Sock Wars III starts off May 9th, so get ready! From the Sock Wars site:
If you are brave enough sign up to do battle you battle you will be emailed a top secret assassination dossier on 9th May 2008. This file contains the details of your target and an exclusive, never-been-published-before knitting pattern with which assassinate them.
To kill your target you must knit them a pair of socks in the pattern (your “weapon”) and mail it to them. Once your target receives your parcel they are dead and must post their death on the website.
They must also send you details of their intended target (who becomes your next person to assassinate) along with their unfinished knitting (which becomes your new weapon). All the while this is going on, someone has been assigned YOU as their target! Prepare to live in fear… kill or be killed!
