"Yes, Karen, I keep a database of my parcels (must be my secretarial background!). Sometimes I see items of mine in the KAS Barn before they show up on the Squares List so that helps me keep track of which parcels have arrived. Otherwise there's…"
"I've done it!
Joy, I found Christine's instructions very helpful but that was using my PayPal account. Perhaps you should think about setting one up as generally I find it an easy way to pay for things but I just got confused with the…"
"Thanks, Christine. I couldn't understand the comma because, in England at least, this would signify thousands of pounds whereas I wouldn't expect KAS to be anticipating donations of that size!
I'll try again."
"Thanks, Christine. I've just had a go but I don't understand why the comma is in amongst the noughts so now I'm not sure how to type the right amount. I'm feeling a bit of an idiot but I don't want to send way too much or…"
"OK. I've been consulting the conversion tables to work out comparisons.
I paid £4.99 for a 141 gram roll. Yardage isn't mentioned on ball bands here but I've looked it up on the website and this roll contained 215 metres (which…"
Thank you so much Patricia. I haven't been "visible" on the forum, but behind the scenes I was doing my "job"for KAS and we had a busy time here. I saw all the beautiful items that were made but wasn't able to comment, and naturally I missed the forum too. xo
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 K-A-Sers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist, you can see what items we are currently focusing on. http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/wish-list-2017
Clicking on the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page, will possibly answer many initial questions you may have .Any other questions...please ask...we love to help. :)) You can also find a packing slip (which goes inside the parcel) to send with parcels there.
If you'd like to see what other KASers have been making please click on the photo tab at the top of the page....and feel free to add photos of your creations...we would love to see them. Just click on 'add photos' and follow the prompts.
