WIP: Grasshopper 1 side done!

Bottom of foot
Grasshopper how I love thee!

This is a really fast knit. I only did one increase section on the leg because I don’t like socks too high. Even then it still is kinda long (for me) so it slouches a bit. But still, I’m happy with the way it pooled into nice stripes and I’m in love with the color. If I had to do it again, I would either do the smaller size or use size US1 needles and not even do the increases and keep it to ankle socks.

Your sock looks great–I love the stripes and the lacy top. I’m hoping to cast on mine this weekend, but I need to free up some needles first!

I’m only half done on the 1st one [work gets in the way darn] but I can’t wait to be wearing these. Aren’t they lovely? I hate to even put them down!

OoooO! I can’t wait to get my kit (It’s already arrived but I have it mailed to a super secret location and I haven’t gone to pick it up yet)

The socks are absolutely gorgeous, the color the patern ::sigh:: thanks for the spoiler (I love them!)

Those are some purty socks. I’m waiting for the circs to come in the mail, but I’m loving the blogs.

Really beautiful! I was wondering, what is your foot circumference and what size did you do? Hope that isn’t too personal ;-)

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.
