist, you can see what items we are currently focusing on.
Clicking on the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page, will possibly answer many initial questions you may have .Any other questions...please ask...we love to help. :)) You can also find postage information and a packing slip to send with parcels there.
If you'd like to see what other KASers have been making please click on the photo tab at the top of the page....and feel free to add photos of your creations...we would love to see them. Just click on 'add photos' and follow the prompts.
If you want to see the most active discussions at present, you may like to click on the 'main page' tab and they are listed in the centre of that page...just pick one and click on it. It is a large website, but with so much fun and info.
Each month we have a fun theme to inspire and motivate us. If you would like to see this month's theme, please click on this link:
Hi Lorraine, welcome to Knit-a-Square, so pleased you have joined us. Did you have a look through the KAS Pattern Book? There are several toy patterns to try. This month we are promoting the KASCuddlebug pattern. This toy was designed by ladies in the UK and is the mascot for KAS.
Our knitting group meets on the 3rd Wednesday in the month, the next meeting in Feb will be at Jude's house from 2pm-4pm, hope to see you there. Happy knitting! :)))
KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017. If Ronda’s wishes come true, even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world in 2018.
