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...

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.

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?

Dear Bev

Thank you so much for the lovely warm welcome but I've actually been sending my work to KAS for the last 5 years - I just hadn't got round to joining the Forum before! Now I need to work out how to add some photos ..

Hi again Bev,

Rosie LOVED making the handwarmers. We'll send as many as possible... Thanks for all the information and for writing to us.

Hi Bev,

Thank you so much for the welcome email! I joined the forum after I found your website and facebook page. My mom, Rosie, is the knitter and I was searching online for places to donate new knitted items. We are in the USA and just did a general search and your organization came up! I've also been in touch with Pam on facebook.

Rosie and I will be sending the first box with mostly hats and sweaters for children. She has the pattern now for the squares and has started making hand warmers. Next box will be all squares and hand warmers.

We want to help and are so glad to find an organization like yours that does such nice work.

Thank you for the note and all the links. I'll stay in touch!

Thank you for the tip! I've never done diagonal squares before so it will be my first. I absolutely love what you have knitted. They are gorgeous! I love the embellishments you have put on them they are so cute. Do they stay on well?

Hi Bev,

Thank you for that warm welcome, I've already been looking at your site and I am excited to get started. I don't know how much I will be able to complete as I am a slow knitter but PJ's are my forte. I am hoping to donate once every six months. Which gives me plenty of time. I do love the idea of a themed month, looking forward to seeing what is next months theme.

Thank you for all the links I look forward to getting to know this site pretty well!

- Jasmine

Thanks for your lovely comment and help Bev, I measured the first strip on the carpet and knitted the others to match not knowing that I had stretched it when I put it down. So this time I will use the laminate kitchen floor. Who would think I was talking about knitting:)) x x

Thanks so much Bev, for the kindness in your words to everyone. You are one of a kind, friend.

Hi Bev, thanks a lot for your warm welcome!  It has been a nice start of my day. Although my intention yesterday was finding somebody to give my already crocheted squares to, now I "wake up" that I am finally a member of an enthusiastic community. I searched for crochet/knitting for charity a time ago and found this site among others, and although I started crocheting some squares it was yesterday that I signed up in KAS looking for some member that lives close to my town here in south BC, so I can give she/them my items.

Thanks again, and enjoy this wonderful Summer ... oops! sorry, Australia is below the Ecuator  :)   Greetings,

Thanks Bev,

My favourites are bunny, Donald Duck and far right teddy. Kathy couldn't resist making him a scarf.

Thanks for my Birthday Wishes Bev, Kathy was really surprised how quick they came. Hope yours arrives soon x x

Hi Bev,

Thank you so much for the warm welcome. 

I'm happy I found you and can't wait to start knitting the PJs. I'll try to do my best.

Thanks Bev,

Holiday knitting is great. Has two bonuses.. Relaxing and helping keep children warm & cosy. The variegated in these hats are 25g balls of a mix of plain and variegated and I love mixing and matching them. I have a large box of them still in the van so there are going to be quite a few more as well as several pairs of hand warmers:))
