So happy to hear that you gave yourself a tough challenge...making enough squares for more than 14 blankets. Even better that you are halfway there.

Wow - what a great challenge.
I have never attempted something so large but I did once challenge myself to make as many hand warmers as I could in just one month. I managed a Baker's Dozen (13).
That sounds like a great idea. I've never made hand warmers or hats for KAS, but I have a bunch of soft acrylic yarn that would be perfect for that. (I decided to use only wool for the squares, because it's naturally fire-resistant.) Is there a particular pattern you like?
Well, part of the fun of making stuff is trying different things. I'm getting inspired to make handwarmers too, now.
I’m looking forward to seeing your photos, Barbara. What a great challenge to set for yourself. I set myself a goal for one of themes in August 2017 to make 40 textured squares and completed it just in time. 250 is a great achievement so far.
Thanks, Marion. It's nice to be able to chat with other KAS knitters. Makes the whole thing feel less lonely, more like a community. That's why I think KAS is my favorite charity to knit for. Getting to chat with other knitters and especially seeing the photos of the finished blankets with the kids.
I regularly set myself a challenge to stop buying so much yarn. I fail miserably.
I tell myself it's a relatively harmless form of overconsumption. :-)
