That’s right! Three boxes arrived yesterday!
U Can’t Knit Just 1
Gum and postcards from everyone (except Jessica, who sent a map heeheehee and knit the last leg for her team)…
…and kitty stickers…
…and stitch markers! I heart them.
Jessica knit a beautiful dish cloth for Jen. Thank you all so much, this was a lot of fun to open!
Box 13 arrived from
The Dastardly Dishtaggers!
Look at the pretty purple yarn from Keri! I bet she spun it herself – look at her blog, you’ll see why. Butterfly stitch markers with a hexagon quilt block. Are they still called “blocks” if they aren’t square? I love it, it’s sweet adn unique and it matches the yarn. No picture, I quit while I was ahead when the post cards started disappearing. Captain Tracey is going to love her dish cloth! Thanks to everyone.
There were tiny Toblerones in one of the above boxes, I can’t remember which one because Ellie ran off with them and they didn’t make it into a picture. I got them back and hid them – they were sent to ME. I gotta say, I had entirely too much help with this post.
And now for the casualty. If you have young children you might want to ask them to leave the room before this next bit and if you suffer from a weak heart, please close your browser’s window now.
Box 14 was damaged in transit.
One end came open, and spilled contents in the back of a mail truck somewhere. Miraculously, the dish rag (and the instructions) finished the race!
Rag Tag Knitters!
Maggie, the turquoise dish cloth for your captain, Georgi is unscathed and lovely. And the notes on the back of the instruction sheet are priceless. I know it is small consolation, but your box perished a hero.
Congratulations to each and every team member on completing the race.
