End of last year I had sent 2 large boxes of Granny Squares to a great supporter in Hokkaido. Last week I received the first 20 blankets back. Each one assembled with great care. A feast of colors and yarns. Each blanket is labeled and named individually. To all knitters, who helped making the blankets, a big ‘Thank you’.

I received more finished blankets. Take a look at the white one. But the colorful blankets are wonderful too.
Over the weekend I did some stocktaking and we have now received 122 finished blankets. 35 are in progress and 12 more were promise. I still have 2 boxes of Granny Squares that need to be connected. We definitely will make the world record, so if you like to be part of crochet history, take on 50 motifs and connect them.
On February 21. and 22. I will hold a ‘Granny Square Assemble’ workshop at the Yomiuri Culture – Handcraft Fair in Hamamatsucho. I hope many of you can join and help us connecting Granny Squares into many warm and colorful blankets. Entrance is free and you can see many other interesting craftspeople.
For those who are busy, please take some Granny Squares home to make a blanket with your family or friends. I would also be happy to hear from crochet clubs to help us make more blankets. Please visit the following link for detailed information.
Last week I received a wonderful blanket from a crocheter in Saitama. She read an article about ‘Knit for Japan’ and decided to help. She made 50 Granny Squares. Her mother then connected them into a great blanket. Her son later helped to write an English letter for me. A real family blanket.
One of the members of my knitting class also finished another blanket. Her husband is a very creative gentleman. He decided the position of each motif. Last weekend both came over to my place. We selected motifs for several themed blanket. I can’t wait to see the results.
先週、私は埼玉県にいるのかぎ針編みをする人からの素敵なブランケットが届きました。彼女は「Knit for Japan」についての記事を読み、支援することを決めました。彼女はモチーフ50枚を作りました。彼女の母はその後にモチーフを会わせました。息子は後に私のために英語の手紙を書くことができました。本当の家族のブランケットになりました。
A great supporter of ‘Knit for Japan’ in Hokkaido held a ‘Granny Square Assembly’ workshop at the Moulin rouge yarn shop in Sapporo. I had sent her over 1,000 motifs ,ast month. Many helping hands joint and connected motifs. Seven women cooperated and made three pieces of blankets. Some people took more motifs home to make more blankets. You can see more pictures here.
A big ‘Thank you’ to all, who participated and still work on making blankets.
