Knit-A-Square program was created in 2008 by a family to bring love and joy to the lives of abandoned vulnerable children and AIDS orphans of southern Africa who live in dire poverty.
The Rolling Hills Knit-a-square (KAS) group began meeting on June 17, 2010. Little did we know how much this group of women would accomplish. We’ve seen our squares being sewn into blankets, our hats and sweaters being worn by the children and even seen them wrapped in the blankets with a smile that makes you know your time was well spent.
Our group meets each Monday at 10 AM in the Fellowship Hall. We’re always ready for new knitwits to join our group. If you don’t know how to knit or crochet, don’t let that stop you as we will teach you. If you already know how to knit or crochet and are unable to make the meetings, feel free to make the squares in your free time and drop them by the church office. The squares need to be 8” square with a 40” tail left. Tools needed are: size J crochet needle or size 10 knitting needles and worsted weight #4 yarn.
Our project began in June of 2010 and as of December 2011
we have shipped 4250 squares to be made into blankets.
We have also sent sweaters, hats, vest, and slippers,
Help us with this global mission project.
Help send hope and warmth to orphans in South Africa.
We can use monetary donations to help with the postage and also to purchase yarn.
