The pattern was released to all of us "Hat Attackers" at 9am EST. I myself took my time in plunging into the creation of my weapon. I first went to the gym and returned at 9:30am. I then casually printed the pattern and gave it a quick perusal (as any other assassin professional would do). At that moment I realized I needed fuel before hunkering down to my task. With my hunger being satisfied, at 10:20am I focused all of my attention to the pattern, my needles and yarn.
I ended up documenting the completion of my task by photographing the weapon with a watch every so often. This being the scrapbooker coming out in me. I won't bore you with those photos and just get to the final product.

Now I am in the waiting game to see when my assassin will strike. I fear it will be soon. Very soon. On my assassin's Ravelry page, she don's a completed weapon. Hmmm. At least I know I struck my target before my demise. Muuuaaaahhhhh!
