Bye SP10, hello Sock-It-To-Me!

Well, yesterday was the official end of SP10. My upstream pal has sent me the last package, but it hasn’t arrived yet, due to the postal strike. It should get here this week, I can’t wait to get it. My, the time has just flown by and I had a lot of fun this time around. My downstream pal, Tini, is such a great person. I really enjoyed reading her blog and figuring out things that she would like. You can see what I got for her here, here, and here. I really hope I get to meet her one day, especially since she’s not that far away!

My upstream pal has been really good about keeping herself hidden. BUT just last week, she made a mistake and posted a comment on my blog using her “real” email/name and not the secret one. So I know her name (Nicola) and I know she’s in the UK, but I don’t know her blog. And I can find it out quite easily, in fact, but I’m choosing not to, just to keep it a surprise. I am really excited to “meet” her (meaning read her blog) and find out who has been sending me all this great stuff. You can see what she gave me so far here, here and here. And there is one more package on it’s way still. She has really great taste in yarn!

OK, so now that THAT’s over, I signed up for the Sock it to Me sock swap and it will be a secret swap. Same thing as secret pal, but you have to knit your pal some socks. Looking forward to it! I’m also part of the Summer of Socks KAL, but I’m so confused as to what I need to do that I’m just not going to do anything. I know, lazy ass. I know I’m supposed to send my “blog reader” a weekly email, but really, I don’t have the time for that, so I’m just going to quietly sit it out.

Hi Kris,

the things you got me were really cool :) (and are still) I’ll figure out if I could get the day off in September and if I would get a cheap airfare because by train it will take me 12 hours to get to Benediktbeuren…. Otherwise I’ll host the Patternreview weekend in Octobre here in Kiel :)

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.
