"Lovely hats as always, Kathy. Gorgeous yarns, especially the brown & teal combination . It gave me some ideas to use more brown when knitting my beanies. Thanks again and again Kathy,I have learnt so much from you. "
"Thanks Anneke. It is a bit disappointing not to see your parcel in the list because does not contained squares, though. I also paid for handling charges on my last one. I know the task of recording every single item is monumental, which is greatly…"

Thank you for your lovely warm welcome Diana. I’ve been volunteering at KAS for about four years and have found it to be a weekly joy I look forward to ... the surprise of opening the parcels and being inspired by what I find to join together into the most gorgeous blankets. It is incredible heartwarming and we at KAS are deeply appreciative of communities’ contributions which make this all possible!
Hi, Diana .... thanks for pointing out that my latest package with blankets had arrived in South Africa. I saw them there this time, but often miss them, so I really appreciate the "heads up".
There were a couple of other photos that featured my blankets, although the text had them slightly misidentified. One said Barbara Bartlett, and one said Sharon Bartlett. I had to laugh, because people often misspell or mispronounce our last name, and Bartlett is one of the most common. But the first name mix up was harder to understand. I think they must have just unwrapped a package by someone named Barbara.... sure hope she got her proper credit.
The volunteers do so much hard work, and seem to do it with such joy. It really is a pleasure to see all the photos from South Africa.
It ´ll be my pleasure to be your friend, Diana. It´s nice to read I have inspired someone with my crocheted/knitted things. I think we inspire each other in many ways. I find very useful when I can only see your beautiful handwarmers, hats, squares etc. and read your supportive comments. Thank you very much.
