And the Winner is . . . .

First of all, let me say that all the entries were terrific: entertaining, well-written, imaginative. I'm really impressed, and I hope everyone else enjoyed reading all the responses as much as I did! If I could knit socks for all of you, I would (and I'll knit socks for any of you who ask anyway; you'll just have to wait longer, possibly into the next millenium).

Needless to say, the excellence of the field made picking a winner very difficult. But I had to pick one, so I did. Our winner, by a hair, is Tiel Ansari's Bring Me the Head of Prince Charming.

Congratulations, Tiel! I'll be e-mailing you a sock questionnaire.

As for Gwenn, Pete, Lucy, and mybabyjohn: if you'd like some socks and are willing to wait a long time, e-mail me and I'll send you a questionnaire, too. And Katharine, I'll see what I can do in the double-knitting department!

This was great fun, and I hope to do it again soon. Who knows what Gary will find up in the hills?


  1. congratulations to Tiel Ansari and many thanks for the opportunity to wipe the rust off the writing skills.

    I didn't submit, but found the reading great fun. I think you and Gary ought to make this a regular fact of life (once a year? once a quarter?) because I've seen some of the stuff on Peavine. I grant you, it has been years since I hiked up there, but people do not cherish the desert as they should. Maybe these stories could help raise awareness for cleanliness.
