The Race is On ... Go Lucky 13!

I received the Lucky 13 box for the Dish Rag Tag yesterday afternoon from the lovely Grace (notice her husband's wonderful artwork added to our team's box!).... and inside I found these goodies...

Grace sent 2 yellow skeins of Peaches & Cream (which btw, am I the only one who hadn't yet knit with this? I can only find Sugar & Cream around here...) for the tag skeins, 2 beautiful green skeins of Filatura Luxor DK cotton/acrylic blend for my gift, a knit & crochet Dishcloth pattern book (I might have to ask Mom to do some of the crochet ones for me!) and a lovely petal dishcloth!

Of course, this is a relay and the race is on, so I immediately got home and got to work on a dishcloth for the next tag in line... Ally! Thankfully I have a wonderful man who not only did the grocery shopping, but then fed the dogs and cooked dinner last night so that I could knit, knit, knit! Thank you honey! I was actually going to do the petal dishcloth for Ally as well, however the lovely yellow colors that Grace sent inspired me to do my second sunflower dishcloth and this is what Ally will be receiving...

I finished it up, weaved in my ends and got Ally's box of goodies all packaged up and ready to go just as the season finale of Hell's Kitchen was ending...

The box is now back in the hands of the USPS, as I dropped it off on my way to work this morning.... let's go Lucky 13!!!!!!!!!!!

I also just found out that Karen, who I got to spoil in the Dog Days of Summer dishcloth swap, received her package that I sent ... and I did good, she loves it... yea!!!

Hey, I got my box yesterday too! I'll be posting sometime tonight, as I had to borrow my mom's camera and I need to go to her house to upload the pics. I had to teach a riding lesson and ride my horse, so I ended up doing mine later last night. How did the finale go? I missed it!

Nicole, I'm waiting for my box. I'm excited to get ours. Glad your hubby did the shopping, cooking and dog feeding. Mine did the vacuuming (he's not allowed to feed the dogs - he over feeds). g

Oh, I'd recognize that artwork by Grace's DH anywhere! ;-}
You guys have fun.

You all sound like you're having so much fun with the Dish Rag Tag! I didn't know about that one until it was too late to sign up, but hopefully there will be a next time!!

I love the sunflower dishcloth -- is it out of a book (what's the name?) or a freebie pattern?

Good luck to your team!

Lucky 13 has a tattoo?! That is soooo Hard Core.
