KNITTING AND KIDS

Making an 8" square can be a daunting task for a kid learning to knit! My 11 year old grand-daughter, Maddie, wanted to be part of this project, so we had her knit 3 ½ or 4" squares, - much more manageable for this age group. Then I added crochet edges to bring them up to the 8" size. Since she like to work with variegated wool, and since I have a stash of many colours and could pick up the various colours in her squares, the result was some very pretty squares, a nice “partnership” between us, and a sense of accomplishment for her. So far we have made 3 squares together.

Let’s see if we can get our “Kanuck Kids” knitting too!

SPREADING THE WORD

Amazing how talking about KAS to anyone who will listen has the effect of producing squares!

I introduced the project to the Women's Auxilliary at our church a couple of months ago. Several members are now knitting for us and the group will pay for the postage when we have amassed a big pile of squares.

And even better, these ladies are telling friends from other churches! Yesterday, I had a call from a lady who attends a very small church in a nearby village. Amazingly, this church has a knitting group which was started by their female minister (I think the group has 10-12 members)! They have been making prayer shawls and doing hats for other charities, but they are going to check out the KAS website and will most likely jump on board. This church has a lovely idea - the minister makes it a habit to hold a small "blessing service" in front of the whole congregation during the Sunday service, before any of their knitting is sent away. That way, the whole congregation is aware of the charity and has the opportunity to join in and/or spread the word even further!
