To construct your weapon you will need to avail yourself of some yarn and pointy sticks.
32 sts = 10cm (4") on 2.75mm needles (US 2)
I was wondering if the pattern would be done with doubled yarn. The previous wars have been done with DK weight. It looks like this one will be done with regular single strand of sock weight. This will slow virtually everybody down. I expect the first wave of carnage will be spread out over the first two weeks or so.
I wonder how many needle sizes I'll have to go down to get gauge?
