Hello Maggie.thank you for your kind comments and the link for the crochet. I am going to have a go at doing some crochet squares next month when I have loads of time in airports. It is easier to sit and crochet waiting for plane than to sit and knit. Blankets take me different amounts of time to knit depending on how much work I have to do. Most of the time I knit whilst I watch TV so usually they take 2 to 3 weeks each depending on how easy the pattern is.
Hello Maggie, thanks for your interesting info about the Wraps of Love project - sounds pretty much like KAS! For the Downunder Group, click on the Groups tab on the menu bar near the top of the page - the Downunder Group can be found on pages 1,2, or 3 - the Ning system keeps the groups moving around! However, the DU Grouproup is not very active, not sure why, perhaps everyone is so busy........ You can actually read the activities of any of the groups, also you can join any Group - usually there is a Join note to click on. The UK Group has quite a few Canadian & Australian members because we all have relatives scattered about. Anything you can do to spread the word is appreciated - we are bypassing governments & politicians and getting on with making some of these parentless kids feel warm & valued! Take care. Pam
