Bring it on

My wrists hurt, my fingers are calloused, but I am finished with my first Sock Wars weapon! These lovelies shall go in the mail first thing tomorrow morning to kill off Jessica in Portland.

Yes, I'm in pain, and I'm tired, but it was worth the effort. After all, this is WAR!!! I actually really like these socks. They're so bright and cheery, perfect for cloudy winter days. I might have to get some more of this yarn - it was my first experience with self-striping yarn and it was fun. It was also great making socks with the DK(ish) weight yarn, as they went SO fast. I have a feeling this is going to be over very quickly, because it seems from reading the Sock Wars forums that most people spent all weekend with their socks, and several people mailed them on Saturday (which is insane, by the way, since we got the pattern Friday afternoon, and most of us didn't have our victim assignment/shoe size until Saturday). I'm sure I'll be killed quickly but my assassin is in Kentucky so that might give me an extra days respite unless she goes for the overnight shipping. I plan normal first-class mail; with my target only in Portland I think they should arrive on Tuesday regardless of shipping method.

There may be hiking photos tomorrow but for now I'm exhausted and off to bed. Hope everyone had a good weekend!

What? You're not going to deliver them in person and use it as an excuse to visit?
