About the Author
Anna Hrachovec launched Mochimochi Land (mochimochiland.com), a website and brand of knitted toy patterns, in early 2007. To design her toys, Anna draws inspiration from Japanese kawaii (cute) culture and children's illustrators such as Dr. Seuss. Her original knitted creations have been featured on The Martha Stewart Show and have been exhibited in galleries in New York, Seattle, San Francisco and Tokyo. In addition to her website, Anna maintains a blog (mochimochiland.com/weblog) and a Ravelry group for her fans (Mochimochi Land Lovers). Anna's first book of knitted toy patterns, Knitting Mochimochi, was published in 2010.

If you are looking for something to knit, note that some of these little things are a little fiddly (I mean the whole things are only 2" big, so what do you expect?!), and you definitely need to be an intermediate knitter to knit this tiny in the round with tons of increases and decreases, etc. It is totally worth it and they are beautifully and clearly written, but if you are a beginner, you might want to start with something a little simpler.
The projects were given as gifts (one made into a ring, one an ornament, and one for a dollhouse) and were fun to give. The recipients were all very pleased. Knitting tinies is a fun break from large projects and they make really good gifts. They are charming and make people feel special, but take surprisingly little time to knit.
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!
