The Great Yarn Cage Match Smackdown!

Clearly, I've taken leave of my senses.

Yup. I signed up for Sock Wars. I was pondering it. I was thinking I'd watch from the "sidelines." And then one of the participants left this comment on the website:

"Bring it."

And I thought "oh, no, she didn't!" Next thing I know, I'm hitting the send button on my sign up e-mail.

Yikes. Just yikes.

Thank God I just learned the Magic Loop kniting-two-things-at-one-time technique. I'm using it right now on the sleeves of Cleaves (like the rain in Spain?).

On the lighter, softer side of the web knit-o-sphere, I ordered my yarn from Black Bunny Fibers and can't wait to get it! I'm thinking, well, I was thinking a sock. But maybe I should now rethink that one. Or practice for SW. Hmm. Maybe I should do a toe-up sock, in case that's my first Sock Wars pattern. Good God, this is so silly.
How cool is this? Franklin designed a new button for the Black Bunny Yarn Along:

Awww. Now isn't that nice!? Can't we all just hold hands and get along? Sing a few rounds of "It's a Small World"?


Well, then I'm gonna smack you down with a Potomatus... Tomatopus... Pomatomus . Whatever! Just bring it! Knitta, please!

Good luck, Sock Warrior - you are a braver than I!

Howdy, assassin. I'm your target. (I googled your e-mail and found your blog.) I opted for the classic DPNs one-at-a-time, so I'm likely gonna get dead. I should be knitting at this ungodly hour, however, I'm instead commenting at an hour devoid of deity instead. So howdy. Happy socking.
