Knitting in the Netherlands


Breidag 2014 took place in Amersfoort, in a perfect venue, Rijtuigenloods, an old tramshed. Lots of stalls where they sold mostly yarn, but also needles and notions and books and coffee and anything a yarn geek could want. 


I taught three mitten knitting classes. People got the Blomekrans mitten pattern, and a lot of Holst yarn to choose from - 90 colours I believe. I took some time to make the small balls (10 colours, in addition to the main colour), but it went surprisingly well. Here is the colour choice of one of the participants, inspired by van Gogh. 


Mmmm, yummy yarn!

The Blomekrans mittens can be knit top-down or cuff-up. Most chose to do them top-down, and I'm glad I repeated the Judy's magic cast on before I left. Now I don't think I'll ever forget it. 


For Sunday's workshop, Martien turned up with her Tuin sweater. Which fits her perfectly, don't you think?
