Bringing up the rear





And then there was one.
Team Wannabe Racin finished with moi. I received the box on a Friday and completed my dishrag (pictured above, enjoying the worlds best garlic bread puffs & Italian beer) Saturday. I packaged her up and sent her off to Emily for the final leg of the race.
The first cloth pictured was sent to me by Eliza. **Note to Self** Must get hands on Sugar N Cream striping cotton! The pattern she chose was so beautiful, I knit the same for Emily with the blue yarn Eliza sent. I also received some yummy soap and a huge chocolate bar too!
Here's my progress on Fifi. I need approximately 4 or 5 more pattern repeats for the body and then I can start the sleeves.
As luck would have it...I managed to choose a discontinued color.
Fingers crossed I have enough to finish.

F-is for fabulous! Fabulous Fifi. I bet you will have enough yarn. I have a good feeling. (I bet that makes you feel sooooo much better)
Love the packing tape. I need to get me some fancy packing tape like that!!

I simply must make that dishcloth. I've done a circular one before, but this one is the bomb.

I love those dishrags (both the one you made and the one Eliza made for you) - such a great pattern! (The garlic bread puffs don't look bad either!) Cool kitty head tape on the box...

Your Fifi is looking lovely -- I sure hope you don't run out of yarn! What do you plan to do for the sleeves? I only worked one additional round on each sleeve before the final K1,P1 rib round and rib bind off. If you do something similar, the sleeves (at least) won't need much yarn.

Even though it's taken awhile for your Dish Rag Tag box to finish, I think the last ones may even better than the first! The stress is off and you have the loveliest dish cloth!
