Good for you to be on your 5th square and have figured out this website! Keep on!
No problem, Angela. A lot of us are still in the process of finding our way around everything here ... me included :)) Besides, the main thing is the square-making and it sounds like you've got that part down pat ... on your 5th one already. Good for you !! Looking forward to seeing some photos of your work xo
Hi again Angela...I am such a dill sometimes...I copied the rates and forgot to paste them. These come courtesy of Maudie in Tasmania. :))

Here is the latest prices for postage from Australia. I always send via SEAMAIL as airmail prices are horrendous. Also, here is the link to the postal discussion that will provide you with info on how to send it, the inventory list that helps the team in SA to process and record your goodies quicker and more efficiently.
It will take a while to get there, so don't stress. :)) I posted a parcel back in the first week of September last year and it has only just been recorded on the January squares list for 2014, but then I've also had parcels that only take about 8 weeks...and they also have a postal strike in South Africa at the moment.
Thank you for making the squares, they are always so gratefully received. Any other queries, please get back to me. :))
Greetings! Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African HIV/Aids orphans and the poorest of the poor. Glad to have you with us! It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, in the header above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world, not to mention Patterns where you can get inspired with easy level patterns of things the children really need, the right sizes and shapes.
When you click on Discussions, the Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section above) shows the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I also recommend the Café KAS Discussion section, which contains the Our Furry Companions and Yarnaholics threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic! Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!
Hello Angela. A warm welcome to you from Nova Scotia, Canada. So glad you have joined us.
Welcome, Angela, from near Philadelphia in the USA. We are having a cold, snowy winter while you in OZ are having a very hot summer. What a crazy world! So glad you've joined us!
Hi again Angela...great to have another Aussie member. :))
Making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and help the children. Plain Janes, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of KAS. Since a blanket is created with 35 squares sent by people from around the world, squares are needed all the time. The basic square being a garter stitch/single colour or striped square or I think it is single or double crochet if your preference is for crochet. By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of other patterns provided by our fellow KASers.
Please check out the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page as this may answer many initial questions you may have and will help you get started. Any other questions...just ask...we love to help. :))
If you'd like to see what other KASers have been making please click on the photo tab at the top of the page....and feel free to add photos of your own work...we would love to see them. Just click on 'add photos' and follow the prompts. Anything you care to make and send will be so appreciated by Ronda and the team and the children of South Africa.
If you want to see the most active discussions at present, you may like to click on the 'main page' tab and they are listed in the centre of that page...just pick one and click on it. It is a large website, but with so much fun and info.
We also have a theme for every month that you might like to view and participate in, but there is absolutely no pressure to do so. The theme for February can be found here: http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/february-challenge-hear...
We have an Aussie/NZ group called "Down under and Land of the Long White Cloud'. You can find it by clicking on the 'groups' tab at the top of the page and scroll down (there are about 4 pages of groups) until you find it. It has info and discussions from fellow Aussies and NZers.
