Individual Merit Awards – Rock the Vote

All right. It’s time – I mean, seriously, you’ve been waiting long enough at this point don’t you think? This is going to be slightly more complicated than I wanted it to be, but just bear with me.

The actual voting for the Dish Rag Tag Individual Merit Awards will take place over at surveymonkey (I need you all to remember that my user name is YarnMiracle and not my real name for the next time I forget). But before I give you the link: scroll down and peek at the pictures for the Best KIP Picture and the Most Complex Pattern. After that comes the links to the Best Hard Luck Stories (blog entries). When you’ve perused to your heart’s content (and made any necessary notes), the link to vote is at the bottom of the entry. Voting will be open through Sunday and then I will announce all the winners of all the Individual Merit Awards in one fell swoop with prizes to be mailed next week.

And now…

Without further ado….

The Five Finalists for Best Dish Rag Tag Hard Luck Story

  • Mark’s self-proclaimed Comedy of Errors
  • Sue who was caught with her dish rag in that enormous storm that knocked out the power for so many of you.
  • Stephanie who’s late night math troubles resulted in an 11 inch dish rag!
  • Cathy’s stormy knitting experience. Rain, thunder and lightening cannot stop Dish Rag Tag!
  • Debbie is blogless, but that doesn’t keep her story from being about as tragic as they come:

    Hi Emily,
    I didn’t include my story but here it is. I received the box on a Monday. The following Tuesday morning, in a freak accident, I got a concussion. I was leaning on my knees over the end of the sofa to pick up, what else, yarn. When I straightened back up and turn back around, I lost my balance, fell and hit the side of my face on the corner of the end table which I had moved out to put, what else, yarn on. The corner of the table went into the side of my face and I slammed (and I mean slammed) into the table. Got a great cut and had to go to the emergency room. I was told to not do anything for a week. So….my beautiful little idea for a flower wash rag had to be on hold until I was given the go ahead to get up and do stuff. Then, of course, I had to play catch up to get done everything that hadn’t been done for a week. When I finally was able to finish the wash rag, I was so anxious about getting it in the mail that I closed up the box without including a couple more treats that I had for you. But…must get in the mail so I went to the all night post office at the airport and got it off. Yippee!

    That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.


  • Now, go VOTE!

    I must say that I’m really surprised at how beautiful dish rags can be. I hope people find something less harsh than washing dishes to do with them!
