Mochimochi and hoochie hoochie.

Yesterday, we were wow'ed by the wonderful Anna Hrachovec, knit toy designer extraordinaire and creator of mochimochiland (pronounced mo-chee not mokee). Anna is in town from Manhattan for a friend's wedding, and agreed to teach her first-ever workshop right here at little ol' Loops! Everyone had a marvelous time and made great progress on Looper, the knit-and-felt toy that Anna designed exclusively for us!



Anna is teaching another class this Saturday from 1-3, and I'm planning to attend. Last I checked, we still had a couple of spaces left. Call the store at 742-9276 for details. If you can't make the class, Anna is doing a meet-and-greet at 3pm. Also, we got a big bad shipment of Cascade 220, with brand-new colors includidng some of their new hand-paint colors, so there are lots of hues to choose from for your very own Looper. I think I'll make my DD a pink one :)

Now, on to the hoochie hoochie:


The Boredom Buster Bootie skirt from the book Romantic Handknits is complete! However, I don't think I'll be wearing this to client meetings, as originally intended. The lace is just a tad too revealing. I think it's going to be best for dates with my hubby in very dark restaurants. I think the problem was my chosen yarn was so stretchy, it didn't block and stretch like the corn-based yarn called for in the pattern. But it WAS a really fun knit (thanks, Annie Modesitt!).

Last but not least, we received our first order of a brand-new line of bags that I've been wanting to carry for quite some time. It's an American-made line called Atenti, and we're carrying the Overnighter bags – which will hold several projects at once – plus the matching "cosmetic" bags - great for notions.


And my personal fave (this will be a sleepover bag for my daughter):

Also, OSU fans, we have a great orange bag on the way! Look for a new order coming next week.
