South Tyrolean Mankitten in Lederhosen!

Scout, of Scout’s Swag, loves Knitters Uncensored so much that she made a yarn colorway just for us! :) We took forever deciding on the colors and we thought that it HAD to have “lederhosen” and we wanted some blue in there as well. So the yarn is called “South Tyrolean Mankitten in Lederhosen”. It will make sense if you listen to the podcast. The golds and browns represent the lederhosen and the blue is of the blue sky of Tyrol. I love it so much, can’t wait to cast it on!!! Scout is really an amazing dyer, she has so many amazing colorways – go order from her now!!!

oooh DON’T TEMPT ME ( besides I do have no brown in my palette, so brown socks would not match ANYTHING)

Hallo, Kris,

das sind phantastische Farben – muss ich mir gleich merken und mal selbst färben ;-)

Auch die Wollqualität sieht super aus! Ist das eine reine Merino?

Viele liebe Grüße

You are silly. Let people know that it’s totally a colorway I’ll dye. A bunch of people have ordered it already!

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.
