I’m excited to be returning to the Ann Arbor District Library for a stop-motion animation workshop!
Join me at the Ann Arbor District Library from 2-5pm on August 10th for an afternoon of stop-motion basics and hands-on experimentation. It’s a free workshop open to all ages! More info at the AADL website.
(PLUS: If you’re into TV history, John Teti (my husband) is giving a talk on the lesser-known game shows of Alex Trebek at the library the night before!)
Just in time for the hottest days of summer, Cozy Squozy Cats are ready to be knit by you!
These pocket-sized cats are the purfect fit for their containers: knit a cat in a box 📦, a cat in a life preserver 🍩, a cat in a bag 👜, and (because cats are weird) a cat in a corset 🥜!
They’re just as cute outside of their containers, too!
(For the record, this is NOT the yarn that goes in the kits!)
More cozy cat GIFs are coming soon—watch for them on Instagram!
It’s a love story for Pride month!
You may remember these two from Valentine’s Day… In this expanded story, they overcome the challenges of climate change and oral hygiene to find true love ❤️
Did you know that both male and female walruses have mustaches AND tusks? 👨🏻👨🏽 These two happen to both be females 🌈
Thanks to John Teti for sound editing!
Want to know what the mystery preview kits from May were?
They were cats! Cats inside things!
I can’t tell you how hard it’s been to sit on this secret—these are seriously some of my favorite tiny knitted things ever. THANK YOU to everyone who took a chance on a little mystery—I hope you were happy with the surprise!
The cozy cat kits will be available in the Mochimochi Shop soon, but for now you can get them from a few local yarn stores: StevenBe in Minneapolis has a few, Yarn Social in Kansas City and Yarnify in Chicago all have some as of this writing. If you’d like to see them in your LYS, ask them to please get in touch!
Mystery preview kits are back all this month!
Through May 31st, buy any two kits from the Mochimochi Shop and you’ll automatically receive a mystery preview kit for free!*
Buy four kits, and get two DIFFERENT mystery kits for free! Buy six kits, and ALL THREE MYSTERIES will be revealed to you. For free!
And this year for the first time, you have the option to buy the set of all three mystery preview kits directly, right now!
What is a mystery preview kit? It’s a kit containing the pattern, yarn, and stuffing for an all-new tiny design. These are new, intermediate-level patterns that aren’t available anywhere else right now! You’ll just need a set of size 1 double-pointed needles and a tapestry needle to get started.
Please note that the mystery kits AUTOMATICALLY COME FREE with a purchase of at least 2 kits (or 2 books, or one kit and one book) through May 31—there’s no need to add them to your cart.
Want a hint? This year’s mysteries are basically the polar (or paw-lar) opposite of last year’s mystery kits. Honestly, they’re already up there with my all-time favorite Mochimochi Land designs.
When you receive yours, please keep it hush-hush if you can, so we can preserve the mystery through the end of the month!
(And of course, later this year the mystery kits will be unveiled and available individually.)
* Automatically means you don’t have to add it to your cart—we will be including the mystery kits with all kit orders of 2 or more.
