Bright, vibrant colors. The colors of Africa. I am sending these  8″ wool squares today to South Africa where they will be lovingly sewed together, along with other squares made worldwide, to make blankets for the abandoned children and AIDS orphans of South Africa. The winters in South Africa are bitterly cold. So, a family in Australia started this wonderful organization to make and distribute blankets with the help of the hard working volunteers of the Soweto Comfort Club.  They started in 2009 and received more than 30,000 squares in the first 6 months. Read about this wonderful organization at www.knit-a-square.com. Better yet, pick up your needles and knit a couple of squares. It will warm your heart as well.
