Best wishes for a Happy Birthday. :o)
Hello my name is lindsay and i live in canada.. I have friends who moved from cape town to my city and they are expecting a little boy.. I really wanted to make a baby blanket for them as the south african flag but im struggling find a knitting pattern... I was wondering if you would be able to help me please... This is extremely important to me and I know would mean the world to them as sometimes they are a little homesick... The baby is due on January 31st So thankfully i still have sometime to find the pattern and get it done..
Thank you so much for this and looking forward to hearing from you
Hi Gill, I've sent you a friend request.(See "friends" on the top right hand corner of your page.)
Ronda has sent me her phone # to give to you. I will give it to you in a PM once we are friends.
Hi Gill, you are a busy woman ! Going to Law school as a full time student would be difficult enough but to do it as well as working.......
I have forwarded your request for an address to Ronda Lowrie. Ronda is co-founder of KAS and coordinates the distribution from her home in Bryanston. She will get back to you to arrange the drop off. I am away from the forum for August as we are having family from England to visit.
KAS would be a great project for the Girl Guides. There are many schools and youth groups involved in making squares. Here's the link to the Guide group. They haven't been too active lately. http://forum.knit-a-square.com/group/guidesandscouts
Hello Gillian, so glad you’ve joined us. Keeping the children in South Africa warm has brought together a world-wide group of caring knitters and crocheters.
As you live in South Africa, you know first-hand the needs of the children. Are you able to help Ronda with the sorting and distribution ?
If you haven’t already, please read through the welcome message on the forum main page for helpful hints and things that might interest you. http://forum.knit-a-square.com
If you appreciate a “challenge”, you might like to join one of the Monthly challenges. This is a fun way to try new ideas or patterns. Every month, a theme is chosen, and if you wish, you may create something new and different......it could be using a new colour, a different stitch or a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting. An 8” square is the perfect size for experimenting.
This month’s challenge is almost over but do have a look at Japan, The Orient & a Flavour of the East
And as always, making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still help the children. Plain Jane squares, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of KAS. Since it takes 35 squares to make one blanket, squares are needed all the time.
Whatever you decide, we would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option at the top of the page, click “Add” and follow the prompts.
Welcome to KAS Gillian. It is always great to see a fellow South African here :)
