Weapons armed...acquiring target....

Sock Wars got off to a halting start because the remnants of Hurricane Gordon smacked Northern Ireland where Yarn Monkey, the organizer, lives. Because she had trouble sending dossiers out through email, she posted the pattern for the Sock of Doom on her blog. It was Friday afternoon, and I was still at work, but I took a break and cast-on.



About 49 hours later, I was finished.


I still don't have a dossier, but I've corresponded with my target (I needed to find out if "Yarn Fairy" wore a men's size 7 or a women's). I've told her (Yarn Fairy is a "she") that she's safe as long as I don't know where to send the socks. But how safe am I?

I still have to finish my second sock . . . and then mail it all the way to Northern Ireland! Yipes! I've tried corresponding with my own assassin, but she's not responding. Sigh.

My target actually e-mailed to ask if I had her address. As I'm one of the ones who actually DID receive a dossier, I let her know she's going down. The chaos of work may delay it a little (actually through the gusset decreases on sock #2), but her days are numbered.

This is why I didn't sign up for Sock Wars. I could never bring myself to take out someone called "Yarn Fairy." What can I say? I'm soft.

I'm taking out someone with my name. It's all very confusing - I'm killing a Catherine and I'm being targetted by a Cate. Sigh.

I finished my socks - sending them to Ireland by Air (as quickly as I can afford) tomorrow morning.

I have not heard from my assasin. I never got the initial e-mail of my target, I had to go to the website for sockwars to figure it out. I would tell you more, but then I would have to kill you. Nice blog.

Hello
I am the Yarn Fairy :) I am not dead yet and I have the second pair of socks ready to go. I have sent to my target in CA. So maybe my socks will get to her before the postman brings mine from Don. It's getting colder up North and I always have cold feet. This really has been fun thank you. I have been trying to teach my 4 year old CPR the last couple days just in case he doesn't seem to understand Oh well.
