The thing that should not be

After being frustrated all day, I realized that it was because I really hated this sock! I can’t believe that something I’m knitting can change my mood. After I finished the gussets, I realized that I may not have enough yarn to finish. That’s the drawback of top-down socks. Instead of facing this possible reality, I decided to just chuck the whole thing. I also can’t stand this yarn so if there’s anyone out there that wants 2 free (but used) balls of Knit Picks Essence Tweed in gray, let me know. I’ll be glad to hand them off!!!

Hm, I like the sock yarn and would like to have it. By the way, in the SKL you asked for sock blockers. Diana, our list mom, has a friend who makes them. Ask Diana.

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.
