As the world is still reeling from the tragedy that struck Japan, crafters are gearing up to raise money to benefit the people of that country.
The generous staff over at Mason-Dixon Knitting has done their part by designing a wonderful new knit blanket pattern, the proceeds of which will be donated to help out Japan Relief.
The pattern is called The Mitered Crossed Blanket and sections of it are pictured above and below. Because the blanket was designed in response to the crisis and not preplanned, there is no completed photo to post. Additional photos will be added to the website as more sections are completed.
If knitting is your thing, please click right over to Ravelry and go make your purchase right away. The cost is $5.00 and your contribution will help, in a small way, to normalize the lives of the Japanese people.
If we, as craftsman, each do what we can, we can begin to make the lives of the Japanese people a little easier to bear.keep looking »
