Dish Rag Tag

I've been having lots of fun playing Dish Rag Tag. Emily started it and had 200 people sign up. She formed 20 teams of 10 and each thought up clever names like Skanks with Hanks and the PostKnits. My team was the 13th team so we are LUCKY 13. You receive a box with a dishrag, 2 skeins of cotton and some goodies. You get to keep everything in the box and you pick one of the two skeins to knit a dishrag for the next person. You then put the new dishrag in the box with two new skeins of cotton and a few goodies and send it to the next person. The first team to get their box all the way through the team and back to Emily wins. My team is pretty darn competitive and we're doing well but we're not currently in first place. Keep your fingers crossed - I want to win! I received the box from AllyB and she sent me all these wonderful goodies. The colors of the dishrag are even more vibrant than in the photo. THANK YOU AllyB! I love everything. I picked the green and white cotton in the box and made the traveling vines dishrag for Katy who received it on Saturday. I can't wait to see what she makes out of the cotton I put in the box for her. This is definitely some fun and competitive knitting.
