Started on my new socks

OK, so now onto more important things, my new socks. I originally was going to do another Pomatomus sock, but after looking around, I decided to do Baudelaire using Wollmeise Dani colorway. This is my first toe up sock yet and I really like that pattern. I’ve been feverishly working on it. I love this new yarn that I got, the only thing is that I don’t like that it knits up into stripes. It’s ok, the rich colors make up for it. The pattern is easy too, I really like toe up socks. I had to rip the beginning part out several times (just a couple of rows), but I finally understood it. The heel turn was fun too. So different! I’m almost done with one side (almost a record I think), and I can’t wait to start the next pair. I’m already planning…

Hi, hope you guys are starting to feel better. The boys sound amazing! And your socks must be terrific. My German girlfriend in Darmstadt used to knit her socks. Even though I was starting to make my own clothes (I was 12), I envied her such a unique ability. Hope Michael has a little more time off. Love, C.

What does bockstark mean (pronounced bok-shtark)? My crazy German friend, Matthias, made that word up to mean "really cool" and says that it is catching on in Garmisch. So I am helping him popularize the word! I thought if I ever opened a yarn store, I would call it "Bockstark Yarns". This blog is all about my projects, yarns and crazy ideas related to knitting and other crafts. Contact me at bockstark.knits(at)gmail(dot)com.
