Don’t worry, I’m not going to make myself a sweater with Hello Kitty plastered onto the front, but there are some cute little things in the book:

    I think you should totally make a sweater with Hello Kitty on the front! It’d be so cute! Don’t go all out with pink and bright orange or whatever, though.

    Those little ornaments are sooo sweet!

    Nice! Could you please post the ISBN number? It makes it way easier to search on Amazon.co.jp.

    I would wear the Kitty sweater, too! (30 here)
    Haven’t gotten a chance to write back yet, what a crazy week… but just wanted to say thanks so much for taking the time to write about the stretchy material tips. I appreciate it a lot! :)

    OK, I’m not a knitted-toy person, but if I knew how to crochet I’d make 18 of those little Kitties. Why, though, do they ignore the Frog? The Frog is so spectacular. Perhaps the Frog has no relationship to Hello Kitty. Perhaps the Frog is a competitor of Hello Kitty.
    Anyhoo. Thanks for sharing this rare find. Cutest homemade toys ever. It’s like Hello Kitty was made to be crocheted. xoxo Kay

    I love Hello Kitty. It’s a amzing how much more Sanrio stuff costs in Asia than it does here.
    Very cute book. :-)

    the knitted Hello Kitties are irrestible!
    I may have to scour Japantown for japanese knitting books and then pester friends for translation.

    I kind of like the orange sweater – even tho I’d look like a pumpkin in it!
    I’m undecided about the pink. Usually I don’t like dressing little girls in too much pink or white but those colours do seem appropriate with HK.
    Here’s a Hello Kitty along if anyone is interested:

    Another HK fan here! My knitting bag is Hello Kitty! My 5 yo dd told me just last night that she wants me to knit her a pair of Hello Kitty socks (purple with a little Hello Kitty on them). What a really want is the HK rice cooker I saw last year!

  14. Christy says:

    CUTE! I just went to England and picked up a few knitting books there…some interesting ideas too!

  15. Wendy in CA says:

    Oooh, me too, me too!!! I LOVE the knitted Hello Kittys, and I would be most appreciative for the ISBN number, too. And I’m not even a stuffed animal fan! Looking forward to seeing what you’re going to whip up next!!! Are you going to do a vote thing? ‘Cause if so, my vote is for you to whip up a Kitty first. Pretty please:)!

  16. Missy says:

    Oh, this is just too awsome! Lucky you. ^_^

  17. Silvia says:

    Those HK phone geegaws are the best! Must have.

  18. Sharlene says:

    Please pass on the info for that mag! Its scary how much I wanna knit little Hello Kittys now. :) I could use about half a dozen of them for birthday presents!

  19. RB says:

    Where can I buy this book at. My girlfriend would love it.

  20. Jen says:

    *falls over* Oh my goodness that is just TOO much for my eyes to handle! The cuteness is just unbelievable! I can’t wait to see what you make!!!

  21. Stella says:

    Hi Mariko,
    Just in case anyone is wondering where I found this book….
    I bought it at Kinokuniya Stationary in Japantown in San Francisco.
    I’m so glad people like it!
    Stella

  22. Monique says:

    Yes, I would also like if you could tell us the ISPN number of the book or something, I’m not an obsessed fan, but I loove the idea of this book, everything in it looks so damn cute!

  23. Lin says:

    PLEASE, an ISBN number. My daughter was raised on HK and still gets something each year for Christmas from her dad-even though she’s now married. And she’s just learned to knit and would really love this. What a great find!
