Thank you to everyone who entered the 2013 Mochimochi Photo Contest! It’s hard to believe that is the seventh year we’ve been holding this contest, but there seems to be no end to the creativity of mochi-makers: once again this year we received HUNDREDS of funny, creative, beautiful entries!
Yesterday John and I spent several hours carefully looking through all the entries in the Mochimochi Friends Flickr group, and after much debate we managed to sort out 10 honorable mentions and 20 semifinalists.
So without further ado, we present the honorable mentions, photos that tickled us and deserve special recognition. See them all—in no particular order—after the jump!

Aren’t they all delightful in so many different ways?! Congratulations to these clever knitters who have captured the Mochimochi spirit!
Tomorrow we’ll present our first batch of 10 semifinalists, and we’ll ask for YOUR input so that we can be on our way to choosing the finalists. So check back here tomorrow!
