In October my very best friend Wilma and me visited the ‘Handwerkbeurs’ (handicrafts fair) in Rotterdam. We loved it! We had enough time to catch up during our trip by train and did some knitting too. I met so many lovely people who are so devoted to their jobs (dying, spinning or just selling yarn). Even met some ravelry friends from abroad. My stash almost reaches ceiling but I’m happy with everyting I bought. I bought some handdyed mohair and already knitted 4 tams and 1 cowl. I felted the tams and they are so soft. I’m making 2 out of each color (a total of 6) so I can add some tams to my stash of birthday/Christmas presents.
I bought a little book about knitting toe up and started my first pair of toe up socks ever. Still feels strange...........
Some lovely Colinette sock yarn (you can never have to much sock yarn :D)
The most exquisite lace yarn (a blend of baby alpaca, cashmir and tussah silk. So soft! Bought by 'Storm op zolder' (Storm in the attic).
I also bought a new skein of Evilla lace yarn
Finished my Tesserae socks
And started another Gail for my sisters birthday which is on november the 18th so I what to do for the next two weeks.
I'm in a good mood because my weekend starts in about 3 hours and I'm longing for some me time!
Have a nice weekend and happy knitting!!!
