Getting Ready to Race

It's time for Dishrag Tag: The Sequel! I know there are some of us who participated last year and were eagerly waiting for another go. Today's the day to sign up for the 2008 version. Sign ups will end in a week or at 300 people, so don't waste time. Sign up here ; maybe I'll see you on my team.

Last year I had the privilege of captaining the intrepid Cotton Commandoes as we strove for Dishrag glory. We strategized, we practiced, we knit fast, we mailed, but alas, we didn't win. As far as I can remember, we were 7th or 8th out of 25 teams, which isn't bad. The vagaries of the USPS slowed us down a bit, but what can you do?

The game was fun, I learned to knit dishcloths, and I met some great people. I still keep in contact through blog reading with two of my team members, Cathy-Cate (my apparently long-lost twin, who I'll soon be test-knitting for) and Sarah-Hope, an endlessly entertaining writer and animal lover.

So sign up and join in the fun!
