"Just listened to the podcast - are you sure you haven't been doing this for years, sounded so very professional! Lovely to hear you and put a voice to the face (usually the other way around, isn't it.) Can't wait to hear future…"
"These beautiful fellows are regular visitors to a bush outside our kitchen window, where we have a nectar-bottle feeder for them - now that we are confined to the house we have even more time to watch them and the other beauties that come along.…"
"I had hoped not to have to go shopping, as my husband is deemed to be 'high risk' and we have been self-isolating, but today I had no choice as we haven't been able to have groceries delivered. As we had a three day warning of…"
"Thanks Rebecca - we were due to see the St Petersburg ballet performing Swan Lake on Easter Monday and are very disappointed that it's not going to happen. But at least I won't have to wear my tiara for this one :))"
"Sorry, no photos as my squares, etc, were all packed up ready for posting just before we were asked not to send anything else just now, and they're going to stay packed! The parcel has two completed blankets and 40 squares."
"Oh,how frustrating, Gloria! The answer to your final question, in my case, is that I've had much more practice at ordering yarn - and also that it's a pleasure rather than a necessity :)) Stay well, and I hope you have…"
"Had to smile (sadly) at this, Gloria. Having never shopped for groceries online, I decided this was the time to do it and spent hours working it out, signing up and filling my virtual baskets, only to find two of the stores don't deliver…"
"No internet - again! - for the past week, just when we need it most, adding to the stress and anxiety. Problem now partially resolved, so my first treat was to catch up with KAS. All the positivity and humour here was just the tonic I…"
I have a pattern for the African Flower Ball. I can send it to you, but I found it on Internet under African Flower Soccer Ball. It was created to celebrate the World Cup in SA. If you can't find it ther, let me know and I'll send you my copy. It's only 5 rounds. You need 12 to make a ball the size of mine, which is smaller then a regular soccerball.
A warm welcome to Knit A Square from over here in Western Australia. :))
Knitting or crocheting 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. You are encouraged to knit/crochet in any stitch you prefer, but we do ask that they not be too 'lacy' as warmth is our highest priority. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone to all our blankets. These are single colour squares that are in garter stitch(knitting) 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 you can also find lots of patterns provided by our fellow KASers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist for 2016, you can see what items we are currently focusing on.

"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."
