I still have a number of motifs, that needs to be connected. If you live in Japan and can help me with this, please get in touch. I can send you the motifs by delivery service. At the moment, I have enough motifs. Just looking for help connecting them.
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’.
This link is an article about the ‘Granny Square Assembly Workshop’ in Sapporo with pictures.
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.
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。
2 friends took on 50 motifs each and crocheted them into blankets. I had so many yellow motifs and thought a Yellow Series would look great. It turned out really wonderful. I was a bit worried using so many different motifs. However, the blankets look so amazing.
Last week we held a ‘Granny Square Assembly’ workshop in Shibuya. Many helping hands joint and connected motifs. Some people took more motifs home to make more blankets. The first I received already back.
Also the shop staff from Naito Shoji is busy making wonderful blankets. The total count now stands at 51 blankets, which is over 100 sqm.
It is really exciting to see so many blankets made from so different motifs.
On October 29th and 30th we will hold a ‘Granny Square Assemble’ workshop at the Naito Material Shop in Shibuya. I hope many of you can join and help us connecting Granny Squares into many warm and colorful blankets.
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 download our flyer for the workshop and send it to your friends.

A very talented crocheter from Saitama-ken took on 100 motifs. She made 2 beautiful blankets from them. I really like how she managed to put so many different Granny Squares and colors together. Each blanket looks, as if it were made from one person. The edging is absolutely amazing.
