My first Monkeys!

I realized that I knit this one so quick that I didn’t even post a WIP picture. This weekend

I finished my first Monkey socks! This is going to a friend that I grew up with. Her birthday is on the 30th (ack!) and I finished these exactly on her birthday so they will be in the mail soon. I love, love, love the brightness of these socks and I’m hoping that it will help her get through the rainy days in Seattle. I made them a little short because I don’t think she’s a person to wear very high socks. We both have “ample” (ahem!) calves so things just don’t stay up very well. I like them so much that I think I may knit another pair (even shorter) for myself with the leftover yarn. I think I will change the heel to be a slipped stitch heel since I don’t like the way the stockinette heel looks so plain. Pattern: Monkey by CookieA ( Yarn: Wollmeise sock yarn Sonne colorway Started: April 24, 2007 Completed: April 30, 2007 Size/Needles: One size (64 sts), US2 Pattern notes: I did 4 pattern repeats for the cuff, instead of the 6. This is for a friend’s birthday. I really, really love the extremely bright colors. It is so bright that my camera can’t quite capture it!

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.
