About a month ago, I wrote about the KasCare Foundation's Knit a Square Challenge that I am participating in along with Laurie from Kitty's Fiber Journey. My output has not been phenomenal, but here is what I have knitted so far. Eight squares.
Every time I sit down to knit, within minutes Alfie wants to play. It's tough to be productive with sad dog eyes staring me down. You're just going to have to take my word that these squares are not as mis-sized as they appear in the photo. Are they all perfect eight-inch squares? Well, no. But they are closer than they look here.
The KasCare Foundation's Knit a Square Challenge is designed to provide blankets for African AIDS orphans. According to the KasCare web site, there are an estimated 14.8 million orphans in sub-Saharan Africa. Their 2012 challenge is called the Knit-a-squillion challenge. Their goal is to send 1.2 million squares to South Africa by July 10, 2012. The squares will be sewn into blankets once they are in South Africa.
