(This post is especially for my friends, Kate, Cate, Mary, and Debra)
Right next to my food market is a little shopped called “Woll Street.” This is German for “Wool Street.” It is a Mecca for knitters, crocheters, and embroiderers. It is jammed with yarns and threads and necessaries.
As inspired as I was, I did not buy yarn. I bought a whole mess of embroidery thread and a new pattern for what is classically called a Sampler. The woman who owns the shop was delightful. I knew just enough German and she knew just enough English to make the transaction work. And she said she would order anything I needed that she didn’t usually carry! Now that is some service!
Well, I held out for almost 4 weeks. A think it’s a new record. Knitting might be in my future. Maybe. I’ll need to learn better German or get a book with instructions in English.
Maybe. But let’s not get crazy here.
(Good Luck. Heh.)
