Anna also has this book coming out in September of 2012.
As a member of the Common Cod Fiber Guild, I want to share the following information I found as I read up on Anna's work. Mochi Mochi Land was launched in 2007, and as Anna states on her webpage, "It is a place where knitted toys and people can live together in a spirit of tolerance". The whimsical and quirky humor of Anna's creations appear to be boundless. If you go lurking on her pages you will find a large assortment of patterns for zombies, pirates, snowmen, Sumo wrestlers and other amusing items. There are bunnies, fairies, princesses, mermaids, appliances, and items form nature which could be used to stage grand shadow boxes of creative ideas. Important to note: if you are not inclined to knit such wee projects on size 1 needles, they can be purchased as finished objects on Anna's web site.


Sumo vs Bowling Ball and Pin

Anna is the author of two books, with another to be released in September. She has also created many patterns. She blogs about her escapades and recently finished work at MochiMochiLand.

Zombies discover stash of hidden pharmaceuticals.
If these whimsical minis appeal to you, I urge you to go to the MochiMochiLand page and view all that Anna has to offer in the way of creativity and inspiration.


Of all of the images I looked at while researching this designer, I think these are my top three....

A great big thank you to Anna for the permission to use her images and links in order to share the MochiMochi powers with all of you!
