Hey Bev,

What size hook did you use on Miss Olivia and what were the final dimensions?

Stay warm down under and we will try to stay cool.

Me again.  I was wondering what is the best type of packaging to use to mail the squares (e.g. padded envelope)?

Hi Bev

I think I am on the right track.  I’ve sent the picture by email to the forum as I am not sure how to attach it here.  They are made up of leftover yarn (double thickness).   I am anxious to mail out my first batch!

Morning Bev

Thanks for the 'welcoming' email.  I live fairly close to the drop-off point in Randburg so will hand deliver the squares.  Only just discovered theKAS 'themes' but have a few already knitted that would fit .. I'll get stuck in to reach the 35 square target! :)  I must admit I am having a great deal of fun and pleasure knitting these squares.

They are 8 inch squares.  The patterns just don’t fit your theme.  Thanks for all the info!

Hi Bev

Thank you very much for your email.  I just want to make sure you accept any squares as I have already made quite a few before receiving this email.  I was also wondering how many squares would be best to mail at one time.

HI Bev, Thank you for the warm welcome, and all of the information.  

Oh yes, I have discovered the PJ pattern.  It is a wonderfully easy pattern for those of us who are not experienced with crochet.  It looks nice and works up quickly.  It provides a little break from knitting.

Some Gorgeous squares Bev. I will definitely keep a look out for your parcels. Especially love the 6 butterflies and really all the themed ones. Lucky children who get blankets wi5 your squares!!

Thank you for your warm welcome to the forum Bev. It is a joy to open the parcels and be inspired by what we find to join together into gorgeous blankets. I sew together about 50 blankets/year and love every one. None of which would be possible without the kind and generous contributions of lovely ladies like you!

many blessings on you and your family

One Love

I did get the link, and I've been reading over it to make sure I fill out the customs form properly.  I think I've got a few more squares to make to meet the 35 per afghan, but then there will be 3 afghans' worth.  I'm on spring break this week, so I'm hoping I can get them finished and shipped off this week!

I've been working hard at making bunches of squares for multiple afghans, but I can't find the page that told me how many are used per afghan.  Do you know?  I'd like to group them and send them that way...

Thanks a lot! Will explore! BR

Bev - thank you for your response to my message.  My more recent squares are meeting the 8" "requirement".  This is such a great way to make a difference.  I'm happy to be part of it.  Nancy

This is a great way for a senior citizen to contribute to a worthy cause all the while using up all the "left-over" yarn from long ago finished products.  I must admit I haven't knit in quite a while and not know the "size" of the yarn, a few of my first tries did not come out exactly 8 inches square.  Can they still be used?  Thank you.

Very cute animal square.

Dear Bev, thank you for your messages.

Funny but I am exactly in the same position as Patricia Underwood (below). I've been  sending hats and squares to KAS for years, but only just joined the forum. The main reason is that I have a question: as I'm getting older, my wrists are not so great and I find it easier to knit DOUBLE, i.e. my squares are 2Dk on 51/2mm needles. They are thicker, of course but still pliable and very warm. Is that OK?
