I vote for the Lou Hoover from Knitty. I may be prejudiced as an Iowan by birth, but I think that is gorgeous and I'm going to make one. It's near the top of my list. Lou was quite a gal. She and Herbert were in China during the Boxer Rebellion, she wore a gun and holster while she did housework. They did a huge amount of humanitarian work, it's sad that nobody remembers them for anything but "Hoovervilles".
