UPDATE 6/21 – Wow, you all love your Mochimochi! Contest is now closed, we’ll choose a winner on 6/22!
I think it’s obvious to everyone who has seen my desk that I love knitted toys. Well, one of my all time favorite toy designers is releasing her first book on June 29th!
I’ve loved Anna Hrachovec’s designs for several years now – I actually didn’t start making toys until I’d been knitting for awhile and they are now probably one of my favorite things to knit. Anna’s patterns are so unique – I mean, my first (and still probably favorite) pattern I discovered by her was for knitted grass!
(His name is Mo by the way)
I’ve made several of her patterns now – many of them multiple times (lots of family and friends got Boos for Halloween one year). So when we got her new book in, Angela and I were dying over everything. We both had a hard time picking favorites.
But the Baby Gators sure are cute…
And how about those Pigs With Wigs!?!
There are just so many to choose from!
And best of all, Anna & her fabulous publisher sent us copies to give away! As much as Angela & I would love to keep them for ourselves, we want to spread the word on Knitting Mochimochi. So to be entered to win, leave a comment on this post and we’ll draw two names next week for a free copy! Good Luck!
