Sock Wars?. Warming up for Wool Warfare!

14. January 2010 08:09 by Jobo | 29 Comments

BombThe week is quickly taking shape - it's almost time to cast on and get moving on the hosiery hand-grenades!  My target has been contacted, though hasn't responded as of yet, and the yarn has been chosen.  I've been keeping my hands busy and in shape by knitting socks constantly since before Christmas.  I've tried out patterns with new techniques to challenge myself just in case the soon-to-be-released sock wars pattern contains some new or unfamiliar things.

Tonight I have to wind the skein into a ball (preferably centre-pull so I can knit both socks at once), get home to my parents for a quick visit (Mom picked me up another 2 sets of 2.25 mm DPNs when she was in town last week) and test out my gauge* by knitting a quick swatch (ewwww gauge=poo)

sock wars ready2 ?Knit? or be KILLLED?

My plan for this weekend - get mellowed out on Friday evening? clean up a few things in my general knitting vacinity and then prepare to stalk the Sock Wars website to download the pattern.  Then it will be a frenzied knitting fiasco? I think I can get both cuffs and potentially both legs knit to the heel before bedtime, depending of course on how complex the sock patterns are, and on how much of an attention span I actually have.  Sometimes I can knit for hours and hours and be fine, and other times, at the end of a long work week my brain is applesauce.  Only time will tell.  I have a bottle of Wolf Blass available, and a very large Lindt milk chocolate bar with almonds hiding somewhere in the house where the Husbeast won't find it and thief/eat it on me? so I think I have all of my bases covered. 

I hope to give you all a blow by blow accounting of the Sock Wars experience? or should I say stitch by stitch?
