Need v. Want

I’m working on the Rabbit and Mystery Patterns. And a couple little things for my sadly neglected toy shop.

But what I WANT to be doing working on the Cat. Because, seriously, this is some of the nicest yarn I have ever touched.


So very soft.

SpinSpanSpun, spun and dyed it just for me. Luscious.

One other thing I’ve been thinking about lately. Dish Rag Tag. The response to my little survey was Enthusiastic, but not Overwhelming. So I think we’ll have a race with 10 teams of 10 (100 total knitters).

To those of you who have never heard of Dish Rag Tag: Welcome new readers! For the past four years I have run a dish cloth knitting relay race with the help of Priority Mail to pass the baton (box) from knitter to knitter across the United States! You can catch up the rules in this post from last year’s race.

I should start working on the Official Pattern of Dish Rag Tag.

But what I WANT to be doing is working on the Cat.

    Hooray! More Dish Rag Tag. I can’t wait to see what you come up with for this year. In the mean time, work on the cat. 🙂

    Ack! Add another “YES!” to that vote! I’ve been out of the loop lately with some office stuff and I’m just now getting caught up. When will signups be? YAY!!!

    SpinSpanSPun looks like the softest yarn ever too!
    I love following dishrag tag along…..
    but Fireman forbade me from participating since I nearly lost ten years off my life, getting it done with no electricity during a power outage etc!!! Makes me laugh to think about it again.

    Hi Emily,
    I guess I’m officially hooked. First the Mystry Toy KAL on Ravelry and now Dish Rag Tag. I’ll keep an eye on your Blog for the sign-up date.
    By the way, the cat turned out great and I loved the fact that you daughter thought the head alone was just perfect.
