Lately I’ve been in some kind of knitting frenzy state of mind. Last month I went to the craft fair in Zwolle. Not everything has been knit up but already a big part of the yarn is used up. So all week I was in doubt whether to go to knit & knot in Tilburg or not. To go or not to go, that was the question. Final decision was made saturday morning. Because it was closer to me than Zwolle I couldn’t let it pass. The fair was ok. Not als big as the one in Zwolle and held in a really dark building. When buying yarn, especially the more expensive hand dyed yarns I want to feel AND SEE. Add to this disappointment the prepaid parking for way more time than needed and I don’t think I’ll bother to go next time. Nonetheless I did buy some beautiful stuff.
Visiting a yarn fair can be overwhelming. I like to make a first round with minimal shopping. Just browsing and loving things. After that, I have a pretty good made up mind about what I really really love. So the second round is the great big spender round. And although the light was pretty bad I did buy some lovelies. One of the things on my shopping list I didn’t find at the fair. Now I needed to visit the not so local for me favorite LYS, Het Breipunt in Stiphout. What a punishment 😀 For me Stiphout is about an hour car drive away. That’s the only reason I don’t visit her more regularly. The shop is teeny tiny but packed with gorgeous yarn. So I did buy some yarn there. And I had some delivered last week. For the next month it will be all knitting, no buying. Probably. Unless…no. I have enough for a while. 😉
I quit writing to take pictures and add all my stuff to Ravelry. I’ll tell you all about it later.
