The clock is ticking....

Sock weapon completed - been 7 hours since I emailed the target to find out address - no response, must be on the run now. No dossier, no info on internet. So I sit waiting while the clock is ticking on me :(
In the meantime, I tried on the socks (which are too big for me because my target is a US size 9 and I'm a size 7), but they turned out kinda cool! Think I'll use the leftovers to make ds some toddler socks :)
While I wait..tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock... Posted by Picasa

Sock Wars has begun

Not that trying a new thing in the midst of a competition is a good thing, but I decided to try knitting 2 socks on 2 circulars for the FIRST TIME!! I'm liking this though, at least I'll give it a go for my next pair of socks :) Posted by Picasa

Momma's first pair of socks

Forgot to mention my finished Socks!!! "Nearly" matched perfectly Posted by Picasa

yarnmonkey: Are YOU ready for Sock Wars 2006?

yarnmonkey: Are YOU ready for Sock Wars 2006?

Yes, I've done a mere 2 pairs of socks, and I signed up for this!!! What on earth was I thinking??? Well, perhaps I should take bets on how early a casualty I'll be (or else maybe it's time to take those vacation days I missed due to Keiran's ear infection and my summer cold!!!!)

I'd better get working on my Christmas presents - I likely won't have time at the end of the month!!!!
