Toy designer Anna Hrachovec's "Luvgun" (pictured below) "shoots" three knitted hearts. Since contributing to the book, Anna's moved on to more and more cuteness: a solo show in Berlin (pictured below, below) and two books: Knitting Mochimochi: 20 Super-Cute Strange Designs for Knitted Amigurumi, available right this very second, and Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi: More Than 40 Itty-Bitty Minis to Knit, Wear, and Give, which will be available in August.

Every Teddy bear deserves some love. Even if it's made of lead and therefore, completely toxic. Dave Cole's sweet-but-deadly little stuffed animal (yup, stuffed with lead, too) perhaps takes a back seat in the danger department to its cousin, the 14-foot fiberglass bear Cole had to wear a full-body Hazmat suit to knit, since he used his arms as needles.
