We are in the final days of the Sock Wars KAL and the Empire and Alliance are neck and neck but the Rebels have the upper hand at the moment up 23 to the Empire's 20. As more and more Finished Objects (FO) are posted the balance swings back and forth so it's really anyone's game at this point. Some of the FOs have made me chuckle out loud with projects names like "They See Me Rollin'" for a pair of vanilla socks in the BB-8 color way and a "to scale" pair of Droids from runhusky that has a several inches shorter R2 to a much taller C3 (which I shared a photo of in the On a Tuesday post)! And some of them are crazy brilliant like Casdena's U-Turn Socks. 

And Noknitsherlocks fun mix em up shortie socks:

And her Voodroid...

Seriously, have you ever seen something so evil look so cute? Probably yes if you have ever seen a cat, but still (just a joke folks- I love cats)! This Voodoo You Love Me? doll is adorable and makes me want to cast on an army of them. 

Here are a few more outstanding socks from the FO thread:

So keep 'em coming because the FO thread will lock on June 5th. 

The next pair in the Star Wars Saga is Jedi Mind Trick: Anakin and Luke Skywalker.

There is a Preview listing up in the shop as of today and the listing will go live on June 19th, Father's Day (see what I did there). The Jedi Mind Trick set will be available in either an OCD or Combo skein just like the previous two sets. Also like the Droid round, the Jedi round will have a second pair of color ways announced a few weeks later. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Sock Wars Poll. Your voices have been heard loud and clear and here are the stats:

By overwhelming demand the Star Wars Saga will include Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. Most of these color ways will appear in the third and final round of the Saga. To conclude the series we will have a final battle in the Must Stash group to find out who will control the galaxy!

 

 

 

 

I love seeing your projects in Ravelry and on social media sites so please continue to post them and remember to use the hashtag #muststashyarn or #msysockwars so I can find and heart them.
