After Eighteen Days. . .

. . . Your champions have been decided.

The 2016 Knitters' Hunk is
the 2013 Knitters' Hunk
Ewan McGregor.

Nicely done, everyone.  Since Ewan went into the contest automatically (no one had to nominate him), the KH Grand Prize moves to the person who nominated the other finalist.  So, Bridget wins the KH prize package!  Kathryn and Melanie will receive KH Runners-Up prizes.

The 2016 Knitters' Chick is
Helen Mirren.

We love our English women, don't we?

She was nominated by both Lora and Vicki, so they will both be receiving Grand Prize packages!  And Kathy is the Runner-Up, so she should be watching her mail, too.

The final results:
COUNT OVERALL:  Ewan McGregor 12 (52.17%) / Denzel Washington 11 (47.83%)

COUNT OVERALL Tina Fey 7 (30.43%) / Helen Mirren 16 (69.57%)

Shall we do it all again next year?  It will be, believe it or not, our 10th Anniversary!  Look for goings-on all year, leading up to very special contests.  We here at KH/KC HQ have got some interesting things planned. . .

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?


Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


Hooray;  baby giraffe has arrived! Next to his parents, he looks almost like a toy, but when you put him next to anything else, you realize his size.  He's already taller than me: 5'9".
There's a naming contest for him.  I submitted "Reveille," as his arrival trumpeted us all awake yesterday.  That came to me as I was tumbling names around in my head.  His sire's name is Oliver, which, backward --- revilo --- brought Reveille to mind.
Babies are also front and center knitting-wise.  Two people in my orbit are expecting --- one having a boy, the other a girl.  I'm going with basics just now --- burp cloths, wash cloths, etc.  There's a little time yet in both pregnancies, so there's time to decide on the fancier things.  This is my first knitwear model, now waiting to be a big brother.  Time does fly.
