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.
This morning I packed 3 more boxes for Tohoku. One is going to the temporary housing facility in Iwate. I am sending them more shawls and scarves. The other one is for Fukushima and quite large. I had a number of cardigans, shawls and other warm items, which should still be useful. The last box is the first one for a temporary housing facility in Miyagi. Some of the residents want to knit and were asking for yarn and needles. All should arrive by tomorrow.
A few weeks ago a colleague told me during a conversation, that she is originally from Iwate. Her parent’s home was completely destroyed during the tsunami.
Her parents are fine and now live in a temporary housing facility. My colleague mentioned that her mom was looking for some woolly hats. So last week I gave her a few. Her mom was so excited and asked, if it would be possible to get a woolly hat for each resident at the temporary housing facility, which are currently about 200 people.
Wouldn’t it be great, if we could supply a complete facility with wooly hats? What I currently have is a lot, but I need some more. If you have a spare moment, please cast on for a hat and send it over to me. It will make a lot of people very happy and give them warm ears over autumn and winter.
