Vanilla worm and half socks

Brigitte Kohn reads from her book “Vanilla worm and half socks”.

Here’s a sneak peek:
“A knitting guide with entertainment value. Warmly recommended by cold feet.

Annette spends the summer vacations with her husband and dog in a remote house. Bored by the prescribed inactivity, she rummages through the old building and finds a conglomeration of long-forgotten wool scraps and half-finished socks. Delighted with this treasure, she sinks into thought and begins to knit.
She thinks of long forgotten places, situations and encounters of her life and experiences a wealth of wonderful emotions. The result is 13 knitted motifs symbolizing different stages of life. Thanks to their sensitive beauty and originality, they enchant even as you knit them, although or precisely because you don’t see them beforehand. Mystery knitting at its best.”

After the readings, Brigitte will sell and sign her books at the Wolle-Schweiz booth.
