Scrubs- and Gothenburg - Strikk

Strikk has moved location in Gothenburg, of course I did not know. But the shop now looks and feels like Uldstedet in Copenhagen. Anyhow, they have a range of Twinny, unfortunatly not the angora mix variant, but what a goodie yarn-shop. Not only did I find the last Noro Koshoran that I have "half a sweater" in. They were filled of new interesting brands, and of course a whole lot of old brands in new colours. What I really liked is the display. Also a yarnshop who has all "sizes" of yarn, chunky, aran and super thin. Especially I like the very handspun alpacka in natural greys. Fat and felt (ha) great. Anyhow. A very pleasurable visit, lot of people and nice personnel. Great for you. Gothenburg is knitting. And the buttons I found is a perfect match. Also got som really weird feathers. Will be a great bag. Im sure it is already out of fashion, but so what. It should be fun anyhow. So, all that yarn on the counter is MINE ;-) and the feathers..... Surprisingly , they were rather cheap. These cellar shops are just hugging. And look at those shelfs. Yummie yummie....This was the "exotic" shelf, I assumed the most "plastic" sorry, acrylic one.... Anne Blatt is still good. You can spot the färgkraft hand coloured (from swedish sheep) hank in the great colour Soy latte (or maybe Caffe latte)... She is so clever with her yarn names Margret.
A happy visit. After that, hemslöjden felt really boring. Very exiting embroyderiy pillows, but no, not the pleasure of squeezing these little dumplings. Anyhow, I had some good hours on the apple last night. Now it is time to sink in to the old re-runs of Scrubs. So good. And breakfast with hubby. Better than any hotel ;-) Take care out there.
