I’ve sent my first sock wars socks! Actually, I sent them a week ago, they’ve been received and the pair I have to complete has arrived at my house already. I’m a bit late in posting. It’s pretty exciting, overall. As of yesterday, over 400 people have been eliminated from the contest, and I am still in. I am hoping to get this next sock done (I had to do the complete second sock and am 3/4 thru) today and get it out tomorrow. Unfortunately, this contest has little to do with skill or speed. More luck than anything. The girl who is making socks for me is in South Korea and she has not indicated if she is alive or dead on the roster, so I am in a bit of limbo. I’m sure it will take a long time for a shipment to get here from SK, and our mail man is not the most reliable guy, so who knows if my socks are on the way. Well, I’ll get a new pair of socks however it works out. I think most people think I’m a bit loopy for taking this contest so seriously. I’m enjoying working with new yarns most of all. 🙂
So here’s my first pair of Detinators.
Project specs: Detinator socks from Sock Wars 3. The pattern is custom made for the contest. I used Fyberspates yarn in a colorway that appears to be unavailable. My “victim” loved them since they are one of a kind! I used size 2 metal DPN’s to get gauge. This is my fastest sock knit to date- one week from start to finish!
