Some Not-Crappy News

9/2/20 Update: August’s funds ($150) are going to Co-Prosperity Sphere’s Bridgeport Community Kitchen. Thank you!

7/31/20 Update: $1,660 raised for Chicago food pantries to date!
The portion you helped raise in July (just over $200) went to MASK (Mothers Against Senseless Killing) for their August baby supplies pantry drive. Thank you!

🐦 First, thanks to your Bluebirds of Crappiness pattern purchases, we raised another $430 for Chicago food pantries in June. That makes a total of $1,455 raised in two months! I’m dividing this month’s proceeds between Care for Real and I Grow Chicago. ⁣⁣

🐦 And second, now people who don’t knit can purchase a Bluebird of Crappiness made by me! Each bluebird will have its own unique colors and hairdo. Half of the proceeds from sales of these knitted bluebirds will go to Chicago pantries.

Thank you for helping us support our Chicago community!

Cozy Squozy Cats!

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!

The intermediate-level pattern collection is now available as a download in the Mochimochi Shop or via Ravelry.

Plus, box cat, bag cat, and life preserver cat are also available as kits! Each comes with a pattern and enough yarn and stuffing to make one cozy cat. 🧶

As Soupy will tell you, July is an excellent month for getting cozy.

(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!

Floss and Brush your Walrus Crush

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 knit a tiny walrus of your own? Check out the pattern and kit available in my shop!

Reaction GIFs for GIFMAGAZINE + LINE

GIFMAGAZINE, a Japanese clearinghouse for GIFs, recently commissioned me to create four original GIFs for use in the popular LINE messaging app. They asked me to make “reaction” GIFs that would aide in communication. I was thrilled to oblige!

With Thank You gnomes…

Sorry pandas…

Cheer Up computers…

And OK!

GIFMAGAZINE has been promoting the GIFs—here’s a GIF they made to highlight my GIFs. I’m in GIF heaven!

(The above shows how you can find the GIFMAGAZINE options in LINE—this is helpful, becuase it took someone showing me how to do it before I understood.)
