Now to Work

If I'm going to run a Knitters' contest, I suppose I should do some knitting.

Making this
out of some dreamy lemon cloud yellow cotton/soy yarn.

And this
out of this:
a viscose, mohair, nylon blend.  If I like the fit, I'm going to make several, some using sock yarn as in the photo.

Speaking of pretty things on the needles, my Twinnie is making a cowl of her own design which shows how positively glorious variegated yarn can be.  I've always been drawn to variegateds, for some reason.

The final totals are 50 men in the Knitters' Hunk field, and 33 in Knitters' Chick.  I'll have the seeds for you tomorrow, will be drawing up the brackets soon, and voting will begin on Thursday.  Just let me say, I'm very impressed with the range of nominees this year.  And, like most of you (I suspect), I keep thinking of people I should have nominated. . .
