CraftSanity Episode 122: Greetings From Anna Hrachovec’s Mochimochi Land

On this episode of the podcast you’ll hear from Anna Hrachovec, a 29-year-old Brooklyn-based artist who really knows how to bring her knitting to life.

The author of “Knitting Mochimochi: 20 Super-Cute Strange Designs for Knitted Amigurumi,” Anna has gained a reputation for knitting humorous and quirky designs from pigs with wigs to intricately detailed knitted landscapes. Anna says her fun designs are influenced by childhood exposure to Dr. Seuss books and time spent living in Japan where “cute” is a celebrated part of the culture.

Anna is featured in the first issue of CraftSanity Magazine along with her super cute Teeny Tiny Mochimochi Snowmen pattern. (Who knew it was possible to get addicted to knitting tiny snowmen on size 1 needles?) Tune in to hear her story and find out what would lead a woman to knit a bunch of lemmings jumping off a cliff and other fascinating tales from Mochimochi Land.

And be sure to visit Anna in Mochimochi Land and get in on the free pattern with purchase holiday deal she has going through Jan. 2. You get a free Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi Santa PDF pattern with every purchase of $5 or more from the shop on her website. So go check it out.

Thanks for keeping up the podcasts. I’m a freshman in college with ambitions to create my own handmade small business, and listening to your podcasts offer not only helpful tips, but encouragement. Thanks for reminding me that there are other crazy crafters like me out there trying to share what they love and make a living off of it!
