Back home after a week of summer camp! Berlin was so cool, it was cold, it was friends, beer and Autumn leaves.
For the occasion I had carried in my luggage a small project of hot knitting. A brioche point collar according to the patron of the Cowl Newsprint that I had already knitted ( and translated into French ) two years ago.

I ran out of wool on the end which is worth wearing, proudly despite everything, a mini-cap-kougloff a little chelou.
For the wool, the whole is knitted in Plassard trapper and needles n ° 6. The colors of this range are really nice and the soft wool for a mix acrylic, wool, alpaca rather successful and slightly hairy.
As for brioche point, the two-color rendering is still pretty. For the boss and explanations, it’s here: Cowl Newsprint (in French)
Now let’s talk about tourism, during my week I walked the city in search of the most beautiful woolen shops.

I did not buy anything for lack of budget and project related to wool I saw but I will return without fail at my next visit to offer me a little Japanese wool ITO or a skein of Shetland …
