For My Friends in Japan


This ASTOUNDING entry was created by Kiyoko Yoshikawa of Kyoto. Positively famous in some international knitting circles for her amazing little book, FOOD KNITS, a few years ago Kiyoko turned her needles to knitting up animals - this one, for the sportswear company Descente.

Feeling utterly useless from this distance of thousands of miles, I virtually offer this extraordinary handmade penguin today in honor of all my friends in Japan – those I've heard from and know to be safe, and those from whom we are still awaiting word.  And much love and optimistic wishes to all.

:( Not the image, it's beautiful, but my heart is breaking as I watch the news.

It's been pretty devastating to watch, I agree, with no respite in sight...
