Let's Knit a Ball Pit! 

Group knitting project alert!

I'm asking knitters and crocheters everywhere to help me knit a ball pit with personality! Imagine swimming in a pool of soft, squishy knitted balls, each of which is also an individual character swimming along with you... The concept is a playful, interactive experience that brings joy in every step of the process. 

The ball pit will debut at Vogue Knitting LIVE in NYC this January, a great venue because it will be full of knitters who will appreciate the time and love that went into making the ball pit possible! I hope to collect enough balls to fill a small pool that attendees can actually take a little "dip" in. Then after VK LIVE, we're donating all of the balls to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, who will then send them to children in Congo, Uganda, Kenya, and Zimbabwe.


This wonderful arrangement was made possible by Ladianne Henderson of Cheers To Ewe!, who is also now the project sponsor!

I'm accepting balls through January 3rd, 2019. The full information and free pattern is available at mochimochiland.com
