This week, Alison interviews Anna Hrachovec, author of the books Knitting Mochimochi and Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi. Both of these books are filled with fun, brilliantly imaginative and innovative toys to knit, with the second book focusing on super-small scale toys that can be knit in only an hour or two! These teeny-tiny toys are often only an inch tall and use only a few yards of yarn. Anna chats about how she began knitting, what her creative process is for coming up with ideas, how she translates her ideas into a finished toy and why she is so drawn to knitted toys. She also runs the website and blog, mochimochiland, where you can find more of her designs and read about her weekly design challenge in which she comes up with new and clever tiny toys.
