Knitting workshop in Miyagi – 宮城県の編み物ワークショップ

Here are some pictures of the knitting workshop “Amimono Ochakko”( -it means ‘knitting tea party’ in Tohoku dialect) in Miyagi on April 8th-9th. organized by Mrs. Sato, who is running “Smile Knit“. She visited me a couple of weeks ago and we selected a large box of mainly cotton yarn for for her.

On the 8th Mrs. Sugimoto and her family made their debut as knitting instructors at a temporary housing facilities in Natori-shi (very close to Sendai Airport). I had introduced both ladies to each other last month and both immediately exchanged emails to set up a socks-knitting workshop. Mrs. Sugimoto’s 11 year old daughter joined and helped out as an assistant knitting teacher. About from 15 to 17 ladies living at the temporary housing facility enjoyed knitting socks for 3 hours. I had send them a box of yarn and other knitting tools, which will stay there keeping everybody busy for some time.

この写真は “ニットスマイル“を実行している佐藤さんから来ました。4月8日〜9日、宮城県で編み物のワークショップをしました。佐藤さんは数週間前に私を訪問し、一緒に綿糸の大きなボックスを集まりました。

今週の8日杉本さんと杉本さんの娘と一緒に名取市の仮設住宅で編み物先生のデビューを果たした。私はお互いに先月に両方の女性を紹介した、二人はすぐに靴下編みワークショップするためには、ワークショップを計画しました。杉本さんの11歳の娘がアシスタント編み物講師として手伝いました。仮設住宅に住んで約15〜17の女性は3時間編む靴下を楽しんだ。私はワークショップのために毛糸や針をいくつを送って、残った毛糸が、皆さんにしばらく忙しくなります。
