If you’re going to be anywhere near NYC this weekend, I hope you’ll get yourself to the Marriott Marquis in Times Square for Vogue Knitting LIVE.

Here’s the rundown of Mochimochi Land goings-on:

• You can join me in a group knitting project—we’ll be making as many FellowSheep as we can all weekend, sponsored by Lion Brand!

• Check out a small display of classic Mochimochi characters and animations!

• I’ll be in the art gallery area of the marketplace all weekend signing books and selling kits at a special price, including exciting NEW kits that you can’t find anywhere else yet!

• On Sunday there will be a tiny ninja hunt in the Marketplace! Each person who finds a knitted ninja will win either a copy of Adventures in Mochimochi Land or a tiny ninja kit.

• My mom’s gonna be there too!

Contest entry by Kelly Lynn Smith

The deadline for the 10th Annual Mochimochi Photo + Video Contest passed a couple of days ago. We’re thrilled to see so many fun entries from all of you mochi makers! I’m glad that we extended the deadline because it seems that many more people were able to participate as a result.

Because we’re getting into heavy holiday season now, we’ll be making the contest announcements in early 2017. Stay tuned!
