I thought about taking some pictures for this post, but life has really been getting in the way this week. Just use your imaginations.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time to announce the winners of the Individual Merit Awards for 2009. These two individuals (selected by random number generator from a pool of eligible participants) embody the unique spirit of cooperative competition that Dish Rag Tag is meant to foster.
First up, our Most Valuable Player: Toni! Dorothy nominated Toni saying:
I’d like to nominate Chronicle of Yarnia’s team captain Toni for MVP. She has really gone out of her way to make this fun for our team. Not only does she write motivating posts, she even ran a little contest just for our team.
Congratulations, Toni! Your hand painted chess set, yarn for a matching board and a pair of Chiao Goo needles to knit the board are on their way to you!
There were 38 knitters eligible for Fastest Turn Around this year! Out of this group, the random number generator selected Stephanie of Purls and Paws! According to the tracking information provided by the United States Postal Service, the Purls and Paws box was Delivered 11:14 am on September 24 and Accepted at the Post Office on September 24, 2009, 9:26 pm. Fabulous turn around, Stephanie! Your sock yarn (thanks again to Lisa), a pair of Chiao Goo needles (save them for next year’s race) and a gift card to purchase matching ice cream for your socks are on the way.
The last of the Son of Dish Rag Tag Return the Dish Rags to the Team Captain’s boxes are in the mail (yesterday morning). And I have some final questions if you wouldn’t mind taking a short survey:
Thank you to everyone who participated this year! I’ve got a nice basket of cotton just waiting for Dish Rag Tag 2010:
