Crafty, stitchy and vintage-loving peeps will enjoy areas like Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain, Prenzlauerberg and Hackescher Markt (don't let that limit you though, there is so much of this city to explore). Above is the Flea Market (Flohmarkt) at Mauerpark, on every Sunday. It's filled with loads of vintage and second hand clothes and homewares, as well as crafts and lots of yummy snacks. If you get a chance to go, don't miss the karaoke that is on from 3pm every Sunday.
Also worth visiting is the market at Maybackufer, Neukolln on Saturdays. It has a great mix of fabrics for 2 or 3 Euros per metre, crafty stalls, and delicatessen goods.
This is just a small snapshot of a truly wonderful city. You could spend months exploring Berlin and still come across totally new things. Meanwhile, of course, I was just getting started on the socks that I decided to knit for boyfriend whilst we were away. As you can see, I had finished the cuff and was working on the leg of the sock... more updates next post!
