Opening October 7: Greetings from Mochimochi

Here it is, the official info for my show this October in NYC!


Greetings from Mochimochi

a weird world of fun and chaos hand-knitted by Anna Hrachovec

October 7 – 29, 2010
Opening reception: Thursday, October 7, 7-9 p.m. – RSVP

gallery hanahou
611 Broadway, Suite 730, NYC

In her first solo show, craft artist Anna Hrachovec stretches the possibilities of knitting as a medium to create an expansive and wacky landscape installation. Crash-landed aliens, rat-infested skyscrapers, giant ants, and everything else that comprises the 8-foot installation is entirely hand-knitted by the artist, who used 200 balls of yarn and more than a million stitches to make it all come to life. And just for fun, the piece includes a working model train – converted into a silly knitted monster, of course!

Some of the elements in the piece are based on designs in Anna’s 2010 book of knitted toy patterns, Knitting Mochimochi.


If you are in the NY area, please join me for the opening on October 7th!

  1. I was wondering, what are you going to do with your 8 foot town when the show is over? Display it in your living room?

  2. totally too cute!
    I read on Loops webpage that you were coming back home sometime in Oct.
    are you going to be signing books at Loops and teaching another class?
    And those tiny cows are too cute!!!
    Good Luck with the show!

  3. Thanks for the supportive comments!

    Knittedteacups and Tracey – I would really love to be able to display it somewhere else once the show is over, though pieces might be sold and would have to be replaced. Definitely something I want to look into.

    AuntSara- I’m going to do a talk at Loops on November 4th!

  4. Ooh, Anna, I love your city so far! The tiny cows are adorable and the mountain is terrific! :) Hope I can see you when you’re in town! Take lots of pictures of the show for me!
