Babsy or anyone else who travels to Europe frequently:
when in Paris last January, I unknowingly formulated what I now like to call my "Knitting 8K" through the Marais. Found 4 different knitting stores in Paris all in relatively the same neighborhood and spent a wonderful afternoon going from store to store. I'll be in Berlin in a few weeks. Does anyone know good knitting stores there? Would love to do the Berlin Knitting 8K!! lol

Hi, would you mind telling us the names (or approximate addresses) of the stores?

Thanks, Klara

Hi Kade! I have all the info at home but I remember La Drogurie (liked that one the best.) Entree Des Fournisseurs was wonderful with a truly unbelievable selection of buttons. Lil Weasel was just so-so but the problem may have been that I went there right after La Drogurie.... Do you know any stores in Berlin?

No, sorry, haven't been to Berlin for ages and when I was there, I wasn't knitting. But the words to search for are: Stricken, Wolle, Wollgeschäft, Strickladen - with a bit of luck Google should find you something (I leave you to it because you most probably have the faster internet connection).

I know La Droguerie (they had the pointy yarn needle I was looking for), if that was the best one, there's no reason to find the others. Incidentally, La Droguerie is a chain or a franchise - every major French city seems to have one (just in case you find yourself elsewhere in France).

Happy knitting! Klara
