OK, they’re definitely not mean, but I can’t resist a rhyme!
I love these Feet Eaters made by Miki, another fantastic tester who helped me with the patterns for Knitting Mochmochi, along with many other patterns.
Yesterday was an exciting day for me! First, my advance copy of Knitting Mochimochi arrived!
This is me hugging it. (Please excuse the messy hair. To be honest, I was too excited to take a shower.)
It’s so surreal to see the real thing, bound and with that new book smell and everything. I reeeally want to share some pictures of the inside. I will as soon as I can!
But that’s not all that happened yesterday. My chaotic workspace also appeared on the CRAFT blog for all the world to see!
Natalie at CRAFT invited me to be interviewed for their “Make Space for Crafting” series. The above photo was actually taken last year, and the feature shows a comparison to what my desk looks like now that I have yarn-obsessed cats in my life. And basically the interview is just me blathering on about cats cats cats. Thank you Natalie!
Can you believe it’s May already? It’s about time I put this new springtime cross-stitch pattern in the Mochimochi Shop!
I mostly worked on this pattern back in January, when springtime was just a pleasant dream, so I’m excited to finally release it! I think everyone can use some cute flowers and a little chaos and destruction for their wall.
The pattern, comprised of charts with symbols for colors, is available as a PDF download for $7.
Plus! If you buy the pattern before the end of May, you can get a big discount on it through CRAFT—see the details on the offer on the CRAFT blog. Thanks, CRAFT!
I’m very excited to announce that I have a new pattern in the current issue of Craft magazine!
For their Play issue (which hit newsstands about a week ago), it’s a reversible chicken and egg!
The pattern is super-easy, and the issue is packed with lots of other fun play-related projects.
Thank you to Arwen at Craft—she was awesome to work with on this!
This takes the Valentine Cake!
She also had a similar idea as Be yesterday and whipped up some “Hearty Flowers” to dance around the base of the tree.
If this doesn’t win you over for this much-maligned holiday, nothing will!
