Lots of cute amigurumi – カワイイあみぐるみがたくさん

The other day I got a box full of cute amigurumi. I am sure they will make lots of kids happy.



Yarn, Needles, Amigurumi – 毛糸、針やあみぐるみ

Over the past days I received several parcels from the US and Japan. Knitters have send me beautiful yarn and a lot of needles and crochet hooks. On knitter included several cute amigurumi, which will make some kids smile.


Year of the [knitted] Dragon – 「編んだ」辰年

According to the Chinese calender, 2012 is the ‘Year of the Dragon’. The Chinese New Year is symbolized by a new animal zodiac, determined by a 12-year cycle. Last year was the Year of the Rabbit. But 2012 welcomes a more commanding beast — the Dragon. It is considered the luckiest year in the Chinese Zodiac.

Those born under the sign of the dragon are regarded as innovative, passionate people who are colorful, confident and fearless. A Japanese knitter (and I guess she must be a dragon herself) has sent me several cute knitted dragons.


4 more boxes for Tohoku – 東北のためさらに4箱

Today I packed 4 more boxes with your items for Tohoku. One is going with a lot of hats, socks, scarves and amigurumi to a children’s center in Iwate.


2 boxes also with hats, jackets, scarves, wrist warms and many of the knittings I got from Aomori are going to a tsunami center in Iwate.


The last shipping is for a family of a friend with 3 girls, who lives in Miyagi and has lost their home.


Including these 4 I have now sent a total of 21 boxes to various places in Tohoku. Keep knitting, there are still a lot of people in need of some warm hats, scarves or gloves.


Box No. 3 – 箱 第三

45 woolly hats, 26 pair of socks, 10 scarves, a lot of crocheted flowers, 4 amigurumi and 1 jacket –  that’s what I found when I opened box No. 3. So many beautiful items, made with a lot of love and attention to detail.

Woolly hats, yarn and amigurumi – 帽子、毛糸や編みぐるみ
