Dueling Club ~ Round Three Specs

Hello, everyone!!
I'm so sorry. I meant to get in here to do this yesterday, but the day got away from me. I can't show you my dueling chart because I'm at work and I don't have the program to convert my excel spreadsheet into a .pdf, so I'll just have to tell you who is dueling who in the next round.

Sock Bracket

Lily of Flitwick vs. Lucretia Plunkett

Minerva Kwikspell vs. Miranda Moonstone

Hat Bracket

Cressida Townsbury vs. Cassandra Grubbly-Plank

Agatha Vablasky sits this round out and moves on to the 4th round because she does not have an opponent. The 4th round is the final round!! Woot! Woot!! And the tension builds :)

Both the hat bracket and the sock bracket will begin tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. PST

Do we need to use the specified yarn? I thought that was the requirement last time and almost had a fit because I had to go to four stores and ended up an hour from home to find Lion Wool-ease, I loved and was quite pleased with the resaults but I was curious about the requirement

Cassandra Grubbly-Plank said...

I sure hope not, because it would take me forever to order and receive knit picks yarn!

Go Lily!!

(Actually, I don't even really understand what y'all are doing, I just know you knit WAY faster than me, but I gotta throw a little love to my spoilee from last term! I hope you all have fun!!)

I wasn't sure if the specs were to make it more of a challenge or if they were just suggestions

Winnie said...

They are suggestions. With the sock bracket she let you know what she used, but she also says than any DK worsted weight yarn will do.

Same goes for that hat bracket. Use the next best substitute.
