We're back! Packed full with beer fumes and knitting for the Oktoberfest! And we promptly launch into our assumptions about Oktoberfest. :-p Cashyie is determined to visit every beer tents and experience the German (well, actually it's the Bavarian) Gemütlichkeit.
Shout-out to Katia & KylieMac (have some M&M's. And do give us a yell if you guys come to Munich! And of course, we would totally go to the Rocky Horror Picture Show with you guys if we get to Paris!) If you like our podcast - not the knitting content in our podcast, but the expat content - then you'll more than likely enjoy K&K, too! Go listen to them and say that you're an Uncensored Knitter!
Cashyie gave away her chocolate body-paint...and I somehow revealed to the whole world about my sexual life... :-p

Life in Germany: This time, we all talk about Oktoberfest. But before we could get to that, Ms. B recounts how she almost got run over. We started off by talking about the fact that there are so many drunk people walking around and how Ms. B, Tini and DeKnit got hit on by some drunk Italians. Cashyie's drunken train ride back to Munich from Benediktbeuern. How to keep yourself entertained at the Oktoberfest watching drunken people trying to get on the "Toboggan" ride.
Oktoberfest is supposed to be the biggest folk festival in the world. We talk about the length of the Lederhosn. The correlation of a Dirndl's showiness and harassments by the drunken men. Old women with strong arms serving beer.
German Terms with Elemm: We continue with the Wollmeise colourways,
- Rosenrot = Rose red
- Granatapfel = Pomegranate
- Maria's Deepest Purple
- Brombeere = Blackberry
- Frosch = Frog
- Löwenzahn = Dandelion
We ended up not getting around to do the sock workshop with Yarnissima, since we were so drunk and she was tired. Das Schneeschaf was there with her super-cute boyfriend....and got all the knitters giddy with her MariSilk. Ms. B and Cashyie went and painted Benediktbeuern red in their drunkenness.
It was great to meet every body. Thank you so much!! We had a whole load of fun with you:
- Alala (Benediktbeuern post)
- Tini (Benediktbeuern post)
- deKnit (Benediktbeuern post)
- Das Schneeschaf
We also got around to do an interview with Das Schneeschaf / Andrea! Go and visit her Das Schneeschaf shop and drool (and buy) her beautiful yarns!
Cashyie remembered in the last minute to talk about her toe-socks.....*no comment*
