The city of Berlin offers much in way of culture and art, an overflowing cornucopia of events, exhibitions and exciting places old and new to visit. Below are a few more pictures taken at the impressive TEXTILE ART BERLIN. I am going to do some more research to add the artist's name to each creation. The variety of work was simply overwhelming and it is hard to make a selection. Also see Textile Art Berlin Part I and Part II.

Speaking of new horizons - I came across a lovely Estonian Lace pattern which Megan Mills figured out - and in Aukland, New Zealand she is about as far away from Berlin as one can be - so hurray once again for Ravelry to have offered a meeting place for crafty people! I was so eager to try this lace pattern that I set aside other projects (a turn of events well known to fellow crafters), downloaded Megan's charted and written pattern and made a small lace patch that grew and grew. But now what ? No more of the same yarn - maybe I should turn it into one module of a vest?
Spring 2015 - the swatch grew into a shawl and was swooped off the needles by a wonderful friend who is now wearing it in California (USA).
