Last post I gave you all a glimpse at the current project i'm working on, along side the yarn I recently bought. I told you how I've been finding it difficult to find a good variety of yarn here in Stuttgart. Well I hate to say it....... It looks like I spoke too soon!!! EEEEEEK!
On monday Dennis and I payed a visit to the yarn shop where Dennis had purchased the gorgeous Noro yarn he is currently knitting with.
Dennis had told me about this cute knit cafe. I had yet to pay it a visit, as it is a bit of a journey from where we live.
Monday was my day off from work and the weather was yucky, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to travel across the city and go see if this shop really was the treasure that Dennis claimed it was.
Das Wollecafe (The Woolcafe) was the name of the shop and it certainly was a gem!!!
A clean, bright shop that just oozed happiness!
This is what I'd been looking for in Stuttgart city centre, luxurious yarns in shades to die for!
Yarn that was the little bit "different" to make an extra special project.
Vibrant colours throughout the whole shop!
It makes me feel giddy just looking back at the pictures I took.
The shop also stocked a great range of accessories!
Felted hearts, balls and buttons to add those final touches to a project.
A nice selection of craft books, filled with ideas and patterns
Of course there were also project about the shop. Made by the lovely owner Susanne, who also offered classes in knitting and crochet.
I could spot many shawls, felted shoes, a blooming flower cushion:
and some cheery crocheted ornaments hanging from the budding twigs near the entrance:
Of course this was no ordinary yarn store. It was a cafe as well!
Dennis and I were able to sit and drink coffee after we had worked up a thirst from all of the yarn browsing.
We sat and worked on our projects chatting with Susanne and her very lovely customers. It was nice to meet people with the same enthusiasm that Dennis and I have towards all things yarny.
It was also good for me to practise some conversational German! :-)
Thank you DAS WOLLCAFÉ for making Dennis and I feel so welcome. We will definitely be visiting again soon!!
