On Saturday, my mom and I went to annual Frankfurt Book Fair. It’s a family tradition to go there and it has always been well worth going there. There are thousands of exhibitors, free movies all day long, you get to meet cool (and famous!) people and there are always cheap antiquarian book sellers from the UK where you can buy some awesome craft books for ridiculously low prices.
This year, we got to meet Arne and Carlos! There was a strikkedukker contest and the award ceremony took place at the Frankfurt book fair. It was great to see so many crafty people in one place. Their strikkedukker looked really awesome… maybe I should knit one, too?
Anyway, I bought a signed copy of the Julekuler book that I’ve been wanting to have for years! Guess what I’ll be knitting tonight? October isn’t too early to start making Christmas decorations, right?
Pardon the blurry picture, I didn’t have my ‘real’ camera with me and my cell phone camera can’t really deal with low light situations all that well…
Here are the books I got. I’m currently reading “Day of Honey” and loving it so far! Oh and the pizza recipe book is amazing… the author has some awesome ideas what to use as toppings.
Oh and I met my childhood best friend. Hah! 🙂
