I bought the selfstriping Harry Potter sock yarns from Wolop:

I did an online test and I would’ve been a Ravenclaw so this one’s mine now:

The yarn has a miniskein option so you can make the cuff, heel and toe in a solid colour:

The other thing I bought are these rolls for spinning from Schaap & Draak:

Nearly a 100 grams of Merino with Bombyx silk. An impuls buy. Because just that morning I was at the farmers’ market to get some eggs and a stranger complimented my shawl:

Pattern “Follow Your Arrow 2”, designed by Ysolda Teague, knit by FiberRachel and worn by me whenever I feel berry happy.

Turns out raspberry pink is the stranger’s favourite colour. He grows them and makes all kinds of delicious things with it: he runs Raspberry Maxx, an organic farm just south of Eindhoven.

He has weekly booths at organic farmers’ markets in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Den Bosch.

We had a lovely talk. He spoke of growing and selling raspberries, I spoke of spinning and knitting fleece from organic farmers. I plan to visit their orchyard in the Summer, they have all kinds of festivities and lunch and high tea there.

I then bought some raspberry cheesecake and raspberry blondies from him. (I didn’t know what blondies were but a wonderful knitter at my catlady knitters’ party brought some and educated me: they are like brownies but without the chocolate.)

This morning I had raspberry cheesecake and merino-silk rolls for breakfast:

Two rolls missing: already on the wheel.

The Knit & Knot fair is today and tomorrow. They like raspberry too.
