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.
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.

Now ‘The Granny Square Project’ is entering the next stage. After collecting over 9,600 motifs, we now have to make them in to blankets of 5 x 10 Granny Squares. Over the weekend, Ms. Kinoshita from Naito Shoji took several hours and made the first blanket. It is a great example of what I envision for the other blanket and a great start into the next stage. I am sure, it will keep someone warm in Tohoku.
This week Friday, I will be again live on TV Kanagawa at their program ‘Arigato’ to present on “The Granny Square Project”. I will bring many of your beautiful squares to show on the program, so you might see your motif on TV.
Over the past month I received many more squares and I now find the time to take pictures and post them here. The project is going well, but I still need a lot more squares. So please keep sending them in.
The Ravelry group ‘Monthly crochet for charity‘ has kindly volunteered and sent me 2 large envelopes with 68 beautifully designed Granny Squares. What a unique idea to crochet the Japanese national flag.
