"Yes Bev. I know about cling wrap. I used open-sided freezer bags who do not condensate. I sent it by e mail, am too impatient. Mine was $45 Australian but I never go out and can spare it. Cheers."

"Christa, just to give you another bit of 'helpful' advice, Ronda has asked that we don't put things in cling wrap, as this seems to make the squares etc 'smell' by the time they get to S Africa. (just saying, in case someone…"

"Thank you Ladies. I'm glad I found this group. What a worth while cause! My problem was how to wrap the parcels as Australia does not have brown packing paper to wrap odd shaped objects. Had to order that from England. Lol!"

Welcome to Knit A Square, Christa from the middle of Canada and I'm sooo late in adding this...sorry.  I plead old age and too humid outside, lol.  Right....anyways Knit A Square is a charity providing blankets, hand warmers, soft toys and hats to orphans and AIDS victim children throughout South Africa.   We are very glad to have you with us.  I am in the middle of Canada and we have the option of sea mail to post. J It takes 6 weeks or so but gets there just the same.  Check out our Groups area (see top of page, far right) to find groups formed in your countries. You can join as few or many as you wish and there are many good tips for posting to be found there, as well as fun get togethers and knitting afternoons and other tidbits shared.  The photos section contains a small sampling of contributors’ items; the Discussions section is large but check out the reports from South Africa and drop into Café KAS for a giggle if you want one.  Again, welcome!  Ask questions freely and have fun sending your love and warmth to the children! (check out the monthly challenges for interesting ideas of what to knit or crochet or loom knit)

Hi Christa.

A warm welcome to Knit A Square from over here in Western Australia.  :))  It's great to see another Aussie join the forum. It's a little ch-ch-chilly here today.

Knitting or crocheting an 8" square or two or possibly even a few is a wonderful gift for a vulnerable child in South Africa. The children 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 for 2016, 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.  :))
