Sock Wars!

Friday 22nd of September Sock Wars officially began, but there was a problem emailing out the dossiers with target info and the pattern in. As a result the pattern was posted on the Yarn Monkey blog, where I picked it up on the Saturday morning and started knitting on the train to Oxford and at Chris' house. Sunday I spent cycling. When I got back I had my dossier so knew what size I was knitting and could finish the first one on Monday and get started on the next, since I had the day off work. I finished the second on Tuesday 26th just before work and put them straight in the post to Florida.

Today (well at 4am) I received an email saying they've arrived at their destination and my target is dead and will be posting her unfinished socks to me so I can try kill her target too. Although my assassin is definitely on my heels she too is in the US so death will come slowly.
