Gwyneth does it, Kate does, everyone does it: Knitting is the new sex. If you’re looking for the perfect wool, try Frau Wolle. So far Josefina Eliggi and Luzius had their shop in Lucerne but finally they also spread their wing to Zurich. Which proves my theory: In Switzerland, everything comes to Zurich sooner or later. Under their label Anna & Juan it is their goal to find locally produced materials, natural dyes and old dyeing recipes. In their shop you find wool-, linen- and silk-threads, knitting and crochet needles as well as their own line of accessories and magazines.
Anna& Juan, Sihlfeldstrasse 93, 8004. Opening hours: Wednesday to Friday 12 pm to 7 om, Saturday 11 am to 5 pm

They’ve got all sorts of mountain sports equipment to buy or sell and, as we all know, re-using is good for the environment.
Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy. Price negotiable, email me [email protected], and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
