Front view of the Grasshoppers

Bottom view of the Grasshoppers

I am finally done with my Grasshoppers. I would’ve been done sooner but I had to get my Monkey’s off to my friend and my Gothic Spire off to my SP (btw, she really liked them!). Overall I enjoyed knitting these but the fit isn’t that great. I think sometime in the future I will take off a couple inches in the leg and make it shorter. The yarn is just fabulous, I loved knitting with it. Although some people have complained that it’s not that great a yarn when you have to frog. Which, that may not be good for me!!! I just washed them and maybe hoping they’ll shrink a little…

Pattern: Grasshopper from Rockin’ Sock Club April 2007 kit
Yarn: Socks That Rock Silkie in Walking on the Wild Tide (in kit)
Needles: Knit Picks classic circs US2
Started: April 24, 2007
Completed: May 4, 2007

Ja, das sind wohl wirklich “bockstarke” Socken geworden :-))
Ich liebe diese STRs auch, werde aber wahrscheinlich ein anderes Muster stricken.

Viele liebe Grüße und danke für Deinen Kommentar in meinem Blog – dadurch habe ich Dein Blog gefunden und gleich in meinen Feed-Reader aufgenommen!

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.
