About zgarn

I am a dedicated knitter since many years back, my grandmother taught me how to knit and now I teach classes in knitting to spread the art and joy of knitting to others!
Together with a colleague I run an online yarn store (zgarn) specialized in yarn for twined knitting , we also teach the technique Tvåändsstickning and we have people all over the world attending our classes at stickurs.se!

Myself I run an online-store (hemskapat) where I sell my hand knitted accessories.

My big interest in yarn and knitting drives me to visit yarn stores all over the world when traveling, and knipmap.com is very helpful for me when planning those visits. My comments on the stores I been visiting are my personal experiences, from my point a view!

about handmade BERLIN on Tue Aug 14 07:29:54 -0500 2012

My fiancé liked this yarn store, cause he could have a beer there, we are not use too that! We are from Sweden, and in Sweden you can not get alcohol at a yarn place, yet....!
He usually waits outside when I am in shopping.
I loved Handmade Berlin because it has a nice atmosphere and the service was great!
It is more of a meeting place than a shopping place and the selection is small!
It´s a place you visit because of the atmosphere and the service! When in Berlin, do not miss it!/Agneta Sweden

about Fadeninsel on Tue Aug 14 07:35:28 -0500 2012

A wide selection of yarn in different colors and qualities! Also some special offers well advertised. Two people ( workers) in the store, none of them interested in selling or offering help. I did not ask for help either. One of them was in deep knitting coma with something orange on the needles, the other one beyond the counter, were the also kept the needles and hooks.

about Il Centro della Lana on Tue Aug 14 08:08:37 -0500 2012

Largest yarn store I ever been too, I been there twice! Second time, just to visit this shop!
Very large selection of yarn in good quality behind the counters!
The also have handles and magnets for purse making!
A little asian lady spoke english, the manager doesn't!
Plan a couple of hours here, and don't be afraid to go behind the counter to feel the yarn that are lined up to the ceiling! Great prices!

about La Botteguccia on Tue Aug 14 08:18:44 -0500 2012

Super nice manager Elena Guzzon was happy when we arrived by taxi to her store La Botteguccia on Via Lodovico il Moro 129. Next to a sex shop.... that felt different!

We took a taxi because we were misinformed by our hotel, you can easy go there a lot cheeper: With metro ( green line) to: Porta Genova, yellow comuter train nr 2 til end station, then a short walk!

Great prices on knit pro needles! Worth a visit!
