Wencke Pertermann


Wencke Pertermann lives, knits and designs in Leipzig, Germany. Her grandmother taught her to knit when she was 8 years old and she was gripped by the knitting fever. She recently dabbles in sewing too and dreams of a self made wardrobe for all seasons. When she is not knitting or sewing you can find her reading a book or baking bread, pies and cookies. She blogs about it at strickmaedchen designs.
