Hey no problem. Look forward to receiving them. I am just finishing a couple of blankets for the charity Sands (stillbirth & neonatal) then I will back to the squares. Not doing alphabet need to cool those needles for a while. regards Shirley
What I love about KAS is that every square, however expertly or INexpertly crafted, is welcomed and used. And in that uncritical atmosphere, members are free to grow in their knitting and crochet knowledge and skill, supported by friendly crafters who are themselves at many different points on the journey to yarn expertise!
I remember reading a comment shortly after I joined Square Circle forum, to the effect that a novice knitter had decided that it was more important that a child be warm than that her squares be perfect. And that's the guiding philosophy here; I love that!

Welcome, Jacqui, to Square Circle Forum! I have so much enjoyed being part of this vibrant, helpful, upbeat community over the past half-year or so! It's great for advice, friendship and just finding a smile to brighten your day.
Oh, and DO join the U.K. discussion group -- from bargain yarn hints to knitting events, there always seems to be something interesting going on there!
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.
