Debrief

When I got the notion to try a "Classic" version of Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick, I didn't have a clear idea of who might win the women's edition.  I was fairly sure, though, that Cary Grant would win among the men.  Just a hunch.  I would have been able to use this photograph, which, if you ask me, is heart-stopping.

If not Cary Grant, then probably Paul Newman, I thought.  It's still overwhelming that pictures of the two of them together exist.

Rickman never occurred to me.  I still don't think of him as "gone," maybe.  When he was nominated, though, I suspected he'd win.  There's a bit of loop-closing there --- first KH, first two-time KH winner, first KH Classic.

Katharine Hepburn's victory makes me very happy.  As I say, I nominated her myself.  Hannah's middle name is "Katharine," for her, and we are very hard on that "a"-not-"e" thing.  I know that we probably shouldn't worship other human beings, but to me, Hepburn is a marvel.  A wondrous, pugnacious, enduring marvel.

  1. Thanks for the Cary Grant pictures. I once spoke to him on the phone! Not for long; just to tell him the car we were repairing for him was ready. Needless to say I didn't expect him to answer his own phone, and when I heard that "ello" I nearly forgot what I was supposed to say!

    Oh, and I agree with you about Hepburn, totally. Thanks for doing this.
