As another busy year of Mochimochi Land comes to a close, let’s take a look back at some of the fun stuff that happened!
In February I shared some progress on my design for an arcade mochi, the Ann Arbor District Library started offering Mochimochi Land patterns as digital downloads to their cardholders, we got to see ice-skating giant squids…
…and two lumberjacks fell in love.
March was kind of unremarkable, but April brought inspiration in the form of View-Master dioramas.
In May I interviewed Julie Lindsey of Happy Go Lucky Yarn, my photographer Brandi Simons ironed a wall, Super-Scary Mochimochi got published in Korean, and I came out with the pattern for my arcade machine—now known as Quarters!
In July I learned how to make pom-poms and the gnomes had a firecracker that was extremely slow to go off.
We saw Soupy try out a mustache in August.
And as if that wasn’t enough, we squeezed in some singing walruses just in time for Christmas.
I’d say that was a pretty good year in weird knitted toys. Thank you all so much for being a part of it! Here’s to another magical year together in 2015!
