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.

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...

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!

Bev,

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
