Episode 34: Berlin Yarn Crawl!

Episode 34 is all about Berlin’s yarn scene! I set out to complete my own yarn crawl of the city and visited four of the best known LYS. Excellent people, great conversations with an IG friend, and lovely yarn! I include a wee pictorial tour at the beginning and the end and the podcast was filmed on location . . . in my hotel room. Lol πŸ™‚ Up for discussion: travel knitting and some great new-to-me knitting notions and needles!

Knit Together Project Info:
Lots of maker communities collaborate or play β€œtag” with fun objects, ideas, materials, or FOs. Right now, for example, there is an ice pick making the rounds with YouTubers . . . each person who receives the ice pick makes a video about using the object. I thought that we fiber-fellows could make up a collective project of our own. Won’t you join us?

  2. Oh wow, I’m so glad I finally had a chance to catch up with your travels! Although now I reeeeally want to get back to Berlin and check out these yarn shops. πŸ˜† I’m intrigued by your “crasy” needles as well… When I knit tubes, I mostly use 2 circular needles, and this looks like a logical (and cheaper!) compromise between that and DPNs. I’d love to know how you like using them! Hope you had a fun trip! πŸ˜€

    • Hey Helen! The Crasy needles are really great–I think it’s because of how I knit? I like to hold the needles with my pinkies and these are flexi enough for that–otherwise, I love DPNs. Been learning to enjoy the magic loop–but I have always wanted to try it your way with 2 circs. Someday! I hope all is well with you!


      • Hey Melissa! Yep, I’m happily knitting away as usual! πŸ˜€ Funny you should mention magic loop – I actually had a go at it again recently to teach it to my students. Interesting experience, but I think I’ll be sticking to 2 circulars. Once you try it, you’ll never go back… I promise! πŸ˜€

  3. hi there, it was fun to hear about your Berlin yarn crawl. Thanks for the shoutout for my shop The Woolly Thistle. I wanted to let you know that I carry Tukuwool’s sock yarn in many different shades as well as the fingering weight. The sock yarn is almost a sport weight and includes nylon for strength.

    • Hi Claire! I love your shop and I’m always checking out your new additions. Such fun to see all of the imported yarns and learn about new-to-me companies and indie dyers. And Tuku is fabulous! Thanks!! And I love your podcast as well πŸ™‚ ~Melissa
