Detail of the boyfriend sock

So, after I made the decision to abandon the Jaywalker, I immediately set my sights on making the Boyfriend socks from Slippedstitch. It is a really nice pattern and I am doing it with the Wollmeise sock yarn in the Rittersporn colorway. Just casting on has lifted a lot of stress off of me and I am enjoying it immensely. It was the right decision to not finish the Jaywalker. I may never do that pattern again after all this trouble!

The boyfriend sock is a handsome beast. If only it were as handsome as the man modeling it, there would be a real scandal!

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.
