It started when Katie Bradley, tortoise rescuer, came across a turtle with a doily on top of its shell. Amused by the idea, she started crocheting tortoise cozies for her seven tortoises. Little did she know that her handiwork would be a hit among tortoise owners. Here’s a clip of her work modeled by her tortoises.

Knitting and Crocheting to Cope with Disaster a Year Later
Posted by Mylynedj in Knitting in the News on March 11, 2012
A year has passed since the Great Northeastern Earthquake and Tsunamis of 2011 which I blogged about here. More than 3,000 are still missing and more than 100,000 who remain displaced are now dwelling in temporary housing built by the government. Among these are a handful from the fishing village of Shichigahama, Japan who meet every Tuesday night to knit and crochet. This group, called “Yarn Alive,” organized by missionary Teddy Sawka help these women cope with loneliness and disturbing thoughts about the past and of the future. Watch videos here and here.
