Fun, isn't it to communicate with knitters and crocheters around the globe? I've had a penpal in Australia for more that 50 years and we've never met...have spoken on the phone a few times and now we email!
Hi Stella. I mostly do knitting too. I am not very good at crochet - some people do crochet work for KAS that is awesome! Plain garter stitch is so useful and works up thick and warm for the kids. Happy knitting!
I hear you Stella, I love doing garter stitch for all my knit squares...it works up thicker than regular knitting and I haven't mustered the courage to do purling yet. pwawk pwawk...big chicken me eh?
Stella I usually do plain squares too. If I'm feeling particularly daring I use variegated yarn that changes the colors for me. Ronda says the plain jane, or solid color squares are the backbone of Knit A Square. Often they are what ties the blankets together when a lot of patterned squares need to be fitted together. :)
Hi Stella, Greetings from Vancouver on the Pacific Coasst of Canada. Do you knit or crochet or are you one of those talented people who do both!?! The photos pages are great to look at for inspiration. Plain squares are called "the backbone" of KAS I've read, so they will be so very welcome for the children and every square counts so much. Welcome to KAS. :)
Greetings from across the Pond in the middle of snowy Canada, Stella. 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!
Yes, I love to see where people are from...not ever having flown/travelled, seeing the names of different towns/cities and what country they are in is my travel fix/education...lol
Welcome to KAS...from over here in Western Australia.
