I just had to write this post!

Knitting for charity, you have 2 awesome things combined into one!!

I came across this website called http://www.knit-a-square.com/

These guys aim at providing warm blankets to the poor kids in South Africa… All they want from US,  people around the world, is to send them knitted/crocheted squares (8″ or 20cm)..These squares will be then woven by them to form blankets for the poor kids…

The squares can be of any pattern, but they should meet the required measurements…They also collect hats and garments…

Their goal for 2013 as quoted on the website:

We have a lofty goal for 2013:

350,000 knitted and crocheted squares representing 10,000 blankets. 
10,000 hats and 5,000 garments.  “

The website gives all the details.. The instructions for the project can be found here:
