More Granny Squares – もっとグラニー・スクエア

More squares arrived here at my place over the past days. Little by little the numbers are increasing. As I have quite an amount together I am now starting to look for people helping me to crochet them together.


Colorful hats and scarves – カラフルな帽子とマフラー

Tomorrow, I will send one more box to Tohoku. Included will be some colorful hats and scarves I had received recently.


More knits for Fukushima – 福島よりニット

Yesterday I sent another large box full of hats, scarves and other warm items to Fukushima. Today I received notice that it has arrived and will be distributed.


Many woolly hats from Australia – オーストラリアから多くの帽子

A gifted knitter from Australia has send me a bag full of woolly hats and some other warm items. The people at a temporary housing facility in Fukushima had asked for more knits, so the hats will go there this week.


Message from Fukushima – 福島からのメッセージ

After the box arrived in Fukushima, I have asked my contact there, if she could use more warm knits. She has send me the following message. I hope my translation makes sense. If you have any woolly hat, scarf, gloves or a pair of socks you could spare, please send it over to me. I am packing another box this week.

After the nuclear accident in Fukushima, many towns with large number of people have been evacuated.  One of such place is Okuma-machi and the people now are in a temporary housing facility in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, where there is a lot of snow.  Form the items you have sent I have pass on to people from Okuma-machi, and  there are still people who would like some items it is really helpful to many people.



Germany: Final Parcel No. 6 & 7 – ドイツから最後、第6&7の小包

Before sending the box of items to Fukushima I opened the last 2 boxes I got from Germany. More scarves, hats, neckwarmers and yarn. All are already in Fukushima keeping someone warm.
