Taste of Germany update

OK folks, this is really happening!!! Woohoo! I put my order in to the dyers and I’m giving them 3 weeks to get it to me. I am making 10 kits and it will be first come, first served. Whenever I post the final data + picture, I will tell you from what time I am accepting orders. From there, I will take the first 10 emails I get and invoice them through paypal. I am still trying to finalize how much it’s going to cost but it looks like 70 euros will be it. And I was wrong on the shipping, it’s going to be 12 euros worldwide and 6 euros within the EU. If there are German buyers (which I doubt), it will be even less. It’s just going to be the yarn and a little info on each dyer (no extras, sorry!). I will post a picture here of what the yarns will look like and you can decide from there if you want it or not. This kit will be “blue” and will contain:

1 skein Wollmeise sock yarn
1 skein Marisilk (sea silk lace weight)
1 skein regular sock yarn (75% merino/25% Polyacryl)
1 skein Merino/Silk/Ramie sock yarn
1 skein 100% merino lightweight sock yarn

If you have any questions, please let me know.

I can’t wait, dude! I hope to be one of the first-served. :) Seeing as how I used to live in Germany, I’m sure I can justify this purchase, even though I made a certain promise to myself only just this morning. Right?

Forget my yarn diet. I want some of this! :D

I think this is like there being no actual calories in restaurant food: yarn purchased from overseas doesn’t actually break the yarn diet.

Great… another blog to stalk in hopes I spend more money on something that I already have enough of, just none of the German kind.

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.
