- I made these DK-weight socks to "kill" my assigned victim in Sock Wars. It took me approximately 9 hours of knitting time to complete these, with time taken out for correcting an error in the heel turn and waiting a couple days to receive the shoe size of my victim. I will NEVER again try to knit socks this quickly (at least not ribbed socks), because I temporarily injured my hand in the process.
I was killed by my assassin a couple of days later, so my participation in Sock Wars was rather short, but it was fun.
