Today we had our 2nd workshop to connect more Granny Squares. Many supporters joint us at the Yomiuri Shinbun headquarter. We managed to finish 2 complete blankets. Last week one of the ladies took a blanket home and brought back today. So we have 3 more blankets ready for our world record attempt in September.
The Japanese newsagency Kyodo News distributed an article about “Knit for Japan” and our Guinness World Record attempt on September 20th in Ishinomaki. A newspaper in Miyaki Prefecture and Fukushima Prefecture picked up the article and ran it in their newspaper. Also the MSN Sankei News published the article online.

Today we had the first of 2 workshop to assemble more Granny Squares into blankets. A good number of helping hands joint us. We managed to almost finish 2 more blankets. Each will add another 2 square meters to our final Guinness World Record.
The next workshop will be on August 26th at the Yomiuri Shinbun headquarter. Please join us to add some more square meters to our record. I am looking forward to see many of you.
2 month ago I applied to Guinness World records for our attempt to make the worlds largest blanket. Today I received notice, that they have accepted our application. Now we are one more step on our way to set a world record here in Japan.
I am pretty sure, we can break the current record. If you still like to help to push the level higher, please make a blanket and send it to me.
Yomiuri Culture is hosting an exhibition at the new head office in Otemachi. The exhibition opened yesterday at the gallery on the 2nd floor. Until September 13. ‘Knit for Japan’ is displaying motifs and blankets.
