So. . .

. . . I am a great believer in symbolism.  Things that stand for, mean, remind one of, other things.  I surround myself with talismans --- in the house, in my car, even in my billfold.  If I don't have something nearby that puts me in mind of something near, dear, irreplaceable, I feel sort of lost.

When it came time to choose the nominations start date for Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick this year, a glance at the calendar made the decision simple.

Today is Robert Redford's birthday.

Nominations are open!

Comments

  1. I'll start with 2 hunks and 2 babes.
    Hunks: Neil Gaiman and my love, my dear Jeremy Irons.

    Babes: Amanda Palmer and Mia Farrow (who is a knitter, and whose participation in making the world better is awesome).

  2. Hunks:
    1. Tom Hiddleston (yes, in spite of his 'relationship' with Taylor Swift and because of his relationship with HL)
    2. Alan Cummings. WHY HAVE I NOT NOMINATED HIM BEFORE?
    3. Alexander Skarsgard. Because I will nominate him until he wins. Or til the end of time, whichever comes first.

    I need to think about the ladies so I will return!

    1. Have you read Alan Cummings' book? I donated my copy, or I'd send it to you.

  11. Clearly I cannot follow instructions. I can't put Tina Fey, since she's already in...so I'll add Sarah Silverman instead.
