#2 done!

I actually finished this awhile ago, during the Taste of Germany madness so I didn’t get a chance to post. I also have another FO for one of my secret pals, so I can’t post it here. So frustrating to finish something and not get to show it off! This Montego bay is made with Handmaiden Sea Silk. I am addicted to Sea Silk. So soft, so shimmery, so smooth. Sucks that I have such an expensive addiction. I tell myself that it’s for gifts. And actually that is true. This one is going to my sister who likes light green. :)

Pattern: Montego Bay Scarf, Interweave Knits Summer 2007
Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk Lily Pond colorway
Needles: Knit Picks US8 options needles
Started: August 6, 2007
Completed: August 23, 2007

The only modification I made was to cut 14″ strips instead of 12″. I wanted the fringe to be a little bit longer than the last time.

Great colors… from the photo, it looks a little like Monsoon STR.

Gorgeous! I am in search of a one skein sea silk project – but this tempts me to buy another:) I got my Lederhosen from Scout today – it’s so purty!

Herrlich Рdie Farben! Und die Wolle leuchtet so sch̦n!
Ich selbst trage eigentlich keine Tücher und auch selten Schals, aber der hier würde mir auch gefallen ;-)

Liebe Grüße
Tanja

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.
