If you’ve been following this blog, you’ve seen peeks at the three stories the book contains, about a giant donut who tries to eat a city, sea creatures who hold an underwater election, and a balloon who falls in love with a blimp. You can also knit adventures of your own with 25 patterns for the characters and props that appear in the stories.

Projects include tiny desserts, tiny sea creatures, tiny things in the sky, and much more! (See them all on Ravelry).

The stories are appropriate for all ages, and the projects are recommended for intermediate knitters. (Illustrations and tutorials for beginners are also included.)

So much work went into this book—as I’ve said before, making it was really my own adventure in Mochimochi Land. I couldn’t have done it alone, and I was so lucky to have the help of a brilliant editor, a very resourceful tech editor, a fantastic team of testers, a couple of hardworking sample knitters, and a photographer who did a heroic job. Thank you to Caitlin Harpin, Marilyn Passmore, and Jessica Chace, Joan Foster, Amanda Scruggs, Yvonne Spencer, Joan De Lurio, Rikke Jensen, Linda Sewell, Brent Perrotti, and Brandi Simons.

Adventures in Mochimochi Land is now available online (in ebook and paperback) from Amazon, from Barnes & Noble, and from Powells, among other retailers. Signed copies are also available from me in the Mochimochi Shop. (Supplies are limited due to preorders, but I’m getting more soon and they’ll be shipped ASAP.) Or if you have a local bookstore or yarn store that you support, please ask them if they’re carrying it!

Now, let the adventures begin!

  3. I preordered my book and received it on 09Jun2015. I love it!!! I have already identified items that I will be making. I was curious. There were a few items that did not have corresponding patterns like the ballons. Will those be released at a different time? Thank you so much!
