More on Dish Rag Tag!! (WHEW!!)

Today when I came home from work, my Dish Rag Tag box was awaiting me!! YEAH!!!

I opened the box, and this is what I found:

Here's the dish cloth that the person preceding me in the race knitted.

Here's the goodies she packed into this little tiny box!! Two balls of yarn, a bag of M & M's, a magnet that says "We are kindred spirits" and stitch markers!!

So, off I go to knit. My son is trying to talk to me, and I'm telling him, "Shhhhh......I have to concentrate on this and get this finished." I'm knitting, knitting, knitting. And here it is:

My contribution to Dish Rag Tag made from the yarn that I was sent. Then I packed the box up again with yarn that I am sending to the next person. She'll make her dishcloth out of that yarn. Also some goodies for her! And then, on to the next person!

We're almost finished, and I have to say that it's been a lot of fun. I never thought I would like competitive knitting, but it has brought out a side of me that I didn't even know I had!

I'm glad I was sent M & M's--melt in your mouth and not in your hand--very nice to have around while you're knitting--something yummy to pop into your mouth and doesn't mess up the project!


K--that's all for a while!!

You got some great gifts in the DRT box! M&Ms are so good! I love the colors in the cloth you knitted.
I can't wait till my turn..I'm next to last.

Aw, Beth, it was too sweet of you to offer to get some chocolate from Hershey's for me. I appreciate that so much! I won't ask you to do it though as gas is too outrageous even for a 20 minute trip! But thank you so much for offering!!!
