Profile Information

I've been a keen knitter for most of my life, starting as a reluctant ten-year-old in Housecraft class at school, then taking on all sorts of challenges in my early twenties, like cable-knit cushion covers and Kaeff Facet-designed garments. However, my gradual loss of sight through early-onset macular degeneration limited my access to patterns and I moved into knitting squares for charity in 2003. Finding KAS South Africa is thrilling for me as I've been actively looking for fellow knitters and a way to participate in something bigger than myself. I love what the organisation represents and applaud those who have made it what it is!

Hi Leanne.

A warm welcome to Knit A Square.....from over here in Western Australia.  :))
Your contributions to Knit A Square will be much appreciated. Thank you.  
Here is a link to our 2017 wishlist. These are the items that Ronda focuses on distributing to the children.
I notice that you are situated not far from the Knit A Square office. If you were interested in assisting Ronda and her wonderful team of volunteers or wanted to hand deliver your contribution, I know they would love to see you.
They are not open every day, but here is a contact phone number, if you wanted to arrange to drop off your contribution in person.   082 655 5150

 

Thank you for joining us.  :))

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"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.
