DRT = Dish Rag Tag, or more precisely, Son of Dish Rag Tag, coming soon! This is the knitting relay race I joined last year, hostessed by Emily of Yarn Miracle. 22 teams of 10 knitters all around the US. You get a box in the mail with a ball of yarn and a dishcloth pattern, knit it up as fast as you can and pop it in the mail to the next knitter on your team. I had so much fun with this last time around, and can't wait to do it again. Sign ups open here on August first, and run until there are 220 knitters signed up, or August 7th, whichever comes first. More details on Emily's blog, and fund-raiser patterns for sale, too, to cover the cost of prizes. :) Are you going to play?
OMG = One Million Giraffes. I read about this in the Knitted Toys forum on Rav, and immediately my kids and I set to work on our first giraffe. This guy is trying to collect 1,000,000 giraffes by 2011. Whether he makes it to that goal or not, he hopes that a lot of people will take some time out from the electronic world to make a giraffe using their imagination and doing something creative with their own hands.
Here are our ice cream cone giraffes. Today we have plans for Lego giraffes. :)
Edited to add our afternoon giraffes:
