"Nice seeing a fair number of solid squares, which are better for the blankets. But some of those squares I've seen elsewhere. There's always one isn't there "

"I think if Team SA thinks they are a bit scary for smaller children they will put them into blankets for older children.  :))"

"I am sure they will be OK. It is hard to comment without a pic. Do you have small family or friends you could ask?"

Greetings, late but sincere from across The Pond in the middle of snowy Canada! Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African Aids orphans. Glad to have you with us.  It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world.

The Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section) show the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I also recommend the Café KAS Discussion section, which contains the Our Furry Companions and Yarnaholics threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic!  Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!

Welcome from Shropshire Ailsa.  Always exciting to see a new KAS member in the UK. I hope we may see you on the UK forum and hope you enjoy helping us to keep the children warm.

Welcome Ailsa.  You can also catch-up with events and news through our monthly news bulletin KasSnippets :  This will provide a taster of what happens during a KAS month!


We also have two new videos which are work checking out :

Hello Ailsa, 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.

If you haven’t already, please read through the welcome message on the forum main page for helpful hints and things that might interest you. The FAQ category should answer any general questions you may have. If not, please ask.

Looking for patterns?  Check the KAS Pattern Book for garments and squares for the children.  We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old. 

Every month, we list the squares, beanies and tops that have arrived in South Africa. To find the ‘Squares lists’ please click the Forum tab [in the toolbar above] then on “Tallies/Item Count” for an up-to-date listing.

Click Here for a few tips for sending your parcel. Postal information is here.

KasSnippets has been e-published and I thought you might find it interesting to read. 

We have a challenge each month.  This is a fun way to try new colours, ideas or patterns. A theme is chosen, and if you wish, you may create something new and could be making a plain square using a new colour, a different stitch or trying a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting.  An 8”/20cm square is the perfect size for experimenting.

This month we are playing at the seashore.  Please join us at Sea, Seashore and Shells with your representation of a day at the beach

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 challenge month.  Many of us use sea-mail and find parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive. Whenever your parcel arrives, know it will be appreciated and 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.

We would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option at the top of the page and follow the prompts.

Enjoy !
