I'm already hearing from some of you regarding your Hunk and Chick nominees.  As usual, there are some remarkable choices.  I don't know how many times in these nine (!) years I've seen someone's nominee and said to myself, "Why didn't I think of that?  It's so obvious!"

One of the square hats I made is going to Harry's Hundred.  I like the two-sided-ness of this one.  There was enough of the grey yarn to make a scarf, so I've moved on to that.  These are acrylic yarns, and have good heft to them;  they should keep someone quite warm.

  1. I love square hats (and love that one will be for HH!). And the colors on the sock are lovely - very calming, I think.

  2. I love that square hat! And I love Harry's hundred

  3. Well done- as usual! I always say that about the nominees when I see them too! So I'm always happy with any winner because I love them all! Bring on the games! Olympics have nothing on the KH and the KC!!!
