I first came across Mochimochi's blog when Jean (at least, I think it was Jean: I can't find the entry now) linked to her mother-in-law's stash, and I was gobsmacked by her designs.
I'm not usually given to knitting toys; I've done the odd rabbit, but it's not a major interest. Anna's patterns are so offbeat and charming, though, that they're very hard to resist. There's a Flickr group for Mochimochi Friends.
I knitted some Grass, although I have to confess that I haven't sewn it and stuffed it yet; and I have bought the Rainy Cloud pattern and plan to knit it for the newest baby in the family, although I might do it in fluffy white instead of rainy grey.
Mochimochi is offering a Christmas deal just now, with a free reindeer pattern if you buy any of her patterns.
I'm not on commission; I just think they're lovely, inventive patterns.
Speaking of the newest baby in the family, she's arrived. Her parents were so sure she was a boy that they hadn't really thought of a name for a girl, but I'm sure they'll think of something soon. She weighs 8 pounds and she has strawberry blonde hair, so I think she needs a daisy hat. I'll just finish the Tilted Blocks Scarf first.
