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:
• 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!
• My mom’s gonna be there too!
Thank you, everyone, for your entries in the 10th Annual Mochimochi Photo + Video Contest! Yes, somehow this really was the 10th annual contest!
Today we’re pleased to announce the 12 Honorable Mentions in the photo portion of our contest, and very soon we’ll have the big vote on the 12 finalist photos. We’ll present the videos next week.
So without further ado, here are your Honorable Mentions! We loved these entries and are excited to share them here. See the full images close up after the jump!
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!
It’s time for the 2016 Mochimochi Land holiday pattern: Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi Nutcrackers!
They may look fierce, but these little guys are only 3 inches tall and 60% hat. The pattern comes with instructions to knit a perfectly average-sized walnut!
This pattern comes FREE with any purchase of $5 or more from the Mochimochi Shop through January 1st! No need to add it to your cart—a link to download the pattern will be emailed to you within 24 hours of your purchase.
Make them for everyone on your nutty and nice lists!
And keep an eye out for a nutcracker-themed animation coming closer to Christmas…
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!
