Hajime no nitto! (First Knit)

ASHIDA Miki

[Japan]

A coming-of-age story about three middle school girls hand-making various things. Saho, a second year middle school student who moves at her pace and speaks Kita-Kyushu dialect, transferred in spring together with the northern march of the cherry blossom front. Living with her grandmother, one day she camouflaged a hole in her room’s paper sliding door with a color paper. Inspired, she founded the “handicraft club” with her be-friended classmates, Nami and Mai.
