Monday, May 12
Well almost. I finished my Sock Wars socks last night and sent the package out this morning after I got done with work! I didn't reach my goal of getting them in the mail on Saturday but there were technical difficulties with the whole dossier/ getting the pattern and target. So instead of starting at 6am on Friday I started at 11am... I think I could have made it, but I'm happy with sending them out today! I can't wait to get my next socks, I'd like to have two targets under my belt.
Here is a close up of the detonator stitch pattern:
It's called the detonator, here is the ravelry link.
It wasn't that bad or hard but some people had trouble with it... A few times I forgot which row I was on, but nothing too major!
Start Date:May 9th
End Date: May 11th
Yarn: Knit Picks, sock garden, morning glory
Needles: US#1s (2 socks, on 2 circulars)
Recipient: Wendy (gwendy ravelry link)
Normally I would apologize for my obsessive need to finish these in record time, (killing Wendy) but this is WAR!!! Now I can't wait to receive her socks and get another kill under my knitting belt! They weren't kidding when they called it the bloodiest knitting tournament ever! I'm just hoping whoever has me is too busy to crank out my socks... but if they happen to be checking me out, my favorite color is pink...but I know this is war and not a swap, so I'll take what I can get!
Oh a bonus... these will be my May socks for SAM5!!! The first time i've finished a pair befor the last day of the month, er last hours of the month!
