Over the last couple of days since the terrible events took place in Japan and shocked every one of us, I have been thinking about my connection to Japan and what I could do. I didn't have to look far. I found the answers right before my eyes and in my hands. Most of my recent projects were knitted with Japanese Noro yarn.

the Lanesplitter skirts

and my Multnomah shawl

my wall organizer is Japan-inspired

I drink Japanese green tea with roasted rice

and my last fabric and appliqué purchase has Japanese elements, too.

And even if I can't do much, I can put a healing thought for the Japanese people and our earth in every stitch I knit with my Noro yarn.
We are all connected.
