Almost There

The brackets for both Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick are filled out.  In the spirit of complete transparency, I want you to know that I had to move a couple of names around on the Knitters' Chick side.  It was to keep people from having to choose between two of their own nominees, and it stayed completely random.

Now, of course, it's time for me to start the Webhunt for pictures of the pairs.  I don't know if I'll be done tonight, but check back before you go to bed.  Whenever the pairings do go up, you'll always have 24 hours for voting.

Let's hope Polldaddy will cooperate. . .

The Men's Seeds are:
1) Mike Rowe
2) Ewan McGregor
3) Viggo Mortensen
4) Liam Neeson
5) Sam Neill
6 - 11)(Alphabetically) David Beckham
Daniel Craig
Stephen Colbert
Idris Elba
Timothy Olyphant
Aidan Turner

The Women's Seeds are:
1) Maggie Smith
2) Isabella Rossellini
3) Rashida Jones
4) Julianne Moore
5) Helen Mirren
6) Meryl Streep
7) Tina Fey
8) Angelina Jolie

Hold on to your hats!


  1. There is only one voting session per day right? So if i check in the a.m. there is not another vote that day. ??? I felt like I missed a few last year. But I was working then!

    1. One "page" of choices will be posted each day. There will be 24 hours to vote on that post. Then another one goes up. And so on. If you're seeing the same choices you did before, that session hasn't closed yet.

  2. I know I should know this, but I'm confused. Are the seeds the first round people?

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?


Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


Hooray;  baby giraffe has arrived! Next to his parents, he looks almost like a toy, but when you put him next to anything else, you realize his size.  He's already taller than me: 5'9".
There's a naming contest for him.  I submitted "Reveille," as his arrival trumpeted us all awake yesterday.  That came to me as I was tumbling names around in my head.  His sire's name is Oliver, which, backward --- revilo --- brought Reveille to mind.
Babies are also front and center knitting-wise.  Two people in my orbit are expecting --- one having a boy, the other a girl.  I'm going with basics just now --- burp cloths, wash cloths, etc.  There's a little time yet in both pregnancies, so there's time to decide on the fancier things.  This is my first knitwear model, now waiting to be a big brother.  Time does fly.
