A friend has been so moved by the plight of the Japanese people that she has organised a website to encourage and co-ordinate the knitting and crocheting of blankets to be distributed in Japan. I started these blankets ages ago and as my husband really doesn’t like crocheted items in our house I can think of nothing better than to donate them to this cause.
You don’t need to knit or crochet whole blankets. You can either knit 6″ squares or crochet squares of five rounds in any yarn you like.
These are made from various oddments and I’ve now bought some lovely pastels for baby blankets. If you can spare a few minutes do take a look at the website and perhaps make a few squares yourself.
