We usually have a very large mailbox. Sadly, about a month ago, the arm of the mailbox post rusted through, causing the mailbox to plummet to the ground. The welder hasn’t been able to come and fix it yet, so we are making do with a teeny tiny plastic mailbox that is zip-tied to the post. I was very worried that there would be a problem with the Dish Rag Tag boxes when they returned home, but, as you can see:
They fit perfectly.
Three cheers for Deuces Wild, this year’s Dish Rag Tag’s first place finisher! Sarah-Hope was the last knitter to have the box. With the help of Melissa and the USPS, she managed to get it from California to Alabama in just three days. I tip my hat to our postal workers for this amazing finish. And to you, Sarah-Hope (and Damian) for such a great box.
This year’s return yarn is next year’s start yarn.
The dishrag is wonderful (I love it in the variegated)! I know your Team Captain, Susan, will really enjoy it. Thank you so much for the treats – buttons are such a great idea for a small and sweet swap present! Here’s a close up of the ceramic ones:
I think there is a cardigan in my future.
The other very cool thing that the Deuces Wild team did for me was to include a postcard (or tourist map – I heart it) from all the different locales. This box has really been around.
Biggest congratulations, Deuces Wild! Your team work and dedication really shows.
Who’s box will be next? Will all the teams attain Dish Rag Tag Glory? Will Dish Rag Tag repeat the unprecidented 100% participation of last year? Stay Tuned to find out!
