Spend the afternoon with Anna Hrachovec - famous Brooklyn knitter, fiber artist and creator of the amazing Mochimochi Land world of tiny knitted toys, creatures and spectacular installations.

Mochimochi Land was launched in 2007 as a place where knitted toys and people can live together in a spirit of tolerance. The characters that inhabit Mochimochi Land are Anna's original designs. Anna finds inspiration in Hello Kitty, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, and illustrators like Dr Seuss and Mary Blair. Anna's knitted toys have been featured on The Martha Stewart Show, all around the web, and in print. The website also features Anna's books, kits, and downloadable knitting and cross-stitch patterns. Printed Mochimochi Land patterns and kits are also available.

When she's not designing patterns to share with fellow crafters, Anna creates character-based fiber art, which has been exhibited throughout the US, Europe, and Asia. You can also see her art at
