We Have Winners!

The new Knitters' Chick is

In results that were, frankly, unexpected, she defeated Meryl Streep by a most impressive margin (63% to 37%}.  She actually sort of breezed through the whole race, now that I look back on it.

Tina was nominated by two readers --- Kim S. (who actually nominated Fey and  Streep) and Carol.   They will each, therefore, receive a grand prize.  Kim's address I have, but, Carol, if you could get in touch with me (handeyecraftsAthotmailDOTcom) and give me yours, I'll have the packages out as soon as I can.

The new Knitters' Hunk is

The votes were 71% to 29% (more than 2-to-1)  Poor Viggo --- runner-up two years in a row.  Somehow, though, I imagine his life will go on.

The grand prize goes to Sam's nominator, Lorette.  Congratulations to you, too!  And thank you for nominating someone I've, personally, had a colossal crush on for close to 40 years.

One more winner to announce: kmkat wins the yarn bowl!  Watch your mailbox or your porch --- I can't decide if I'm sending things USPS or UPS.

That's a wrap for this year, gang.  Thank you ALL.


  1. Whee, thank you! Great knitters' winners.

  2. Hooray! Though honestly, there were a lot of good hunks and chicks this year. I look forward to seeing Sam's face as the Hunk all year!

  3. FABULOUS! I'm sad that it's over. Congrats to winners! It's been fun...

  4. I love when it ends and new winners are crowned, but I hate when it ends because then it ends! Torment- total agony- from start to finish, but the best kind!!! Thanks for the great big good time, Kim!


Before It Gets Dark

I'm assuming lots, if not all, of you are going to be eclipse-viewing later today.  Because of that, today's prizes and questions a...
