Have been trawling through my FOs and blog/ravelry pages etc and thought I'd share this pattern here.  Totally heart this one - it's my go-to for new baby presents now, and am thinking of doing a Christmas spin on it...

yarnmonkey's at it again.  Who's up for a Sock War? more info at www.yarn-monkey.blogspot.com

Pasted from site below:-

Are YOU ready for Sock Wars?

Sock Wars is a bloody, international death by sock tournament in which there can be only one survivor.

The Tournament
On 22nd September you will be emailed a top secret file containing the details of your target and a pattern. To kill your target you must knit them the pair of socks in the pattern and mail it to them.

Once your target receives your parcel they are dead and must post their death on the fallen comrades section of yarnmonkeys site.

They must also immediately 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.

If by the end of the tournament (24th November) there is still more than one survivor it becomes a case of kill the monkey. The first of those left standing to kill me by sock wins!

The nice bit
At the end of the tournament everyone except the sole survivor will have received a deadly pair of socks.
The survivor will get swag.
