Knitting For The Brave – A Soirée chez Jacki

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on July 7, 2010

The attentive reader may know I am a big fan of Jacki Terrasse, a club in Berlin. Every two weeks there is a special event at this beautiful raw diamond which I would like to call my own deck at the waterfront. Stricken Bar is every two weeks on a Saturday afternoon where ‘professionals’ from the 80’s and today’s hipsters meet with a cool drink under the sun in hammocks, standing, on benches with self-made pillows or however they like it. Because the knitting that I have been a fan of all summer long is not what some blogs would like to make it- it is the most relaxed and authentic get-together of various people enjoying the same thing: wools and needles. The fabulous French BBQ is a plus and a needle and wool bar awaits those new to the subject.  Attending the knitting is free of charge!!!


For those who are thirsty for some fresh location and some booty-shaking and heels-clacking to round off the fashion week, this will be my choice of place later on that evening, when the sun goes down and the night begins. The After-party is hosted in the same location with VERY fine house DJs. (Cover charge!) Shhhhhaaake…

Because I like you all so very much to join me for the party: I have 5 x 2 guestlistspots for the most innovative things you can think of that I should learn to knit in the future. Leave me a comment! (Winners will be announced on Friday)

    Considering the location of your knitting-sitting, what about a record sleeve? At an advanced stage, you could even (re)create cover art. Of course, you’d need fine, non-scratching wool for that.

    I love hanging out at Jacki Terassen but would love to see some more hammocks… Of course, you’d need really strong wool for that… Alternatively how about “magic eye” 3D wall carpets for Jacki Terassen?

    Am I too late to register for those spots on the guest list?
    I’d like to suggest several things that could become your next project – a lurex sparkling loosely knitted top that would lighten up (almost) any outfit, a combined scarf and hat knitted with extra thick wool – to keep you warm during the next oh so cold Berlin winter (which will definitely arrive much too soon) or, for fun, so many other things I might tell you later at the after stricken party…
