Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi Preview: Tiny Computer

I’m so excited to finally share some previews of my new book, Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi, which is coming out August 16th!

The first project I want to feature is one of my favorite inanimate tiny mochis, Tiny Computer.


He and his mouse haven’t spoken to each other since 1998, when the mouse mentioned something about a system upgrade.

Tiny Computer is one of the more complex projects in the book, but that’s actually not saying much when everything is about an inch tall—Tinys are all about simplicity. It’s knitted in three pieces, monitor, keyboard, and mouse, and then stitched together. Seaming takes only about a minute, of course! I think most knitters could probably finish the project in under three hours, with fast knitters coming in at under an hour.

I snapped this picture of my photographer Brandi Simons at work during our Tiny Computer shoot. It was fun coming up with simple props to show the scale of the tiny knits, and Brandi just happened to have the perfect mouse to go with our slightly outdated-looking PC.


I think Tiny Computer would make an excellent desk trinket or ornament for your favorite computer geek!

You can pre-order Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Then on August 16th, you’ll be able to find it in many local yarn stores, and signed copies will be available in the Mochimochi Shop.

Stay tuned for more previews!
