Copied from a post regarding sock wars...
So I'm thinking of doing something like this, but with hair. Is anyone else game? I think it would be freakin hilarious. I could whip up a design pattern and set the date. Then I kill you!"Have you all been following the Sock Wars?
Mims mentioned it to me a couple of weeks ago but I didn't quite follow it all.
The "battle" was started by Julie Gardner of Belfast, Northern Ireland, when she heard about an urban Assassin-style game that involves "killing" targets with water or Nerf guns). But in the world of knitting, the weapon of choice is .¤.¤.. a pair of socks.
Folks who take part in the game get an address and shoe size and race to complete a pair of socks (everyone works off the same pattern, designed by Julie) and mail them off to their target before another knitter, the "assassin," tries to do the same thing to them. Get a pair of socks in the mail and ding-dong, you're dead. You then wrap up the socks you were working on and send them to your assassin, who must complete them and mail them off before getting the dreaded sock death knoll."
