There's been a wee glitch with the Knitty Calendar contest and I now have to choose an alternate for one of the months. Could you please send me the attached image at full resolution, uncropped? I need to see the quality of the image up close before I can make a final decision.

Thanks in advance for your help!


That's great, sure, I will send them when I get home (I'm at work and these are on my home machine).

I thought the calendar was already printed and done and for sale?




Um, yeah. But it's print-on-demand, which means that only those ordered are printed. It's quite an awkward situation, but one of the photos didn't print well, and that's why I have to do this. Until it's fixed, the calendar is out of the shop. But I love this photo of yours and it would do very well in June as long as the resolution is high enough. So you'd be slid in as a runner-up winner, if all goes well.

I'll be looking forward to seeing this picture tonight!

DUH! You win everything! Better late than never.
PS: At Lesley's baby shower I WON the guess-the-number-of-things-in-the-jar contest! And what's amazing is that that's the only contest I consistently win! (I won the how-many-M&Ms-are-in-here contest in Mrs. Edmondson's class at Warner.) Mom asked me what formula I had used to derive my estimate. But see, I used no formula. It's just my special talent.
PPS: Happy H'ween!

I do NOT win everything. Remember you won bowling that one time?

Complete list of things I've won:

1. That Kitchenaid mixer at that Architectural Digest home show drawing! That was very exciting.

2. Equal Opportunity in Housing Poetry context in ninth grade; award present unto me by Rafer Johnson. When asked to read my poem aloud at the ceremony, I politely declined.

3. Momma's Royal Cafe Annual Napkin Art Contest for "Lunch will Make You Come Alive," 1998.

4. Las Candalistas "Walk on the Wild Side" Poetry contest in second grade, for "An Apple":

An apple: big, red, juicy...
and, I think, it's a little bit fruity!
Eat a lot, eat a little bit more,
but if you eat too much,
you'll eat the core!

Woo-hoo!!! I knew you belonged in that calendar.

You won a KITCHENAID MIXER? The only gear I covet? You won one? What color? Is it beautiful?

Don't freak, but...


They let me pick which color I wanted and then they shipped it to me.

It really made my month.

What color did you pick? Were there two colors that you went back and forth on? Tell me exactly what such an incredible experience felt like. How many speeds does it have? Did it have mixing attachments?

They were giving me the $249 model, not the fancier one with a better motor and stainless finish option. Which was fine with me!

It came with the whisky-looking thing, the hook, and the other one (the one that looks like a weird lolipop with some lines in between, or like a leaf) as well as the plastic guard that keeps flour from flying around as you add it.

I probably debated between the pumpkinish one, the pistachio one, and the yellow one. I picked the Lemon Yellow one and never looked back...

I am so jealous and happy for you. Lemon yellow sounds beautiful...

And also glad your picture made it into the Knitty calendar.

See, that's classic. Who took you to the Architectural Digest show at the Javits Center? ME!! I took you! But you dropped your business card and won. I won a parmasean ice cream cone off a catering tray.

By the way, the boy who made me the CD on the first date is like you. (Maybe that's one reason I like him.) There was a pumpkin carving contest at his firm, and I knew even before the day begun that he would win. And sure enough he won. A $20 Albertson's gift card no less! He's also a bit like dad. There was one car I liked (I'm going car shopping with dad on his birthday on Sunday), but the boy who made me the CD said I should rule it out because there was no B pillar, so it doesn't do so well in side-impact safety tests. Dad agreed.

I feel like I should take back all my naysaying about them.
