Isn’t this gorgeous?

Gusset of coolness!

On the foot

So, here is the secret project that I’ve been working on. It’s the Fratello socks by Yarnissima! I am always on the lookout for great socks for men and this one is a winner. The pattern is fairly simple, purl side out, with a little bit of travelling sts. The design of the sock is genius, and if you’ve seen her patterns online, you’ll know that Yarnissima is the queen of cool gussets! I only have one sock done, and will hopefully get the second sock done sometime before Christmas!

The yarn is an exclusive color from Wollmeise and I LOVE this coffee brown!!! You can buy the pattern by itself or get the yarn+pattern in a kit. Contact Yarnissima at yarnissima (at) gmail (dot) com for more details and how to purchase.

Holy cow, are those beautiful. Arrugh, I had already decided on a Christmas project for my husband! I guess I need to throw those plans out the window. Thanks for posting!

Hi! I like your podcast, it is both interesting, happily informal and fun!
As others above mentioned I too have searched the Yarnissima blog, tried contact me in order to buy the kit with yarn, but nothing happens. Could you please forward my e-mail adress to her. Happy knitting!

Holy crap, that pattern is stunning, it has me salivating – esp. with that yarn/pattern combo – beautiful.

They look amazing. They look like “Timeeaters”, but I think, the results of this amazing pattern is worth it.

Gorgeous! I love Claudia’s browns and this pattern. I don’t care if it’s for men, it’s still great.

I know it’s ridiculous to add on, but those are absolutely beautiful and they restore my faith in sock knitting. I am loving knitting socks, but those actually look like fun.

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.
