We drove back from the very north east of the Netherlands to the city of cheese and candles in the south west, Gouda.
In between we made a short stop in Bourtange, the historic fort, which hosted a x-mas market. The fortified town has a superb shape and I will knit it into my shawl later.
The Wolop Advent colour of today is a sandy brown and I used yesterdays teal to knit some LEGO blocks. In memory of the LEGO I gave my nephew on his birthday earlier this month and Lieneke from Wolop who is a real LEGO expert when it comes to advising on presents for 10 year olds. I chose the teal in a background of the multicolour. It doesn’t show very well but neither do LEGO bits on the corridor floors at dawn.
When I left Gouda after I had brought Lieneke and all the wool back to her studio I saw a large cow made of massive LEGO blocks and I had a good chuckle.
x-mas maatjes herring haha!
