Help us to help you keep knitting!

With our tally of squares smashing past our original goal set in October last year we are now forced to turn creativity from squares into another… something?!

We know you love to knit.  We know you love to knit for a cause and for this we thank you for your support so far – it has been truly OUTSTANDING!  We would love to be able to use your knitting, crocheting and craft skills to further help the children around the world who are suffering from preventable causes.

So we want to ask for your help… what would you like to do to help support our programs?  what do you think would be a good way to support children under the age of five?  What would make them happy and put a smile on their little faces?

Have a think about it and lets get a discussion going.  Feel free to keep asking questions back and we’ll be sure to comment regularly. 

We would like to ensure that we include as many people as we can that have contributed to the Knit One Save One campaign to date – this means primary school classes, university groups, corporations, knitting and craft groups, social groups, CWA groups, retirement homes – oh, the list of supporters goes on!!

We really look forward to having ongoing support from crafties across Australia and keeping the smile on children’s faces around the world – we’re excited!

Australia loves knitting!

Well, its happening… the campaign is going so well we are going to have to start to slow down our knitters..!

With over 66,000 squares surrounding us, a campaign close date has been set.  Tuesday 31 August – the last day of winter, is when we plan to receive our last square to send to India, Cambodia and Laos.

Thank you to Dorothy Anderson from Queensland who has sent us this fantastic blanket with a lovely message knitted within.

And thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.  We are still accepting squares and blankets, so finish up your amazing creations and get them into us before the end of winter so we can send them overseas!

And if you know you’ve got those skills, have a sew!  We have plenty of squares that still need to be stitched together, so if you can get us the full blankets, then we will love you more and more…
