Hope this is okay to post here (a double posting), as I don't want to miss out on anyone hearing about this -- please do delete, our lovely mods, if not!

I'm announcing my blog's first KAL and challenge (http://anotherlongyarn.zinalee.net/?p=937), to benefit Knit A Square, which supports children made orphans by AIDS in southern Africa. We've got three lovely and generous designers (Lucy Neatby, Kristeen Griffin-Grimes, and Diana Troldahl) lined up to design 8" squares for stitchers to use if they like, and there'll be a drawing at the end of the KAL.

More details available on the blog here (http://anotherlongyarn.zinalee.net/?p=937) and here (http://anotherlongyarn.zinalee.net/?p=995).

It'd be lovely to have a few of you generous and wonderful Knitting Help stitchers along for the ride! Hope to see you on the blog! :muah:

Oh neat, I will definitely check it out!

Normally we don't like double posts, but in this type of case it's fine and lets knitters know about the project. :thumbsup:

Thanks, Jan, and, we'd love to have you! (If only so I don't have to do 20 squares myself! ;) )

The first designer squares (one knit, one crochet) are now up on the blog (http://anotherlongyarn.zinalee.net/?p=1132) -- they're gorgeous, and I hope you'll join us with a square or five!
