I’m pleased to present (in no particular order) the first 10 of 20 semifinalists for the Mochimochi Photo Contest! John and I based our selections of the semifinalists on originality of scene, ingenuity of knitting, and quality of photo. These photos are all amazing, and very hard to choose among!
We need to narrow the 20 semifinalists down to 10, and you can help by campaigning for your favorites in the comments to this post. Tomorrow I’ll post the next 10 semifinalists, and then I’ll post the selected 10 finalists at the end of the week and voting will officially begin!
UPDATE 12/12/07: I’ve taken the images in this post down to save bandwidth, but you can still click on the links to see the photos!
