Munich is always worth a visit
but for us crocheters & knitters out there
there's another reason to travel to Bavaria's capital:
Petra Perle has her own yarn store in the city center now!
"Die Wolle" ("The Yarn")!
Actually I was on my way to visit my parents
but when my bus arrived in Munich
I thought I have to take the chance
& make a surprise visit to see a dear online friend!
Actually Petra Perle isn't just a crocheter
- she is pretty famous in Bavaria:
She is also a singer, writing articles for newspapers,
writing books, is a natural born comedian
& is also having art exhibitions!
Just an incredible allround artist!
When I arrived in Müllerstraße 50
I got a heartwarming welcome -
Petra Perle's yarn store
is just an amazing place!
It's kind of a museum for crochet art
& filled with all the creations
she has made in the past 3 years!
Lovely friends of Petra Perle
were coming around as well:
Helmi (Strickspass mit Helmi),
his lovely husband Manfred
(They are all wearing handmade creations
of Petra Perle for this photo!)
Beautiful yarn & amazing crochet fashion!
...and in between:
Petra Perle's Freeform Crochet Art!
...more yarn & fashion...
...and have a look at the ceiling!
EVERYTHING is crocheted -
even the lampshades
& some umbrellas!
But the best thing about this
yarn store is Petra Perle!
She is a wonderful crochet teacher
& always up for giving tips!
(While having a glass of wine!)
I just love this bag!
...and it's overwhelming to see her
freeform crochet face in real life!
It's much bigger than I thought:
It fits perfectly in a big hula hoop!
...and of course the chairs
are all covered in yarn as well!
What a wonderful coat!
Totaqlly my style!
Love the yarn presentation
outside of "Die Wolle"!
...Petra Perle's 3 wheel bike! :-)
And if I ever need a rollator
I will definitely
need such a walker in neon!
(Proudly wearing my new
Petra Perle hat on this pic!)
I got so many of these
Haha, I will just give every crocheter
I will meet one of them!
I'm unpatiently waiting for
Petra Perle's first crochet book -
it will get published in April!
And no worries:
It's written in german
but there are crochet charts included
for all hilarious creations!
So no need to learn german, haha!
(My plan for 2016:
Crocheting all the patterns!)
It was so lovely meeting Petra Perle
& having a beer with her while crocheting!
If you ever come to Munich
don't forget to visit her!
(Opening times to find here!)
Hugs to Helmi of Strickspass mit Helmi,
Manfred & Sabine!
It's been a real pleasure
And of course:
Much love to all my princesses
Your friend Dada
