KYC Presents: Mochimochi Land

Written by Sarah. Posted in knits, KYC Presents, new york city, photos, toys

Happy Friday everybody! First things first, I want to let you all know that Knit York City is now on Youtube. I think it’s a little more accessible which means that I would love for you all to like the videos, leave comments, and subscribe to my channel!

It’s been a little while since I got to meet with the lovely Anna Hrachovec. When I started looking for designers to include in this series, I was delighted to find out that Anna and I live and work in the same city! I’ve been a big fan of her adorable toys for a while and I think they are just so unique! I love her photographs and her gifs always crack me up!

I hope you enjoy the third interview in the series! Without further ado, here’s Anna!

Big thank you to Anna for letting us into her workspace and pulling out all of her toys! (There was a lot of squee-ing, you can imagine.) Also, these videos could never happen without the support of my girl Ashley and my man Jon! Thank you both!

If you love Anna’s designs, you should check out the photo contest that’s happening over at her blog right now! The deadline for entries is December 3rd!

I’d love to hear what you think! Don’t forget to like and subscribe!

ps. I’ve been writing a lot about the Subway Knits Sandy raffle but I wanted to mention that all profits from the hand dyed Fable Fibers Etsy this month will go toward Sandy relief. The yarn is beautiful! You should definitely check out the shop!

KYC Presents: Ysolda Teague

Written by Sarah. Posted in knits, KYC Presents, movies, photos

The time has finally come! I’ve had a hard time keeping up but the second short is finished! A lot of really wonderful knitters were involved in the finished short and I wanted to say here a huge thank you to all of you. It is so awesome to talk to people that love to knit and I find it so amazing that are willing to lend a hand on that basis alone.

My goal in this series is to really get knitters to meet, in a sense, the people behind their yarns, patterns, shops, etc. But I admit, my ulterior motive was to meet the people who’s work I’ve always admired and this was certainly true in this case. I’ve been a big fan of Ysolda’s since I started knitting and finally having a chat with her was just great. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Of course, big thanks to Jon for physically being there to make this short happen and to Andrew for the fab theme. Also to Ysolda’s assistant Sarah for setting us up! Enjoy!
