A knitting group from the beautiful city of Franklin – New Hampshire has send some time to crochet 64 Granny Squares and several cute woolly hats. I truly enjoy to see all this beautiful colors and yarns from so many creative people.
On March 9th 2012 TV Kanagawa broadcasted a program for the first commemoration of the Tohoku Great Earthquake and Tsunami. They have kindly included ‘Knit for Japan’ in it. During the program they called one of the temporary housing facilities, who received many of the hats and other warm items you all knitted.
今年３月９日は東北地方太平洋沖地震の最初の記念になります。テレビ神奈川では、そのためのプログラムを生産しました。TVKはその中に”Knit for Japan”親切に含まれていました。プログラムの間に、皆さんから作った帽子が届いた仮設住宅を電話しました。
More yarn and hats arrived. All in beautiful colors, which should make nice hats or socks. The other day my mom had send me a book with different ways in knitting socks.
I tried out a way in knitting socks sideways. This is pretty easy and I thought it could make a simple way for people to knit some socks.
It has been raining here in Yokohama since last evening. All cherry blossoms have been washed of the trees and many streets on my way home are all pink. This is just the right weather to spend an afternoon knitting, maybe some hats or socks. The same must have thought a Japanese lady, as she has sent me a bag full of hats and other warm knits.
Over the last weeks I had received many baby and kids items. Last week I got in contact with a gentleman, how runs a NPO for local temporary housing facilities in Iwate. Today I have send him a large box of baby and kids knits he will distribute to families at different facilities.
From the US I received a very nice parcel full of warm hats and some knitting yarn. Each item had a label saying “Hand knitted with ♡ by …”. It is so nice to see, how much care and love knitters spend from around the world to help the people in Tohoku.
