Jumbo Gnome Reads a Book

My first copy of Huge & Huggable Mochimochi has arrived! Before I could take a look, though, somebody snatched it out of my hands.


Jumbo Gnome isn’t much of a reader, but this book is right up his alley. He’s actually the guy who inspired the whole idea to write a book of really big toy patterns, so I let him have it for a while.


He gives it 4 out of 5 stars, but only because he thought he should have been asked for a quote to go on the back cover. What an ego this guy has!

Myself, I’m excited for the 20 all-new, super-sized patterns and the fun photography by Brandi Simons. The release date is October 15th, but in the meantime I’ll have some sneak previews soon, along with out first-ever pre-sale of this book!

  1. I am so jealous of Jumbo Gnome-can’t wait to get a copy of the new book into my own hands. Does a pre-sale of the book mean that we can get a copy of the book before October 15th? My hands are just itching to start on the new projects!

  2. Can’t wait!:) I need to save up my money to buy the book ,but also to buy some bulky yarn because I only have three smallish balls.:( Athough they are nice color they are not the colors I need. I think that squid will look good in deep dark blue.

  3. Sue, a pre-sale just means that people will able to order a signed copy in advance, and it will be shipped on the release date. So you’ll be one of the first to get it, and you don’t have to remember to check back on October 15th!
