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.
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.
On August 20th and 26th we will have workshops to connect motifs into blankets. Download a flyer.
For our final event on September 20th in Ishinomaki to connect all blankets into one large piece, we are looking for volunteer. If you like to join and crochet yourself into history, please let me know.

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 February 21. and 22. I will hold a ‘Granny Square Assemble’ workshop at the Yomiuri Culture – Handcraft Fair in Hamamatsucho. I hope many of you can join and help us connecting Granny Squares into many warm and colorful blankets. Entrance is free and you can see many other interesting craftspeople.
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 visit the following link for detailed information.
