"Hi Kiwis, yes I am afraid it is really expensive and we can only send by airmail.  I think I calculated quite a while ago that large parcels work out cheaper than small. However our PO has had changes and it would be worthwhile to check again.…"

"Thanks Sue. Cost not too much of a problem just didn't want it to create a problem on arrival. It will be good to get the parcel away and then start on my next lot."

Philippa I missed your message. Unfortunately we can only send by airmail here. I am in Auckand and postage is a mission as it does cost a lot. You can ask at the PO about the most economical way to send. I think it might be with smaller parcels but I usually pack close my eyes and pay! They might insist on a value too so just put $1. Welcome aboard it is a great charity to support so friendly and you know that what you do goes to where it is needed. fairly rare in charities these days.

Hi Philippa.

A warm welcome to Knit-A-Square....from over here in Western Australia. Its great to see another member from this part of the world.  

Making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and help the children.  Plain Janes, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of Knit-A-Square.  Since a blanket is created with 35 squares sent by people from around the world, squares are needed all the time. The basic square being a garter stitch/single colour or striped square or I think it is single or double crochet  if your preference is for crochet. By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of other patterns provided by our fellow KASers.  

Please check out the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page as this may answer many initial questions you may have and will help you get started. Any other questions...just ask...we love to help.  :))

Here is a link to postage information, including our packing slip that we attach INSIDE our parcel to assist in the unpacking/recording process at Knit-A-Square in S. Africa.

Just click on 'add photos' and follow the prompts. Anything you care to make and send will be so appreciated by Ronda and the team and the children of South Africa.

If you want to see the most active discussions at present, you may like to click on the 'main page' tab and they are listed in the centre of that page...just pick one and click on it. It is a large website, but with so much fun and info.
