Thank you to all of you who entered—this is our favorite Mochimochi Land tradition, and we’re so happy that it’s been going for nine whole years. I say it every year, but it continues to be true: the creativity and enthusiasm that you knitters put into Mochimochi Land are what keep me inspired to come up with new ideas, characters, and projects.

Feeling inspired? It’s not too early to enter next year’s contest! All photos added to the Mochimochi Friends Flickr group will automatically be entered in the 10th Annual Mochimochi Photo Contest for later this year, and anytime you want to send in a video entry (by emailing a link to info [at] mochimochiland [dot] com) we’ll consider it for the next contest. We hope the next contest will be our biggest yet!
