SOCK WARS!
YarnMonkey, of Knitting World Cup fame is now hosting SockWars! It looks like it will be a blast!

I now have to decide it I'm up for this war...I only have 5 or 600 other things to knit :rollseyes: Which makes me lean toward doing my regular knitting rather than knitting and shipping socks all over the world. But, then again, it really sounds like fun............

Any of you going to join....I know that you guys have got to be more decisive than I :rollseyes:

It sounds really fun, but I'm not sure I can knit fast enough...
Admittedly. Knowing that at any moment I could get killed would inspire me I'm sure.
My family: What're you DOING?! It's 3 AM!
Me: I HAVE TO KNIT THESE BEFORE THEY GET ME!

Yup. Sounds like it. I think it'd be fun. Unless they were doing some crazy lace pattern and you're all like "wtf?"

Oh my god that looks like so much fun. I'm horrible with second-sock syndrome, but for this I might have to do it.....eep.

It'll mean I have to buy more sock yarn, too. Oh dear.

Aidan, do you know how boring freshman year large lecture classes are? You can knit a whole sock during class! do it do it do it do it!

Besides, I think *I'm* going to do it, and I'm a NURSING student. No time to knit while on a hospital floor.

I'm terrified that if I don't pay close attention I'm going to miss some important part of college that will make me fail all my classes or something.

Irrational, but there it is.
....

...A whole sock you say? Hmmm
