Squares are made and sent to KAS from all over the world. When they arrive, they must be sorted, packed into bundles of 35. Then they are given to the Gogo groups and KAS volunteers to be made into beautiful blankets. They are returned to the KAS workshop and finally travel in the KASmobile to be distributed to the children who need them.
This is why we are jingling our bells early in the year. We want our Christmas blankets to be ready in plenty of time for Christmas
Give free rein to your creative talents. You can make PJ’s, striped or appliqued squares.
Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer,
Make this Christmas the best yet for KAS’s 10th anniversary.
AND of course all toys are welcome to share the fun.
The PoM this month is the Alphabet crochet square.
Instructions and graphs can be found in the KAS pattern book.
Here is an "N" for NOEL to start you off.

These are both soooooo pretty, Linda, but after consideration, I have decided that the right one is my fave. :))
They certainly are pretty. I like both of them equally.
Beautiful! I love the edges you've added, bright, cheerful and full of texture. Great work.
These are so pretty Linda. It is amazing how many (or do you say how "much"?) creativity you always put into crochet!
Wow - just a couple of hours to go this month and here are my entries........ Some have not photographed that well as it was artificial light! The long one is actually a lovely powder blue and the multicoloured one it is the striped pattern that makes it look like it is standing out and big.........
GREAT squares, Rebecca. :)) Thinking my faves are the top left and second from the right, bottom row......though having said that, I also really like your variegated ones, too. :))
Thank you Rebecca for these lovely squares. They're going to look great in a blanket.
A great collection, Rebecca! Wonderful colors and stripes and variegated.
All this work Rebecca! Especially the 4 little squares with a candy cane corner. Nice!
Valerie, you have inspired many beautiful Christmas blankets for the children with your April theme. Thank you for hosting such a fun theme ... fun for the all the crafters who put their talents to such good use, fun for the volunteers who get to open the festive squares and items when they arrive in S.A., and especially fun for the children, who will be wrapped in the cheerful and bright beauty of Christmas warmth ... xo
Valerie, it has been wonderful thinking Christmas this time of year ans seeing the many ways of expressing Christmas in blankets. I have enjoyed the theme gallery so much. Thank you Valerie. Encore! Encore!
