KNIT-A-SQUARE WISH LIST 2018
Over the years Knit-a-Square has grown rather organically and kindhearted members have been sending an ever increasing variety of goodies, but it has become essential for Knit-a-Square to have an appraisal and re-evaluate its whole approach in order for the office team to comfortably handle the number of items arriving.
In future Knit-a-Square will ONLY be able to distribute squares, assembled blankets, hats, hand-warmers and cuddly toys. All other items, as mentioned below, will be distributed through a third-party and not directly by KAS.
The focus for the coming year, and for some time to come will be :
Squares for blankets - Hats & Hand-warmers - Cuddly Toys
In order to make life easier for the office team we need the following assistance :
HATS & BEANIES
ADDITIONAL ITEMS THAT ARE WELCOME
GENERAL POSTING & PACKING NEEDS
BONA FIDE GIFT
NO COMMERCIAL VALUE
MANY THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT
AND CARING HEARTS!
I have been knitting dolls for Uthando project for a few yrs now but as I also have been doing the squares for here and are now putting them all ready to post one each pay day, I was wondering if these dolls would be suitable for older children . I have 4 girls at the moment ready to go.. they are a little larger than the teddies I see here... what do you think...
Yes please Elaine ! The Uthando project has lovely toy patterns. Georgia Efford gave KAS permission to use the patterns for the children in South Africa. We have posted the patterns here: http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/uthando-project-patterns
Would you post a photo in the Teddy Bear Picnic January theme? We would love to see your 'girls'.
Will do , I could't find the folder with the photo in when I posted this so will head there now.. I have modified a pattern for a book on dolls.. I found lots of errors and also the dolls were not long enough in the body and I had to redo some of the jumper patterns as well .. If anyone is interested in making these lovely dolls, I will sit and type out the patterns and post them.. I may take a little while.. although it shames me to say not the 2 yrs I have had all the toys and squares, but the Lord has been on my case lately and I have a dear younger (and healther) friend who is helping me tye ends, and fill in your labels.. All going well they should be posted one a fortnight from next Thursday, God willing.
