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. . .

While They Play Football a Couple of Miles Away. . .

It's two sticks and a piece of string.  You have to stop and realize that occasionally.  And this is a simple slipped-stitch border. ...
