We Have Winners!

The new Knitters' Chick is
TINA FEY.

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
SAM ELLIOTT.

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.

And I'll Say It Again

I've said before that knitters, as a group, are the most generous and thoughtful people I know.  They are always there to help out: if ...
