Sock Wars IV

Sock Wars IV

The largest, bloodiest, extreme knitting tournament in the world.

Sign-up, and you will receive a top-secret file containing your target's information. To "kill" your target, you must follow the pattern to make a weapon (a pair of socks) for your event, and mail it to your target. Your target is "dead" when they receive your weapon. Your target then sends their incomplete weapon to you, along with their target's information, and you complete their weapon to kill their target. At the same time you are trying to kill your target, your assassin is trying to kill you. Join us and find out how exciting a trip to the mailbox can be as you open it each day to find out if you have killed, or whether you have been killed.
Deadline to register for Sock Wars IV is May 1, 2009

Dossiers are emailed May 9 and May 10, 2009

Killing starts May 15, 2009

Knitting vs Crochet

Any fiber crafter worth his/her yarn stash can tell the difference between knit and crocheted items. And, oh how we delight ourselves in our superiority when we see one mistaken for the other. Fashion magazines often display " knitted lace tops" when in fact they are really crocheted; catalogs show us " crocheted sweaters" that are actually knit. We gleefully piont out these mistakes to who ever will listen. People who participate in neither of these crafts are woefully unable to distinguish between the construction of these fabrics, but we stitch mavens find it practically blasphemous to refer to one as the other.

Yet there is but one mistake that I have frequently witnessed, both crocheters and knitters make, and that is to believe that crochet ing and knitting are interchangeable. I've even seen books promising that you'll be able to make sometihing using knitting the same when crocheted. The fact of hte matter is, is it just can't happen! Knitting and crocheting are NOT two ways of achieving the same outcome!!!

Crocheting is definitly easier than knitting but both are equally talanted and masters of their trade. It is NOT a bad thing to learn them both! The feud has to END!
