Hello Mary.  A very warm welcome to you from a River John Square Knitter :)  Are you one of the wonderful ladies I met while visiting the Stellarton Library one Friday afternoon? We are delighted that you have joined us here on the Forum.

Greetings Mary from NW Ontario! Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African HIV/Aids orphans and some of he poorest of the poor. Glad to have you with us!  To see and hear what we do I suggest listening to this great original song about KAS and how easy it is to get involved, written and produced by KAS members and supporters.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGvqcUZ4OGs&feature=youtu.be

 

It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, in the page header above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world, not to mention Patterns where you can get inspired with easy level patterns of things the children really need, the right sizes and shapes being mentioned in looming, felting, knitting and crocheting. People also sew fleece hats and sew dolls and teddies, so all crafty types have a place here!

 

When you click on Discussions, the Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section above) shows the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I recommend the Café KAS Discussion section, which contains the Furry, Feathered and Fishy Companions and Share A Yarn threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic!  Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!

Hi Mary.

A warm welcome to Knit A Square.....from over here in Western Australia.

Making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and help the children.  Plain Janes, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of Knit-A-Square.  Since a blanket is created with 35 squares sent by people from around the world, squares are needed all the time. The basic square being a garter stitch/single colour or striped square or I think it is single or double crochet  if your preference is for crochet. By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of other patterns provided by our fellow KASers.  

Please check out the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page as this may answer many initial questions you may have and will help you get started. Any other questions...just ask...we love to help.  :))

Here is a link to postage information, including our packing slip that we attach INSIDE our parcel to assist in the unpacking/recording process at Knit-A-Square in S. Africa.

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 own work...we would love to see them. Just click on 'add photos' and follow the prompts. Anything you care to make and send will be so appreciated by Ronda and the team and the children of South Africa.

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:
