Erika’s Operatic Mochis

Erika is a carpenter for the Seattle Opera, and she’s also a mochimochi knitter! During rehearsals for Wagner’s Ring Cycle this July, she knitted up mochi-fied characters from the opera, using the patterns from Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi as a starting point.


Who could resist these three lovely Rhine Daughters and their magic gold?

You can see more, plus fun lego scenes from another crafty opera fan, at the Seattle Opera Facebook page. (And get a glimpse of Erika’s construction work at the homepage!)

  1. These are amazing!!! Wow!!!! And the work Erika does in her “day job” is equally so–I’ve been lucky enough to attend a Seattle Opera performance…though not the Ring. Anna, you continue to inspire us all!!!
