How-Tuesday: Petite Pencil From Mochimochi Land
Published on Sept 28, 2010 in Make
Photo by Knitting Mochmochi
Baby gators, pigs with wigs, and human beans, oh my! Anna Hrachovec's new book, Knitted Mochimochi, is abuzz with the cutest and most unusual critters of the knitted variety. Anna is the Brooklyn-based designer and craft artist behind Mochimochi Land. Her work is a lovable fusion of humor, Japanese kawaii elements, unexpected scale, and good old fashioned hand-knitting. She currently divides her time between designing knitting patterns, like the one she is sharing with us today, and creating more complex one-off knitted pieces for her upcoming solo exhibition, Greetings from Mochimochi Land at Gallery Hanahou in New York City. (Scroll down for full details on her art opening.)
Take note, with the help of this week's How-Tuesday project, you can sharpen your knitting skills and make a little gift for a writer friend. As the author says, "There's never been a dull moment with this humble no. 2."
