I have only one knit on the needles right now. I have to focus. I am part of Dishrag Tag. I've never been too good on teams. However, team playing experience, was not a prerequisite to be part of YarnMiracle's Dishrag Tag summer fun. (betcha she's gonna change the rules next time!)
When the Dishrag Team box arrives at my house, I have to stop everything and knit a nice dishrag ....fast. Then I send it to the next team member. The first team to get their box across the country wins.
I have been looking at pretty dishrag patterns without regard to TIME. All those patterns are out the window now. What was I thinking?
I was chatting with a gentleman on vacation, who is a mailman on the night shift. I asked him if he knew about the knitters sending socks around the country by mail and now dishrag tag. He laughed fairly politely but with a hint of these people are nuts, and said he had no idea.
He told me about live chicks being sent in the mail and bees. Now, we once had ducklings for Easter gifts as kids. It was our lesson in why farm animals didn't belong in a house. All I remember is the stench of those ducklings droppings on the newspaper that I had to change twice a day. I don't know how the postmen handle the smell. Or, do chicks in the mail refrain from pooping? Someone has already thought this through I am CERTAIN.
Anyhow, the dishrags are already flying around the country as of August first.
I hope the box doesn't arrive the day before I work a 12 hour shift....I do have priorities. I have to go to work. So Weakest Link lady, go find someone else. I am not going to be the weakest link. GoodBYE!
