Hello from Munich!

Hi there! I am Kris (aka Bockstark Knits) and I am an American living in Munich, Germany. I am a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) of twin 2.5 year old boys. The only way I keep my sanity is to knit, knit, knit.

I was born and raised in Hawaii, but my husband and I call Seattle home. We moved here about 1.5 years ago from Seattle, wanting a new adventure. My husband got a job and we sold off everything and moved here right at the start of the loooooong winter of 2006. We are pretty much settled in now and live a 1/2 German, 1/2 American life. We want our kids to be bilingual and we hope to be too but German is damn hard. Has anyone seen the SNL skit "Nuni"? That's what it's like to us sometimes. haha!

I have been knitting for about 16 years, off and on. It's been mostly off for the last few years, but then I started kniting socks since October of 2006 and it came back with a vengeance! But sadly, that's right about the time I moved here and let's just say that people in the US are very lucky to have so much choice. I have since joined the SNB meetings here and have enjoyed the company online and offline immensely. It's the only place I can talk like an adult during the days!

I am so excited to be a part of such a cool project and I can't wait to see what it looks like completed!

I'm glad you talked me into this too! It's looking like an awesome KAl!

Oh, and did you notice we are the top two contributors to the Cookie Patterns pool on Flickr?
