Did I make an extra-large mistake yesterday.
Each year, the top four seeds going into Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick are the previous year's winners, the previous year's runners-up, and the winners from the two years before that. Prior to this morning, I hadn't been able to find --- either online or in my files --- last year's last match-ups, so I went with my memory.
These are the people who go into the draw automatically, and, therefore, do not have to be nominated:
My sincere apology.
