Dear Gayle,

Ronda has expressed the need for a newer vehicle to transport squares and blankets. Helen Flagg has proposed to the US Group that we raise funds to help KAS purchase a car. The idea has gone global and there is an initiative on the forum about it. Check the latest ezine video at:


To visit the US Group, click on this link:


Also, The Humble Stitch Project has offered to ship all squares received in Florida by Dec 15th to South Africa for us for free.  Check out their offer and the address on the Forum in the US Group.

Hope to see you there!

Hi Gayle,

The calendar is available at :

It is a good deal.  For a one time donation of $7.50 you can download the calendar and print as many copies as you wish.  (Though an extra donation would always be appreciated :-)

We are having a snowstorm today so I will be inside by the fire.....with my crochet hook and yarn !!!

Gayle I just heard from Sandy that the first $500 from PP arrived back in May, at least she believes she mentioned it back in the May Ezine. Also Beth Moriarty has been on the KAS discussion boards here and she is like head honcho of PP. Sandy says no bulk arrival from Planet Purl yet but the last she and I heard was that PP was waiting to make a big bulk shipment.

Gayle, send me your email address and I will email the file to you directly -- you can use the Inbox here on the forum. It's a .pdf file, that you can then open up and print the full sheet. I just posted a picture snapshot of what one looks like.

Hope that helps!

Hello, Gayle! I am a 3-hour drive from the horrible flooding in Nashville and middle Tennessee. I'm in Knoxville in East Tennessee. Thanks for the welcome to this group. It's been fun reading about other KASers and seeing what they've been up to. There is certainly some real talent out there in the knitting ocmmunity! I also love the amount of newcomers who have learned to knit as a result of this call for the children!

Hello Gayle
thank you for your lovely comments on my group. You certainly do some wonderful knitting for KAS. Yes I love the 'makes my heart want to sing' song too. Keeps my spirit up listening to it.
God bless

Hi Gayle, thanks for the lovely comment about my hats. They were done on a loom. It's so easy and relaxing, no need for a pattern and you just change colour when you run out of yarn or get bored of your current yarn - what can be easier.
Happy birthday for tommorrow.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow, Gayle. Hope you have a lovely day. Angela x

Thanks for your lovely compliment, Gayle !
The little teddy bear is so easy to do I think I will do a few more. Way back when I was still teaching I was given 2 classes of 12 yr old girls and told to teach them to knit and sew - a total nightmare in the beginning. But after a couple of months their faces were a picture when the were able to take their completed teddies home. Admittedly their teddies were bare bears - just sporting a dashing scarf ! Jen xx
