Lovely lady Cath put me on to a grogeous knitting site recently, Mochimochi Land. Run by knit designer and author, Anna Hrachovec, it allows you to follow the blog and buy unique patterns of weirdly wonderful and original knitted creatures. Inspired by Japanese designs and eccentric illustrators, Anna’s creatures are a smiling joy to behold – as the website’s tag line states, Let’s Make Happy!
There is a blog to follow, a shop and a developing ‘How to’ section which is wonderful for anyone starting out making knitted things. You can purchase the patterns, the creatures themselves of even Anna’s book by clicking HERE. I find some of her designs a little worrying, I’m not sure which depths of imagination created them. But most I find utterly adorable and plan, one day, on attempting one or both of the patterns shown here today.
