At 12:00 PM Eastern time, the games begin.
My mission: knit a pair of socks and mail to my assassin quicker than she/he mails them to me.
It should be loads of fun. From the website:
The largest, bloodiest, extreme knitting tournament in the world.
Sign-up, and you will receive a top-secret file containing your target’s information. To “kill” your target, you must follow the pattern to make a weapon (a pair of socks) for your event, and mail it to your target. Your target is “dead” when they receive your weapon. Your target then sends their incomplete weapon to you, along with their target’s information, and you complete their weapon to kill their target. At the same time you are trying to kill your target, your assassin is trying to kill you. Join us and find out how exciting a trip to the mailbox can be as you open it each day to find out if you have killed, or whether you have been killed.
For sock knitters, this is a chance to show off skills, knit for someone other than your kid, and to have a reason to wait for the mailman. I also have a hidden agenda:
Prove the Mister and Sleeping Beauty WRONG.
The two claim I constantly have UFO’s about the house. That’s not all the way true because I usually frog most of my abandoned projects.
I have my tools, target, and time.
Let the knitting begin!
