Tiny Thanksgiving Patterns are Here

tinythanksgiving_announce1

It’s mid November—time to move on from talk of walls (at least for now) and start building bridges made of butter and carbs. Thanksgiving is coming!

In Mochimochi Land, we’re giving thanks for the little things with some sweet and savory new projects that you can make much more quickly than an actual Thanksgiving dinner. Knit a tiny turkey, tofurkey (or fruitcake, if you prefer), mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie for a miniature centerpiece that will delight your cool cousin Rita and confound Uncle Ernesto.

The pattern collection is available as a PDF download for $6 from the Mochimochi Shop. And take half off with the code THANKS through 11/27!

Let me also take this opportunity to thank all of you who have been a part of Mochimochi Land this year with your knitting, your commenting, your sharing, your purchases, and your crazy mods. It’s a privilege to share this world of knitting with you! And if you’re new to Mochimochi Land, welcome!

Make Love in the Dark

This is about all I have to say (and do) this week.

The Return of Tiny Turkey and Tiny Tofurkey

Look who’s back!

Now that it’s November, tiny turkey and tiny tofurkey will be taking the place of tiny Trump and tiny Hillary on the debate stage. And check this out—they’re agreeing on something today!

Once this election is finally over, there will be patterns for these guys!

Happy Halloween from Leo the Lion

My first attempt at a homemade Halloween costume has not been a hit with Leo, but at least I got one cute picture before he ripped his mane off.

Happy Halloween!

Interview: Angela Tong

angelatong1

Angela Tong and I go way back—she’s actually one of the very first people who tested a Mochimochi Land pattern! That was when we both lived in New York (she’s now in New Jersey and I’m in Chicago), and also before her career as a teacher and designer of elegant, attractive knitwear and accessories took off.

Like SpillyJane, Bonney Teti, and Knit Picks, Angela is a sponsor of the 10th Anniversary Mochimochi Photo + Video Contest—winners will receive PDF packages of her designs. I hope if you’re reading this, you’re working on an entry! Read Angela’s interview and then get back to work!
