Hey, Sarah! Thanks for friending me! Yes, it's true - this is a fun place! I always come away from the forum with a project...and a smile! By the way, I wanted to ask you, is Northwich anywhere near Norwich?
Welcome, Sarah from across the Atlantic! Glad to see you've already joined the UK discussion group - a lively, well-informed bunch ready to help and encourage at the drop of a (knitted, of course!) hat!
I'm sure you'll enjoy Square Circle forum; it's great for finding friends, understanding and inspiration.
Welcome to Kas, Sarah from across the Pond in Canada. There's lots of lovely UK knitters on Knit A Square and they do some super fundraising and "KAS on the Go" days, when they get passersby involved too. I hope you enjoy the UK group, just click in the header above to join. I find KAS such a rewarding cause to be involved in and I hope you enjoy it too. The more creativity the better, it all warms and helps heal the children, gives them hope and love and the knowledge they're not forgotten. Do check out the New Member Guide which is found by clicking "Main Page" in the header above. To reach the Discussions just click Forum above. Any questions just PM me. :) Welcome to Knit A Square! Blankets and hats and sweaters direct from our hands to their hearts, a win-win.
KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017. If Ronda’s wishes come true, in 2018 even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world.
