Farm- and Countryfair Aalten 2014

This weekend I’m at the Countryfair in Aalten. On Friday and Sunday I’m a host in the wool-tent, hosting the knitters’ table of our knitting group.

On Saturday I participate in the national spinning competition for a consistent thread of a certain thickness. In the morning we spin sockweight, in the afternoon aran.

I made an album on for you to enjoy.

Clomps around handspun socks. I want clomps like these, they are traditionally made in Eenrum in the Groningen but I’ll have to go there myself because they won’t sell online because they want to guarantee perfect fit.

Taking the cow for a walk. This breed, Brandrood Rund, is old and very friendly.
