Happy Presidents Day week!
In order to win, since it was Presidents’ Day Weekend after all, I chose the entry question, “If you could make a pair of fingerless mittens to give to any president in U.S. history, who would they be for and why?”
And remember – I said the answers didn’t have to be rational, they simply had to include the name of a U.S. president! (I even snuck in my own reference to the latest pop-culture Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. It had to be done, because I’m goofy like that!)
We got some creative answers (which I hoped people would have fun with)! Here are some of the highlights:
From ripplestitchkin: “I’d make a pair of fingerless mitts for President Jimmy Carter. Those hands built a lot of houses for Habitat for Humanity, and they deserve a pair of cozy mitts!”
From SierraPelona: “I’d make a pair for our 19th President, Rutherford B. Hayes. Because anybody with an awesome name like Rutherford should never be without texting mitts.”
From change it up editing: “George Washington (1789-1797), Thomas Jefferson (1801-09), and John Adams (1797-1801) were all avid collectors and players of marbles. What better accessory for a marble-playing president than a pair of fingerless mittens?”
And the Aberrant Crochet winner…?
………… is Janelle Meyer!
Her entry: “I would make a pair (or two) for Franklin Delano Roosevelt with a matching lap robe for use in his wheelchair.”
I love that! Very cool! Thanks for all the great entries and participation everyone. I even learned a little real trivia!
So Janelle, look for an email from me asking for your postal address so your book can be sent to you!
