Live-Blogging The Nominations

9:25 AM --- Man, I wish I could say something about the nominees.  But, mustn't cheerlead.

9:28 AM --- YES!  One of my favorite men to look at, ever.

9:28:02 AM --- Mustn't cheerlead.

9:34 AM --- Laughing out loud at a comment left for me.  You know who you are.

9:48 AM ---  All names, as of now, recorded and prepped for the draw.

10:50 AM --- There are already a few folks nominated by more than one person.

10:52 AM --- My daughter will definitely be voting for him.

11:25 AM --- Chick nominations are always so interesting.  Several people have told me they're more difficult to come up with than Hunks.

11:34 AM --- Great, inspired choice.

11:34:08 --- Mustn't cheerlead.

11:46 AM --- Break for knitting.

12:28 PM --- And a peanut butter sandwich.

1:37 PM --- I know whom a few people are going to nominate, even before they nominate them.

3:48 PM --- Appropos of having just watched this, I remember that I was the only girl in the entire 5th grade who did not have to go watch "that movie."  The boys in my class kept looking at me like I had interrupted all their plans for that half-hour or so.  Still, it's one of my best elementary school memories.

3:53 PM --- Some of these men have been in the contest every year.  I feel like they should be given  some sort of meritorius service certificates or something.

4:11 PM --- Wow.  My friend Kelli has posted this on Facebook:
My friend Kim runs Knitters Hunk and Knitters Chick over at her blog. If any one of my knitting friends joins in, I will donate copies of the winners choice of 5 of my patterns for each contest. Kim Spence Dean just needs to tell me who the winners are. So, go forth my knitting friends and nominate!
Thank you, Kelli!

6:20 PM --- Time to wrap things up here.  As of this minute, 36 men and 33 women have been nominated.  Remember that nominations can come in until Midnight, Sunday.  Spread the word!

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.
