I am hoping for a few things from this contest of skill and wit.
- To meet new friends in the knitting world I inhabit. The Knitting Universe is a great place with some very clever people who reside within.
- The pattern that will be released on May 9th (my last post specified the 8th, but that was just disinformation-this is a war you know) is not a toe up pattern. I've never done one. It's not that I can't, but I've never really loved a toe up pattern enough to try.
- I don't impale myself upon my own knitting needle. Madame Defarge died by her own gun. In a scuffle.
Last night, I surfed over to Jimmy Beans and bought two skeins of Tofutsies sock yarn (Sock Wars III is being sponsored by the company that makes this yarn). I plan to practice on the first one and use the second for battle. So today, I'm off to the library to take out A Tale of Two Cities to study M. Defarge's dastardly ways.
