Hello to all,
Like many of you out there, I have never written a blog before, but here goes, I'll give it a try!
I found out about KAS from a friend's Facebook feed, looking at her page one day I saw a picture of a blanket made of squares that she had sewn together, drilling down into the post I found myself viewing a wonderful video of beautiful people and children and immediately I wanted to be a part of it. I telephoned my sister and told her to have a look too. I started on my first square that day. My sister needed a refresher in knitting so we got together and she started her squares. She has since taught herself to crochet by using YouTube. Two months ago we decided to start our own Facebook Group and invite friends to knit with us. Our group is called Oz Knitwits and we now have 21 members, some of whom I have had to teach to knit as well as to crochet, including my 28 year old son. We are in Australia, but our group has members in the UK as well as SA. We have had the group for 2 months now. We also have members who are not on Facebook, like an 81 year old lady who has picked up her needles for the first time in 30 years and is absolutely loving being a part of what we do. We as part of the global human race are getting so much out of what we are doing, so thank you KAS for giving us the opportunity that we otherwise may not have had.
