Mochimochi Photo Contest and Giveaway


Anna Hrachovec just announced the fifth annual Mochimochi Photo Contest on Mochimochi Land. Since we at CrafterNews are quite obsessed with Anna’s adorable mochimochis, we are re-posting the contest rules, and also adding a giveaway of our own.

Review Anna’s contest below, and let us know which mochimochi you plan on entering in Anna’s contest and you could win a copy each of Knitting Mochimochi and Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi!

Needles ready? Camera set? It’s now officially time to enter the 5th annual Mochimochi Photo Contest! Woohoo!

Once again, we’re looking for the cutest, funniest, most interesting photos of Mochimochi Land toys. All you have to do to enter is upload your photo(s) to the Mochimochi Friends group on Flickr by Monday, November 21st.

Winners will receive cute goodies from Japan and gift certificates from our generous sponsors Knit Picks and Schmancy!

To be eligible, your photo must contain at least one knitted toy made from a Mochimochi Land pattern. This can be a pattern from the Mochimochi Shop, a pattern from Knitting Mochimochi or Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi, or one of the free patterns on the Mochimochi Blog. The pattern may be modified, but not beyond recognition from the original design.

How to enter:
Simply upload your photo(s) to the Mochimochi Friends Flickr group. If you don’t have a Flickr account, it is free and easy to register (though we recommend signing up as soon as possible, because it takes a little time for your account to be approved for sharing photos in a group). You can upload as many photos as you want, within reason.

(All photos uploaded since the deadline of the 2010 photo contest last year are already entered in this year’s contest!)

The last day to enter the contest is November 21st, 2011. We’ll announce the semi-finalists shortly thereafter here on the blog, then everyone will be able to vote for their favorites! So be sure to check the blog in November.

First place prize will be a bunch of cute goodies from Japan, a $25 gift certificate to the Mochimochi Shop, a $50 gift certificate to Knit Picks (thank you Knit Picks!), and a $25 gift certificate to Schmancy (thank you Schmancy!).

Second place prize will be a handful of cute goodies from Japan, a $15 gift certificate to Mochimochi Land, and a $10 gift certificate to Knit Picks.

Third place prize will be a $10 gift certificate to Mochimochi Land and a $10 gift certificate to Knit Picks.

So get those needles clicking and those cameras snapping!

I have a montage of gnomes, trees, some variations of Anna’s patterns, plus some extras in the works… Lets hope by needles don’t catch fire!

Patti October 25th, 2011

I have a framed seascape with the tiny toys from the new book, and I have a tiny record player that I knit for a friend. There was another project I had in my head, but it’s a little too epic sized to get done in time for this year!

These are simply adorable! I’m going to make the slugs and snails with rainbow colored yarn!

My favorites are the baby gators, but in terms of seasonality, I’ll have to enter the candy corn!
