As you know, Sarah and I love everything Japanese, so we were especially thrilled when we recently won a copy of Knitting Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec from Rachael over at Rachael Rabbit. The book promises 20 Super-Cute Strange Designs and it sure delivers! There are so many cute and wacky Amigurumi projects – it is hard to decide which project to knit up first – the Bite-Free Bed Bugs, the Confused Moose or the Cuter Polluters to name a few.
Here are a few projects from the book.
If you are looking for some quick and fun knitting projects, you won’t be disappointed with Knitting Mochimochi. You can find it at the Book Depository (currently AUD $20.51, including free shippping).
It has been a while since I have knitted any toys. When I searching through my yarn and knitting needle collection last night, I came across a Jean Greenhowe knitting book – which reminded me of the last knitted toys I made, some 12 years ago.
Here are the Clowns I made my children when they were young –
and the Gardener.
They reminded me of how much fun knitted toys can be. I am off to buy some double pointed knitting needles this week, then I can get started on some Mochimochi. Thanks so much Rachael for a wonderful giveaway:)
