Knitting Mochimochi has now been out for just about two weeks, and I’ve been overwhelmed (in a very good way) with all the attention it’s been getting in knitting magazines and around the web! That will probably all quiet down pretty soon, but in the meantime, here are two more nice features, both of which involve giveaways of the book!
CRAFT has been a very big part of my life since I started knitting toys in 2006. Not only do I turn to their blog every day for crafty inspiration and amusement, but they have also been instrumental in my design work. They featured my knitted toys online way back in early 2007, when I first began blogging, and since then they’ve published three of my patterns in addition to regularly featuring my designs.
So now I am thrilled that Natalie at CRAFT has just reviewed Knitting Mochimochi on the CRAFT blog!
My favorite line from the review:
This book is a perfect companion for the summer knitter as you could finish a cute project in no time (beach knitting!) and hand it off right away for a child or child-at-heart to enjoy.
Along with the review, Natalie asked me a few questions about writing Knitting Mochimochi—it was fun to share some thoughts about it with her. And CRAFT is giving away two copies of the book! To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment over on the review post on the CRAFT blog by noon PST this Wednesday.
Another two-book giveaway is also underway at Kathryn Ivy!
If you’re not already a reader, Katheryn Ivy is the website of Alice and Grace Schnebly, sisters who share their knitting expertise through reviews of books and yarn and their own line of patterns. They also have both test knitted patterns for me, so they are extremely familiar with my designs. (Check out these gorgeous Pile-able Pups made by Grace!)
I was really happy to be interviewed for their blog, especially because they asked me such great questions, including “What is your personal style?” (For years I had been secretly wishing someone would ask me that question someday!)
They’re also giving away two copies of Knitting Mochimochi, one through their blog and one through Twitter—check out their post to find out how to enter. (The deadline is noon PST this Friday.)
Thank you to Natalie and CRAFT, and thank you Alice and Grace!
