I will double check, but I believe that was the Board's intention last year.
When the Post Office started charging the handling fees in July, I think the plans for the increase had to be put on hold.
on knit a square .com, gogos support it says 2 usd
I think Rhonda hoped for a raise to 1.50 but the funds really aren't there. I can see with the postal fees the appeal of the large distribution if it cuts fuel costs for a few months.
Our intention was to give the a raise to $2. In 2018 they were paid R10 per blanket. Starting in January of this year they are paid R15. Not much of an increase but what we can manage at the moment.
With the fluctuation of the exchange rate that comes out to about 1.25 USD at the moment.
Yikes, on February 12 the barn had no power for part of the day. Liz and Ann were happy sitting next to the entrance for light.
And Ronda was able to fill her arms with lots of blankets.
Athele enjoyed her cup of Jo.
And the others enjoyed theirs, too!
Thank you so much for the great pictures! It takes more than a power outage to stop a team of KASers, eh :)))
And there's that pattern again ... the knitted panel in front of Themba. Wonder who made it ... xo
It is a beauty...maybe Gloria made this one.
Oh Amy, if only I had!! Unfortunately, I cannot claim this one as my own. I love that pattern so much I may just have to make another one, though ... xo
I am just getting caught up on this thread after a long time away from KAS surfing... I think that panel is mine, made using a pattern that Gloria put us onto, and many others worked out as well. I used all their combined knowledge (yarn weight, needle size, ruler clipped to the pattern to stay on the right row) and gave the pattern a try. My knitting skills are only very basic, but I liked the result so much that I didn't stop after 8 inches, and just kept going until I had a panel the length of 3 squares. Thanks to everyone who helped teach me the fun of that short row pattern, and to everyone who liked the result.
Haha ... now that you mention it, I do remember you making that, Sharon. And you did a super job with it!! Thank you for clearing up that mystery for us ... xo
Awww....... great to see my parcel with the surprise goodies from my Mum has arrived so quickly! I'll be sure to tell her ASAP. Thank you X
