I just found out about Hat Attack!!
It is similar to SockWars but using Hats instead.
The basic idea is, everybody signs up before a certain day.
You get given a 'target' to 'kill' and a hat pattern. On the designated day, the competition starts to get your hat knitted and mailed to your 'target' before you recieve one in the post. If you receive a hat before you have mailed one you are 'killed'. The winner is the last man standing.
It sounds fun, and it doesnt kick off until mid september so i can get my dissertation out of the way and save up some money for yarn and postage. This round is being sponsored by SWT because they have a new yarn out. The winner will get some yummy yarn, and as the pattern is designed to by knit in that yarn (although they don't have to be since peoples budgets etc vary), you are likely to end up with at least a yummy hat.
Is anybody else taking part? Oh it started on Ravelry so here is the Ravelry page about it. :woohoo:
