Congrats to Anna Hrachovec on her first solo show, we love her knitted creations so! Stop by gallery hanahou in NYC to check it out.

In her first solo show, craft artist Anna Hrachovec stretches the possibilities of knitting as a medium to create an expansive and wacky landscape installation. Crash-landed aliens, rat-infested skyscrapers, giant ants, and everything else that comprises the 8-foot installation is entirely hand-knitted by the artist, who used 200 balls of yarn and more than a million stitches to make it all come to life. And just for fun, the piece includes a working model train – converted into a silly knitted monster, of course!

Some of the elements in the piece are based on designs in Anna’s 2010 book of knitted toy patterns, Knitting Mochimochi.

Anna will also be at World Maker Faire, giving a demo in the CRAFT tent.

Greetings from Mochimochi
