I have just joined the OZ group and I have had fun finding all the other people in Aust. doing work for KAS. I am getting to the end of my yarn so a friend is giving me some more soon. It certainly saves money. I have had fun making my new little picture book as a fund raiser for KAS. "Wool-Girl and the Balls of Wool". I have just knitted my first diagonal square - it was fun.
I know exactly what you mean Jeanne; If I'm going to have an addiction to anything, I figure that knitting up squares is a pretty safe one! It gives me such a buzz and yes, I do keep looking at all that beautiful wool.........wonderful......................x
Warmest wishes, Sandie
Hi Sandie. I think you and I are going to be good for the next 10 Stashbuster challenges with our yarn windfalls. I love looking in the bags and touching the yarns. At least it's less calories than a bag of candy and longer lasting too, lol.
Welcome to our warm KAS community. It's great to see you. We hope you will enjoy the forum and your region's group. You should join the Downunder group.
There are lots of great discussions going on in the forum, including the monthly challenges.
We are still continuing our July Challenge - keep a newborn warm, making blankets for abandoned babies, and there were some great results for the August in Africa challenge - you can see photographs under the photos menu. (Details of both challenges in the main forum). We're also continuing our September challenge which is also under "challenges" in the forum and have got the October challenge which is fascinating, please see click the link for further information:
