Hi Karen! A very warm welcome to you! I'm Gloria ... affectionately (I hope :) known as glo. From my home here in Eastern Canada I love to knit, crochet, and Tunisian Crochet.
A desire to share our talents by knitting and crocheting warmth and comfort for the children in South Africa warm has brought together a wonderful group of caring crafters from all over the world. You’ll find many of them here on our Square Circle Forum. We are delighted that you have joined us.
You can move around the forum by clicking on the various tabs above. Photos is where our crafters post photos of their work.
Helpful Hints, Shipping Instructions and Packing Slip is where you will find answers to many of your questions. Our KAS Blog is where Leanne Hunt brings the KASbarn to life for us through her words in That Warm Fuzzy Feeling Under Groups, you may find a group specific to your area or your craft. The KAS Shop is one place where you can assist KAS financially. 100% of every purchase of a downloadable item in the KAS Shop goes directly to Knit-a-Square to enable Ronda to continue our vital work!
If you are able to contribute financially, donations are welcomed at any time. Every now and then we run a fundraiser to help with the many expenses Knit-a-Square is faced with such as Rent on the KASbarn where our parcels are opened and sorted, fuel for the KASvan to distribute our blankets, and a handling fee of $3.75 US charged by the South African Customs and Excise for every parcel that arrives from overseas, regardless of size!! If I could offer you one good mailing tip, it would be larger parcels, fewer mailings.
One of the many great things about Knit-a-Square is the photos our volunteers in South Africa take and share with us - photos of our squares on the sorting tables - photos of our squares in blankets - and best of all, photos of our squares in blankets wrapped around the beautiful children! We actually get to see our work in action!
You will be welcomed into any of our discussions so come on in and put your feet up, grab your yarn and hook/needles and enjoy. You are among friends.
Knitting, crocheting or looming an 8" square or two, or possibly even a few is a wonderful gift for the children. They love to receive their blankets, created from squares, which come from kindly, caring folk such as yourself, from over 60 countries all over our world. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone of all our blankets. These are single colour squares that are in garter stitch or single crochet as they are very solid and provide a contrast to a picture/striped/patterned square or two that may be added to a blanket. By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page or our other square pattern discussion http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/member-s-patterns-squaresyou can also find lots of patterns provided by our fellow K-A-Sers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist, you can see what items we are currently focusing on. http://square-circle-forum.ning.com/forum/topics/what-our-children-need-2019

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
