Classes at Natural Stitches in Pittsburgh Sept 20 & 21

I’m headed to Pittsburgh next month for a weekend of knitting, photographing, and designing, thanks to the awesome people at Natural Stitches!

This will be my second visit to Pittsburgh, which I fell in love with during a brief visit in spring of last year. I’m excited to return—this time I hope to actually try the pierogies!

In addition to the classes (which should be super chill and fun (no expertise in photography or design needed!), there will also be a little meet & greet on Friday, September 19th. I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and hopefully meeting lots more PA knitters.

Check out the Natural Stitches website for more info and to sign up for a class or two!

Last Day For Free Mystery Kits

What’s on my needles right now? It’s a tiny mystery!

Today (July 31) is the LAST DAY to get a free mystery kit with purchase of any two kits or books from the Mochimochi Shop. There are three mystery designs available—so, order four kits/books to receive two of them, and order six kits/books to get all three. These are sent automatically with orders—no need to add anything to your cart.

And as I’ve mentioned before, if you’ve already received a mystery kit and would like to get one or both of the other designs, just shoot me an email (at info [at] mochimochiland [dot] com) and let me know which one you already have so you don’t get a duplicate.

The mystery designs will be revealed later this year (probably October) when the patterns are officially available in my shop. From what I’ve seen poking around social media, those who have gotten the mystery kits share my excitement about them—yay!

Tiny Sumo Buttons are Here

I love getting new pin-back buttons made! I just got 99 of these guys, and I’ll be sending them out with all shipped orders (books, kits, other buttons, and hand-knit items) until supplies last.

These are also the final days to get your mystery kits—Thursday (7/31) will be the last day to get one or more with your order! If you’ve already received one mystery kit and you want to pick up one or both of the other three designs, just email me at info [at] mochimochiland [dot] com and let me know which kit you’ve already gotten so that you don’t get duplicates.

How to Pick Up Stitches

Recently I’ve received several requests for a tutorial on picking up stitches—it’s a technique that I use allll the time, so it’s about time that I show it! (And it comes in handy for one of the mystery kits that I’ve been shipping around the world this month…)
