Last week I got a review copy of Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi: More Than 40 Itty-Bitty Minis to Knit, Wear, and Give by Anna Hrachovec, which is due to be released next week, on August 16.
I can sum up this book in one word: adorable.
Need proof? Check out this photo at the bottom of the Acknowledgements page.
The book starts with a nicely detailed techniques section with plenty of photos:
It covers all the techniques you need to be able to knit these tiny gems.
The patterns temselves are divided into sections: Tiny Animals, Tiny Edibles, Tiny Humanoids, Tiny Inanimates, Tiny Naturals, and Tiny Holidays. Here’s one of my favorites from the food group:
There is a section entitled Tiny Possibilities, with lots of ideas for what to do with your tiny knits:
And in the back there is a section with basic knitting techniques.
I am, of course, sorely tempted to keep this copy for myself, but I know there are many of you who would put it to better use than I. So I will offer it up for a giveaway.
To be entered in the drawing for this adorable book, leave a comment on this blog post by Thursday, August 11, 12:00noon EDT. I will do a random drawing from among the comments that afternoon and announce the winner in my Thursday blog post.
Today, Lucy plans to help me with my knitting.
