I'm excited to announce that my new book, Adventures in Mochimochi Land, is now on sale everywhere!
Well, it's not on sale in the UK until later this summer, but it's available all across the US at least!
As I've mentioned before, this book is really special, becuase it's a combination storybook and pattern book in one. In the stories, a giant donut tries to eat a city,
sea creatures hold an underwater election,
and a balloon falls in love with a blimp.
The patterns are, of course, for the characters and props that you see in the stories, so for knitters it can be an interactive experience.
You can see more images from the book here.
I'm very pleased to announce a new Mochimochi Land solo exhibition opening Saturday, May 23rd at Everyday Mooonday in Seoul.
This show will be different from my previous solo ventures—instead of one installation, it will comprise knitted gnomes in a variety of forms—two-dimensional, sculptural, gnomes depicted in scenes, and stand-alone gnomes in unusual forms. There will also be a large collection of "gnome diplomats" knitted and crocheted by people all over the US and other countries.
Here is my introduction to the exhibition.

More photos from the show will be coming once it's up!
I’m excited to share an official trailer for my new book, Adventures in Mochimochi Land!
So that's a little taste of the fun that’s coming June 9th. You can also read a preview of the first story in the book here.
Adventures in Mochimochi Land is coming out June 9th! It’s now available for preorder from Amazon, from Barnes & Noble, and from Powells, among other places. Signed copies are also available for preorder from me in the Mochimochi Shop. Or if you have a local bookstore or yarn store that you support, please ask them if they’ll carry it!
Thanks to Maureen Boyle for putting the trailer together!
