Welcome Sonya! I'm a KASer from the USA near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A neighbor of ours is living in NZ now and really loves it. His photos of the landscape are fantastic. My daughter-in-law and her family are all members of LDS and my son has converted. Their wedding was an LDS service. So glad you joined us!
Welcome to Kas, Sonya. I've got cousins in Aussie land just across the water from you. I'd love to visit New Zealand sometime, it's beautiful.
I find KAS such a rewarding cause to be involved in and I hope you enjoy it too. Do check out the New Member Guide which is found by clicking "Main Page" in the header above. To reach the Discussion Boards my route is click on "Patterns" in the header above, then click "Squares" in the bit that pops down, then on that page click on "All Discussions" above the page title, top left side, in light blue italics. Works for me, convoluted though it is. Any questions just PM me. :) Welcome to Knit A Square! Direct from our hands to their hearts, a win-win.
