Last weekend I got to do one of my absolute favorite things: bring a piece of Mochimochi Land out into the world!
The mochis are now at work and play in the window of the Robot Supply & Repair Shop in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which helps support the nonprofit writing center 826michigan. At first glance, it looks like a typical day in Mochimochi Land, but the robots are taking over in this scene!
This mochi mischief was made possible by the Ann Arbor District Library, who invited me to bring my knitted world to the city as part of their summer game. Ann Arborites should keep their eyes peeled for a few more mochi displays around town.
I also gave a talk at the downtown library on Sunday as part of my visit. I was so happy to have a great turnout to share my story with. The talk was videotaped, so I’ll post that when it’s available.
Big thank-yous to the Ann Arbor District Library, 826MI, and everyone who came to the talk on Sunday!
