swell supplies.

wurzburg (2)b

looking for little denim iron-ons today, i was directed to würzburg's multi-level department store. they have a little section for that kind of stuff on the top floor, i was told. look what greeted me at the top of the escalator. pure trouble. this was only the yarn part of the craft section - and the whole complex was not very big as department stores go. this clearly speaks to a greater basic integration of craft into the culture than us north americans are used to. i allowed myself the patches, some thread and a couple skeins of wool and alpaca to crochet on trains. some lucky future shoppers can pick up neckwarmers made from these personal rarities, once the weather gets cold again.
