If you’re going to be in Berlin from April 6 to 10, stop by the Pictoplasma Festival–an annual celebration contemporary character culture–to see a whole solar system made in yarn!

Our friend Anna Hrachovec, the amazing knitter behind the popular blog Mochimochi Land and the book Knitting Mochimochi, will have a new installation called “Mochimochi Worlds” held at the Smallspace gallery. Learn more about the project on her blog.

The adorable planet bodies include a snowman and a big yarn-ball sun, in addition to the bear planet above, and are all made with Hometown USA and Wool-Ease Thick & Quick.

We wish Anna a great show, and we hope that if you’re in the Berlin area, you’ll check it out!
