bow before them - the sock war socks of doom are finished!!
pattern: the "socks of doom" for sock wars 2006
yarn: debbie bliss cashmerino dk, nearly two skeins (i have about 15g left)
needles: clover bamboo dpns, 3.5mm
time to knit: about 8 hours total!! the shorter leg helped, as did the thicker yarn. not to mention a lot of coffee, a few glasses of wine, and some delicious chocolates thoughtfully provided by the resident sock appreciator - after all, an army marches on its stomach, or so they say.
i can't put them in the post until tomorrow morning though, and it seems that an awful lot of the people on the forum were already done & had their socks mailed yesterday!! that's some crazy fast knitting - and here i thought i had been really speedy. fortunately for me, my target is uk-based, so provided the royal mail does their stuff i may still have a chance to assassinate at least one person before i get killed myself (it's good to have small, achievable goals, i think).
