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.
More squares arrived here at my place over the past days. Little by little the numbers are increasing. As I have quite an amount together I am now starting to look for people helping me to crochet them together.
A gifted knitter from Australia has send me a bag full of woolly hats and some other warm items. The people at a temporary housing facility in Fukushima had asked for more knits, so the hats will go there this week.
After the box arrived in Fukushima, I have asked my contact there, if she could use more warm knits. She has send me the following message. I hope my translation makes sense. If you have any woolly hat, scarf, gloves or a pair of socks you could spare, please send it over to me. I am packing another box this week.
After the nuclear accident in Fukushima, many towns with large number of people have been evacuated. One of such place is Okuma-machi and the people now are in a temporary housing facility in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, where there is a lot of snow. Form the items you have sent I have pass on to people from Okuma-machi, and there are still people who would like some items it is really helpful to many people.
Today I will send off another large box to Fukushima. It is still pretty cold here. Last week it snowed and the ground is still frozen. The knits I got from Germany will go to Fukushima this afternoon.
