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.
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.
2 members from my knitting class here in Hiyoshi have kindly helped and finished 2 more blankets. They even crocheted around. I know, it is not easy to connect motifs made from different material and gauge. They did a wonderful job.
Last week I packed around 4,000 Granny Squares into bags of 100. Together with Naito Shoji’s shops staff we are now making blankets of 5×10 motifs. They actually had to come with a van to my place to pick them up. Yesterday, already the first blanket was finished.
A knitting teach here in Hiyoshi and her students have kindly made 100 Granny Squares. The other day she brought me a large bag full of motifs. Some are made in the traditional way, others in fluffy yarn and many more in colorful designs.
