Michelle! I have been trying to find you since I dropped Facebook and then you lead me here. What a great charity to support so I joined and can finally send my squares somewhere worthwhile. But I do want to talk to you too.

Welcome to KAS Michelle and warm greetings from South Africa :)

Hello Michelle, so glad you have joined us. Keeping the children in South Africa warm has brought together a world-wide group of caring knitters and crocheters.

You might like the Monthly challenge.  This is a fun way to try new ideas or patterns.  Every month, a theme is chosen, and if you wish, you may create something new and different.

January’s challenge is Ronda's Winter Drive-Celebrating the Year of the Older Child.  It is so important that the children have warm clothing when the South African winter starts arriving in March/April. (Winter officially starts in June.)  We are focusing on children aged 4-9 years old. Using patterns from the KasPattern Book  which are designed for the older child, will ensure you send exactly what the children need to keep them the warmest.

If you are interested in joining any of our challenges, please note: Your parcel does not need to arrive in South Africa before the end of the month.  Those of us who use sea-mail find parcels take between 8-10 weeks to arrive. Thus if you mail a parcel by the end of January it will reach Ronda and the volunteers at the beginning of their fall/winter. But, whenever your parcel arrives, know that you are keeping children warm.

As always, making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still help the children.  Plain Janes, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of KAS.  Since it takes 35 squares to make one blanket, squares are needed all the time.

Hi  Michelle and a very warm welcome to KAS from Norfolk UK. We are a very friendly bunch so please feel free to ask any questions, there is always somebody with an answer, as I have found out!

Do take a look around the site using the tabs at the top of the page.

 

The pattern tab will take you to some wonderful knit and crochet patterns of items that are desperately needed. We are focusing on children aged 4-9 years old.

Using patterns from the KasPattern Book , which are designed for the older child, will ensure you send exactly what the children need to keep them the warmest.

 

The discussion Ronda's Winter Drive-Celebrating the Year of the Older Child  has an update of items needed.

 

The photo section has some wonderful pics of peoples work and when you feel ready it would be great to see some of your work but it isn’t a necessity to do this. It’s a great place for ideas and inspiration to keep the children warm.

 

You may also like to join the UK group, found under the ‘groups’ tab for lots of info and chat.

So glad you have joined us.  Happy knitting/crocheting  :)

Hi Michelle, Welcome to the KAS Forum. I hope you will enjoy being part of this friendly & lively community. Do you knit or crochet or both?  We now have our official KAS Pattern Book with all the garments and squares that have been found the most useful to distribute to the children.  Just double click on this link : http://forum.knit-a-square.com/page/patterns

 

For further questions click on the Forum tab for FAQs, How do I  or  KAS - Questions, Answers and Help.

 

Very glad Let's Knit Magazine directed to you our global knitting family!  Check out the Hello & Welcome Letter by clicking the "Main Page" tab above. There you will find all kinds of information about KAS. Another great section to look over is the Photo tab - everyone is so supportive of the work on display.
