Free crappy yarn

OK, so I was going through my stash today and decided that I will never, ever use my 6 skeins of Mystical Creations yarn. Anybody want it? I am too lazy to take a picture. It is a light fingering weight – 10 sts to the in kind. Ugh. If you do a search on this site or my flickr site, you can find pics. Unfortunately due to high shipping costs, I will have to limit it to someone in Europe. OR if you want to pay shipping to anywhere else, then that’s fine too.

You’re probably wise to dump it. I used the wool-silk and had a nightmare with bleeding yarn. I traded my one skein of fingering weight to someone who swore that they always wash their socks by hand anyway. I wouldn’t take any more MCY yarn if someone gave it to me AND offered to pay the shipping! (Sorry!)

I would love to give the yarn a new home! I’m on a yarn diet, but free yarn doesn’t count, right? I live in Germany so postage wouldn’t be high too ;-)

I’ll take it! i’f Javede has not already taken it. I’m in the UK. I’ll pay for my shipping too. I just cannot resist any free yarn bleed or not.

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.
