Hi Carol.. so glad you have joined Knit a Square. Its a very friendly group and I am sure you will soon find your way around the various topics. Where in Somerset do you live? I am over the border in Dorset.
A warm welcome to Knit A Square from over here in Western Australia. :))
Knitting or crocheting an 8" square or two or possibly even a few is a wonderful gift for a vulnerable child in South Africa. The children love to receive their blankets, created from squares, which come from kindly, caring folk such as yourself, from over 60 countries all over our world. You are encouraged to knit/crochet in any stitch you prefer, but we do ask that they not be too 'lacy' as warmth is our highest priority. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone to all our blankets. These are single colour squares that are in garter stitch(knitting) or single crochet as they are very solid and provide a contrast to a picture/striped/patterned square or two that may be added to a blanket.By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of patterns provided by our fellow KASers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist for 2016, you can see what items we are currently focusing on.
Clicking on the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page, will possibly answer many initial questions you may have . Any other questions...please ask...we love to help. :))
