I just got this yesterday and I love it! I have her other bookKnitting Mochimochi: 20 Super-Cute Strange Designs for Knitted Amigurumi and they are both wonderful. This one has designs that are way tinier, though! It's so worth it. Her designs are adorable, well-done, and just too cute. The book itself is clever and visually pleasing, the directions are simple, and there are a lot of how-to pictures. I wish she had more books out!

I love this book! I've already made five little toys, and have countless requests pouring in :) Well written, good illustrations, and it includes all the little basics and background knowledge for the beginning knitter. The patterns are easy, if a little fiddly (but that is to be expected when working on something so small...) and they take such a small amount of yarn and time. There are so many cute patterns! This book has rocketed to my favorite knitting book in the couple of weeks I have owned it!

I ordered the digital version of this book and I absolutely love it! I've only had it a little over a week and have already knitted 4 items! All of them are cute, quick to knit, and a perfect way to use up little bits of yarn.
The book calls for fingering weight yarn and also lets you know you can knit them at other gauges. I knitted most of my projects at worsted weight - so adorable!
So far I've knitted the mermaid (love the seashell bikini top), the fish with bubbles, and some cupcakes.
Thanks for all the clever knitting ideas!

Knitting these little toys is like eating potato chips.. you can't stop at one.. you will want to keep going and going. At first I was not sure what to think when I tried knitting one of these tiny knits. I started with "Knitting Mochimochi" Anna's other book and was instantly hooked on knitting human beans. These little things are a lot of fun to make and don't fret if you don't have really thin yarn, go up to a size 2 or 3 needle and use a thicker yarn.. the items are still really cute and really small.. just not quite as small as when you use a size 1 needle. I have made these with up to a size 4 needle with a worsted weight yarn.. and the items are still cute and tiny. My 7 year old loves them.

I can see why this book got a 5 star rating from so many people! I had seen these designs online but didn't fully appreciate the concept of knitting "teeny tiny" until I actually saw a copy of the book and looked through all the pages! If you can knit with double pointed needles (US 1) with fingering weight yarn,you will find these projects to be very doable. I had always wanted to learn how to knit 3-D objects that start off with a very small number of cast on stitches (4-6) and could never figure out how it was done until I saw this book! The instructions are super awesome (detailed step by step directions with large photos). That is what made me really want to buy this book as reference, however, the teeny tiny designs really started to grow on me as well and there are a few in particular that I really loved like the teeny tiny cupcake! I had purchased a toy knitting pattern where all the legs and arms are knitted in separate pieces and grafted together and thought this would be a great way to learn those techniques with only a 1 hour commitment of time so I could become familiar with the techniques before making something bigger in scale. The author says most tiny's can be made in an hour with scrap sock yarn, so that was a big appeal to me. I also loved her idea of turning these teeny tiny's into charms for your keychain, zipper pull etc. I didn't like all the designs but there were enough in there to really fall in love with the whole spirit of knitting teeny tiny, how playful these little critters are posed, having fun and getting into mischief. A bit of advice. If you don't already own sock or fingering weight yarn, you can buy "mini skeins" for $1.75 each of a very high quality fingering weight yarn called "Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light Samples" online.Read more ›

I've made two of these tiny creations so far and everyone loves them. Good clear directions and illustrations. I did move up to size 3 DP needles and that worked fine. I'll be coming back to this book over and over as time passes.
We even put a little bird on the Christmas tree.

If you like to knit tiny things, this is the book for you! From hot dogs to gnomes, and chickens to Christmas trees, this book has a great selection of patterns. The instructions in the patterns are clear, there are many photos demonstrating assembly, and wonderful ideas on how to use your new creations. They are quick to knit and require only a little bit of yarn. You can sit back with your dpns and leftover sock yarn (or other fingering weight yarn) and have a new little friend within the hour.

I have been knitting and giving away these tiny knits, and they are always a hit! They are even great to give to fellow knitters because not everyone loves knitting tiny things, but everyone loves to receive them.

I love this book! I checked it out from my local library to flip through it. I haven't knitted in a while, and I had never used four double pointed knitting needles before. But the tiny mochimochi were too cute to resist! So I picked up some double pointed bamboo knitting needles from Amazon (Clover Takumi) and stopped by my local Joann's to grab some yarn, and started knitting.

The directions are amazingly clear, which is great for a beginner like me that constantly needs reassurance that what I'm doing is correct. I love that she has really clear pictures. However, I did have to check YouTube for some double pointed knitting tutorials, since I'm used to only knitting with two needles.

For absolute beginners, she has a "knitting essentials" section at the back of the book. Even though I'm somewhat familiar with knitting, I still found it very helpful.

I started with the chicken, the first project. It took an entire afternoon and I messed up a lot, but it was worth it. The body shape of the chicken is very forgiving. At the end of the day, I had a cute chicken keychain.

This book is perfect for people who have short attention spans (like me). The fact that you can have a finished project in your hands in a matter of hours is very cool. (My project-attention-span lasts only three days.)

OVERALL, highly recommended. Five stars for the crystal-clear directions, pictures, and five stars for the cute projects.

/\/\/\EDITED 8/28/2012/\/\/\

As another reviewer said, most of the legs/arms/tails are i-cords threaded through the body of the project. Since the stitches are so tiny, it's extremely difficult to get the i-cord through without fear of ripping the stitch or messing it up. I took one star off for this...I think it could be done in an easier way.
