Probity

Perhaps I say this every year.  If I don't, I should.  If I do, indulge me.

When KH and KC nominations start coming in, there are always nominees that make me do a little fist pump.  Impartiality is out the window for a few seconds, because one (or more) of you has chosen brilliantly.  You nominate people who make looking through photos almost sinfully easy.  You nominate people who are exceptional in so many ways that I wonder at your abilities to choose.  Thank you.

Then, some of you offer to donate items for the prize packages.  After nine (!) years of this, I should not be taken aback by your generosity, but I am.  Thank you.

Over on Facebook, I'll be changing my profile picture daily, featuring as many nominees as I can.  I'm picking these totally at random, so don't read anything into who's there and who's not.

(I'm sorry --- in the first year of this, I got hammered by someone who accused me of cheating, of rigging the results.  She was bitter and unrelenting.  Hence, my Caesar's wife stance every year since.  How things like that can hook into you and never let go. . .)

Anyway, where was I?

Oh, yes.  As of right now, there are 32 entrants for Knitters' Chick, and 35 for Knitters' Hunk.  Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 PM (ET) tomorrow night.  Spread the word!!  Tell folks to nominate; the more, the merrier.  Truly!
