THAT WARM FUZZY FEELING 2019

Opening days at the Knit-a-Square barn in Johannesburg happen on a Tuesday and are always rewarding. With mail arriving continuously from overseas, and quantities of squares and toys brought in by local knitters, we volunteers get to experience something like Christmas every week! This blog gives you a glimpse into what happens after your parcels arrive. I hope to paint vivid word pictures of all the goings-on and to share the warmth we feel when we receive your wonderful contributions. Happy reading everyone!being See More

"Thanks, Leanne, for that update. I read it and was almost there in the barn with you all for once. So interesting. What a fantastic pile of blankets! They look so colourful to see. Good to hear about the colours that are needed in the wools too.…"

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!

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.  :))
