Luv-able & Hug-able Opening

It was a great opening at gallery hanahou last Thursday for “Luv-able & Hug-able!”

There were so many cute plushes there! I took home this “Snowflake” guy on the left, by Eerika Valkonen

And the little bitty bearded one at the top right here, made by Yuriko Sera:

Keighty Crochet was also there, and so was Katie Park—we talked knitted toy design, which is something I don’t get to do as often as I would like.

Check out more photos from the opening at the gallery’s Flickr page. And all of the plushes are now available online!

Here is the obligatory photo of me posing next to my factories.

I’m already starting to think about what I’ll make for next year’s show…

  1. This is fantastic! I love your work, it’s really amazing. I was wondering what kind of yarn you use for your tiny little creations, it looks fantastic.
    Thanks!

  2. Thank you, Tammy! For the factories, I used Lamb’s Pride bulky, and for the little guys going in and coming out I used Koigu fingering weight and size 1 dpns.
