Crocheted Food

It’s common knowledge that in Japan they make plastic food models, but who knew that in the privacy of their own homes, Japanese women were churning out little crocheted taiyaki, donuts, and ice cream sundaes?

Crocheted donuts: far more ironic than a plate of plastic fruit!
A sundae that appeals even when your feebly insulated Japanese apartment makes breaking the ice in the sink every morning a winter necessity

These are from a little book called “Sweets Amigurumi” published by  Boutique-sha.

The Last Tea Bowl Thief was chosen as an Editor’s Pick for Best Mystery, Thriller & Suspense on Amazon!

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
