Kieler week-end (ikke woche!)

Ja, jeg var jo så i Kiel og besøge søde Tini (og Heiko) i week-enden. Det var skønt at se hende igen og at hænge ud og snakke! Vi strikkede og ordnede verdenssituationen og drak lidt vin og så gav Tini mig lige lidt garn med hjem..

The Yarn I got from Tini - The red Incense is already becoming mittens

Og om lørdagen var der så Yarn Crawl i Kiel. Vi mødtes med en masse søde tyske kvinder  (omkring 20, tror jeg) og var i forskellige garnbutikker. Det første sted købte jeg ikke noget, med så tog vi hen til Wollwerkstatt Kiel!

A sign in the garden. If you get to Kiel, go there! Seriously!

Fantastisk sted! Meget lille butik – super super super lækkert garn!  Nøøøj! Så var jeg glad for at jeg ikke havde købt noget det første sted og stadig havde masser af Euro tilbage! farverne, kvaliteterne, jamen altså. Og indkøbskurvene var flade blomster/frugtkurve – super!

See? The happy, crazy look youget when surounded with such nice yarn!

Efter det (vi fik også kaffe og kage og snakkede) tog vi til en café ved kanalen og sad der og strikkede. Over 20 kvinder. Det var et noget usædvanligt syn og mange forbipasserende kiggede da også lige en ekstra gang!!

Vi tog hjem ved 4 tiden, så vi havde lidt tid til en hyggelig lørdag aften. Og jeg blev faktisk færdig med Rasmus’ SMS vanter  (Ravelry link)- og de er godkendt og i brug  (hvilket faktisk betyder at han elsker dem!)- mere om dem i en senere post..

So, I went to Kiel to see Tini (and Heiko) and I had a great time. It was great to see her and hang out and talk and knit! And Tini cleared some stuff from her stash and gave me yarn (first pic). :-)

On saturday it was time for a Kiel Yarn Crawl. We met up with about 20 German women and went yarnshopping. The first place, I didn’t buy any yarn, nothing really appealed to me. But I did get some tiny sheep buttons. And then we went to the most fantastic store:  Wollwerkstatt Kiel! A very small shop with the most faboulous yarns! The colours! The textures! The shopping baskets (flat fruit baskets – no plastic here!) LOVE! I was so happy that I didn’t get anything the other place and still had plenty of yarn money Euro left!

After that wonderful experience we went to a café near the canal and knitted – more than 20 women. A very unusual sight, and a lot of people had a second look at us!

Tini and I left at around 4, so we still had time for a nice Saturday evening, before I had to get an early start home. Oh, and I finished the Text-Mittens for Rasmus (Ravelry link). They are more than approved (=he loves them), he is wearing them and I’ll put a pattern up really  really soon – and write more in the next post.
