Yesterday there was a knitters’ party at Het Wolbeest, the LYS plus ice cream parlour I’ve told you about before:
In the back there’s a big wool studio for (felting) workshops and outside there’s a rest area where we sat knitting and eating cake:
Sock madness in the wild:
That Fabel sock at the bottom is a Symphony Socks competing for the last two spots on its team. Knit knit knit!
Het Wolbeest dyes some spectacular self striping yarn and makes a mean “arretjescake“, a typical Dutch, no-bake chocolate cake:
Another one of her self striping yarns, with a solid mini for cuffs, heels and toes. This one is called Cheshire cat:
I chose a non-striping yarn in colours that made me drool for ice cream with cherries and forest berries:
Wolbeest’ amazing felted teapot cosy!
It was a lovely day and my skein is already on the skein holder to become a Shelly Cloche by Devon Finney:
Yes, a lovely day. The ice cream was delicious! I ate it with such attention that I forgot to take a picture for you. Will have to return and try again.
