I along with so many, many others am shocked and saddened by the horrific events in Japan! At times like this it is hard to know what to do to help. Sarah London started Crochet-A-Rainbow in response to the devastating floods in Australia. The Christchurch earthquake has also been included in the project and now it has been extended to include the victims of the Japanese earthquake and following tsunami.

Sarah is asking for donations of granny squares which will then be made up into blankets to be distributed to those affected by these natural disasters, providing comfort and colour and a reminder that there is always a rainbow after a storm. She says she would like to inject some sunshine and colour into the lives of those affected as they begin to re-build and start over.

The granny squares are to be made up of five rounds, using either wool or acrylic double knitting yarn and a 4 mm hook.

If you would like to join in with Crochet-A-Rainbow, you can find all the details you need to sign up here.

As today is St Patrick’s Day, I would like to finish this post by wishing you all a very Happy St Patrick’s Day and I’ll leave you with this little Irish Blessing, the sentiments of which I wish for all of you but especially for the people of Japan!

May the strength of three be in your journey.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and as always thanks for ‘dropping’ in to see me this week.
