今週のプロフィ—ル Profile of the Week

ヤーンアライブ水曜日クラスののうちみひろこさんです。わたなべさんは菖蒲田に住んでいましたが、2011年の東北大震災の津波で家を失い、今は仮設住宅にいます。彼女は2011年3月に公民館で水曜日のクラスが始まった当初から来て、今では毎週来るのを楽しみにし、いつも皆と楽しそうに話しています。鍵棒で好きなグリーンを使ってたわしを編むのが好きです。 Hiroko Uchimi is from the Wednesday Yarn Alive class. She originally lived in Shobuta which was wiped out by the tsunami in 2011. She now lives in Shiomidai which is near the temporary housing units that Yarn Alive meets in.  She started coming to Yarn Alive when the first Wednesday class started in October 2011. She loves coming to Yarn Alive and talking with everyone.  She prefers to crochet and loves the color green and making tawashi (cleaning scrubbers).


たわし ta-what?

たわし (pronounced ta-wa-shi) is a popular Japanese scrubbing brush to get rid of dirt.  This week we will be showing a few of our different kinds of tawashi crocheted from 100% cotton yarn.  These are scratch-free, and often used for dishes and small cleaning jobs. Tawashi: 1

These will be available for purchase in the UK this weekend.
