Knit your own chunky sweater! Granted knits website launched! September 06 2013, 3 Comments
Hello knitters! We've launched a new site called Granted Knits - A place to knit your own chunky sweater.
Starting on the West Coast in late May, CBC Radio 3 host Grant Lawrence (wearing the official CBC X Granted sweater) will jump behind the wheel of a brand new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Fender Edition. Grant will roar across the country, from Vancouver to Toronto, interviewing and recording performances by many of your favourite bands at every stop along the way.
Each performance will be posted here on CBC Music, and a weekly best-of video highlight reel from the trip will air on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight on CBC television. Grant will also check in daily from the road on CBC Radio 3.
During what promises to be a thoroughly rockin' road trip, you'll have a chance to meet Grant for brunch in each city along the way, and have a chance to win a Fender guitar signed by every band and artist that crosses Grant's path on this epic voyage. Details to be announced soon.
What bands between Vancouver and Montreal do you think Grant Lawrence should meet up with? What are your favourite Canadian road trip anthems? What are the can't-miss roadside attractions between Vancouver and Toronto on the Trans-Canada Highway?
Support Canadian music!

Japan marked their second anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that left nearly 19,000 people dead or missing and has displaced more than 300,000.
This past weekend Japan Love Project partnered up alongside Pacific Rim National Park Reserve of Canada (Tofino), Environmental and Emergency Services (Ucluelet) and participated in the clean up of various tsunami debris that continues to wash up along parts of these shores.
On the final day, a moment of silence and a memorial service was conducted by the Mayor Ucluelet, Bill Irving. Many other volunteers and representatives were in attendance for the memorial service and in support of Japan. We are truly grateful for the assistance we received from both towns and local volunteers as they welcomed us with open arms.Japan Love Project, is a volunteer group that was started to help support the recovery of Japan after the 3.11 earthquake. Mostly student based, working alongside with BC JERF, Japan Love Project was able to raise a grand total of CA $328.050.02 through street donations and donation boxes at various Vancouver locations. Since then Japan Love Project continues to participate in events to show gratitude to those who have assisted and have come to the aid of Japan during these rebuilding times.

Driftwood- Handmade Granted sign August 27 2012, 0 Comments
Our artist friend Mr.Shiga made a wonderful handmade Granted sign for our showroom. With his artist skills and background he was able to create a sign that complimented the handmade aspects of our brand
It only took a piece of drift wood, wood varnish, nails, wool and imagination, from there he was able to make a regular piece of wood into something amazing. Take a look at some of the steps taken when building this wooden sign.
Local driftwood found along Vancouvers 3rd beach. The piece was polished and varnished with some antique finish stain.
Nails placed outlining our Granted font.
Finished logo with the placed nails painted white so they can bee seen on the drift wood. Kind of has a analog "Tron" like feel eh?
Our wool carefully placed within the walls of the nails.
Finished driftwood sign. All handmade just like our sweaters. Now it just needs to be hung up in our showroom!

Our wool March 15 2012, 4 Comments
Wool processing from our actual woolen mill in New Zealand.
From raw wool to finished roving.
Looking at sheep always reminds me of the nursery rhyme most of us grew up with. Did you ever wonder what it meant?
"Baa, baa black sheep have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir three bags full!
One for the master, one for the dame, one for the little boy that lives down the lane."
