Are you ready for a special story?
Then grab a cup of tea and sit back on your #samtsofablau (blue velvet sofa) and listen to my interpretation.
A story about the #Grandhotelding loosely based on Vicki Baum.
Put yourself back in the 1920s in Berlin and imagine an imposing hotel. A hotel where many people come in and out. Women and men, couples, and businessmen.
They all leave little dots of memory on spotless white sheets.
But there are also people in the hotel who leave their marks. Not just small spots of memory, no, long traces. Linked to other hotel guests.
The instruction for this shawl reflects the story "People in the hotel" in English known as Grand Hotel.
How the story continues, you will find in the instructions.
