Wannabe Racin' & Choice Baldness

I haven't been knitting much over here. Welcome to summer at Chez Wannabe. I'm lucky if I can get in a few sock rows lately and it's makin' me SAD. I miss just sitting and knitting. Soon I hope.

Emily over at Yarn Miracle started Dish Rag Tag back a few months ago. Heard of it? I instantly joined and was chosen by Em as a Team Captain. The race goes like this...a box arrives to your house. Inside there are 2 balls of dishcloth cotton (one that you keep and one that you use to knit up a dishcloth for the next person in your team), a knitted dish cloth (or rag, whatevs) and a surprise from the person that tagged you. Since I'm a Team Caption, I got the box for my team first. I call my team Wannabe Racin'. You can follow our progress on my sidebar! Ye-ah.

I got the box on Friday and was able to whip up my dishcloth and get the box shipped out to the next person in my team this morning. Turbo knitting. Lurve it.

This gorgeous mitered dishcloth was in my box along with a few really cute cookie cutters and a recipe for Shortbread. All this came from Emily. Here is a pic of the yummy dishcloth I got:

I whipped this beauty up for Gina, the next person on my team. The pattern is called Vine Lace Cloth and it's by S. M. Kahn over at smariek.

So I put this in the box along with 2 new skeins of dishcloth cotton, a surprise for my tagged person and instructions for the race. And had to add a little hello to the outside of the box like I encouraged my teammates to do:

I hope we win! We have a pretty good strategy so I think we will do great!

In other news, the 'Nut decided to have a date with a pair of scissors and diaper cream yesterday morning while I was still blissfully asleep. And then decided to clean up her mess with baby wipes. Ehem.
Here is the aftermath:

Yes, those are indeed bald spots. The joys of having a 3 year old. She informed me later in the day that she did it just like the lady did it...meaning the lady that cut her hair last time. Oy.

I was able to cover up most of the damage with a headband that Tink made her. Wanna make me a few more of these, Cheri?

i used to do the same thing to all my barbies. it got to the point where i was banned from the scissors near my barbies.

and you know the infamous story about sara and the benneton sweatshirt, right? just wanting to see if the scissors will go through?

oh, send me the length of that headband, and if you want it longer or shorter....

OMG, that headband looks so cute on her. Hopefully her hair grows quickly. She looks adorable no matter what she does, just keep the scissors away from her. Next time may not come out as pretty. I have boys, I know all too well.

super cute dishclothes, especially the vine one that you made. That pattern looks a lot like the Fawkes socks I'm knitting.

heehee I know it's not really funny, but it is funny ;) Why do kids always want to cut their hair?
