Which reminds me - I have yet to show you the acquisitions from my trip to Amsterdam. I bought a lot. 'Nuff said. I bought from two shops, Penelope Craft and Weldraad. My step mother-in-law had emailed me about Weldraad when it first opened, so we visited. The place is amazing - the website says that in the store you will find a collection of yarns, fabrics and buttons which are produced as eco-friendly as possible (it's in Dutch). The man working when we went in knew his stuff. Really knew his stuff - he told us all about the fabrics they sell, all the fibres and yarns. It is a must visit for anyone visiting Amsterdam! Penelope Craft was delightful as usual - very helpful and let me browse in peace! Another must visit, and they also sell yarns that you can't get in the UK (or can't get without going to London).
It would appear me and yarn diets just weren't meant to be!
