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.
