A regular Saturday in Berlin

Untitled
Last night I went to bed pretty late and there was a big party going on in an apartment on the other side of the street. The whole street was shaking and they went on for hours playing old hits. Rhythm is a Dancer, Crying at the Discotheque, Mr. Vain, The Winner Takes it All, Rhythm of the Night, Simply the Best etc etc. I was waiting for Pump up the Jam but fell asleep before the party was over. Fell asleep to Like a Virgin. Anyway, Johan and I were lying in bed guessing which song was going to come next, until we got hungry and said Let's fall asleep so we can get up for cheese soup at Boxi tomorrow. And so we did.

For my fellow Berliners: When drive by asked me if I wanted to try out their service, I said yes! I love to drive around Berlin to discover new places and the greatest thing about drive by is that you pay per kilometer instead of per minute. The second greatest thing is that they also provide vans, so when you need to transport large things, just pick a van on the street. If you also want to try out drive by, use code SANDRAJUTO on their registration page and get 10 km instead of 5 km for free (joining is also for free).

Posted that picture of Wrist Worms on the Wrist Worms Instagram page today. Been working most of the day, except for when I went grocery shopping. The light was unreal! Tonight I've been making a very intense tomato sauce and tomorrow I plan to make my own pasta, haven't done it for almost 20 years. Looking forward to it, I think it will be very good for both shoulders and wrists to work that pasta dough ;) Hm... Eating will be my favourite part, I guess.

1 part of this post is a collaboration between me and drive by.

With the love of my life

Two passions combined

Untitled
Back in the days, I went out for coffee almost every day. These days I drink my cups mostly at home. Here is an exception.

Untitled
Kaffee 9 in Kreuzberg, one of my favourite cafés.

Untitled
Last Friday I went there to combine my two passions - drinking coffee and crocheting.

Untitled
The graphic material is always very well made over there.

Untitled
And details like these.

Untitled
Huge window, great for people watching.

I have to head over to Modulor in Kreuzberg today, maybe it's time to swing by Kaffee 9 again, this time with another passion of mine - Johan. Need a proper walk after last night's amazing dinner & beer tasting at Das Meisterstück, you can see pictures on my Instagram stories until tonight.

I know it's early to think about the Xmas holidays, but if you live outside of Europe and think about giving Wrist Worms as a gift - the postal service is very very busy in December, so hot tip is to order pretty soon to be sure they arrive in time for the holidays.

Wish you a great weekend! I'll bring my camera with me today (edit: hmm... forgot it at home)! See you soon :)

Signs

Untitled
The other day as I walked to the yarn store to stash up more yarn for Wrist Worms.

Untitled
When I uploaded the pictures to my computer, I noticed that I had taken lots of pictures of signs. So let's go for a sign extravaganza ;)

Untitled
If you've visited Berlin, I'm sure you noticed there are lots of döner shops everywhere.

Untitled
Fadeninsel it is! The yarn store.

Untitled
How sweet is this?

Untitled
One of my favourite parts of the city.

Untitled
The combo pink and green always makes me happy.

Untitled
Heh.

Untitled
Also sweet. Now I want to make shoots like this on purpose, has been too long!

Untitled
This is my favourite sign right now, it's for the computer games museum and shows different old games, animated.

Tonight I'm invited to a food and beer tasting on the other side of the city. Looking forward to it! Hope you all are feeling well.

Autumn in Berlin

These pictures look very autumnal, though Summer arrived for some days. So amazing with warm air and colourful trees. On Sunday night I felt a bit hyper active, as always, and decided to power walk to Mitte and back instead of going out dancing. Was a great idea!

Pictures are from the other day when I went out to buy some yarn for my shop. Been producing quite a lot lately, a dark green loop scarf will pop up in the shop soon!
